My New Least Favorite Word/Phrase
However, I have discovered something new to dislike, and in a short amount of time, it's become horribly over-used.
Disconnect means the activity of someone who's not really "in" to what they're doing. Phoning it in. Doing a sloppy job. A gaffe. Out of touch. A failure to communicate. Many thoughts, actions, and deeds come under the new "disconnect" umbrella. It's one stop shopping for buffoonery.
I have to admit that I'm amazed. This one came out of nowhere, and now I hear it at least a half dozen times a day. Thankfully, not in reference to me. I'd likely be hearing it a bit more, but there are bad acoustics under the bus.
Stop it. Stop it now.
