A Word by Any Other Word…

Share this merde!

Maybe I’m getting cantankerous – or maybe flat out intolerant – in my old age. But having seen the word “partner” twice used in the past 5 minutes, in two completely unrelated fora, to mean something completely other than what “partner” used to mean, this rant just overflowed.

Remember when “partner” meant the person with whom you were in business?

And remember when “bad” meant not good?

How about when “sick” meant ill?

And hey, remember when “red” and “blue” meant two of the primary colours? And “I’m blue” meant that you were sad?

C’mon, help me out here… I’m sure that you can think of more… is anybody else here longing for the ‘good old days’?

    remember when ….oh fuck it….never mind.
