Amen. Stopped my wife (she works in consulting, occasionally says "going forward," "ping," and a few others that are annoying but tolerable) mid sentence to yell at her for this a week or two ago.
I basically said "what the **** did you just say?!?!"
But it's better than everything that's called a "weird trick."
Or "unpack this" instead of "explain/discuss this."
Should've told her to speak to her internet provider. Up that bandwidth.
Funny story. Few years ago we had my mother come in for Christmas, so my wife and in-laws played "buzzword bingo" with her because she used to rant and ramble about a number of topics. All 4 days my mother-in-law was saying weird crap to her to try and get her to say some of her phrases. She eventually won because my mother really, really is nutso.
