In honor of National Grammar Day today, I want to share some of my favorite wording pet peeves for a little fun. I am reaching to bring this into the lean world but there are overprocessing waste due to saying more than needed.
- “Free Gift”: I have never heard of someone paying for a gift. They are usually always free, no need to add the word.
- I need to “respond back”: There is no way to respond in advance. A response is always back to the person, so no need to add back.
- I was thinking “in my head”: Where else would you think? I can’t think in someone else’s head.
- “Tunafish”: Just say tuna. You never say halibutfish or salmonfish.
Please share your wording pet peeves!
