New York Bar Will Kick You Out For Using A Popular Word
Do your children use the word "literally" in just about every sentence. My 30-year-old son doesn't but my 24-year-old daughter certainly does. Every generation finds a word to hang it's hat on I guess. "Cool", "Groovy", "Far-Out", "Dope", a new one is "Clutch" and of course the dreaded "Literally". The problem arises when a generation becomes dependent on a particular word or phrase, overusing them. Grammar crutches is the way I describe it. The phrase, "No Problem" is one I currently can't stand. A bar in New York is so fed up with people using the word "literally" that it will throw out any customer who says it.
