    "I get that ..."

    What was wrong with good old "I understand", "I empathize" or "I appreciate"?

    It's a one size fits all homogenous acknowledgement smacking of insincerity, misunderstanding and intolerance.

    That is such a great word, because it's totally appropriate for use around children (at least in the US), and those that know what it means totally understand what you mean. Know what I mean, jelly bean?

    "Getting" things "on".

    For example, the local news idiots, in their never ending quest to be trendy, had a piece on holiday shopping advice. But instead of just calling it that, they introduced it with "in this segment we show you how to get your shop on".

    And it's that way with everything now. Going to restaurant? Well that's just "getting your food on". Going on a car trip? That's now "getting your drive on". And so forth.

    --- The concept that we need to "re-imagine" something...

    --- Referring to a new employee as a new "hire"...

    --- (In response to "How's it goin'"?) "It's goin'"...

    I really hope it isn't a a thing. How lame! Our births are bigger than an excuse to eat cake.
    Reddit puts a cake emoji next to your username one day a year, and it's supposed to be fun? It's not :D Reddit is so lame that nobody dares speak of it IRL.

    How about the word, "ICONIC". Oh yeah, they're a total cliche and a parody of themselves, so let's just call 'em iconic :)
