Hot new word: Fetch meet Totes

So there is a hot new word in my cubicle land: totes.

Fetch meet totes. And what does totes mean? Honestly, I had zero idea when it was introduced into my vernacular but it's a word I sadly overuse a lot in my daily conversation: totally.

Totes = totally

Let's practice using it in a sentence.

Old way: Let's totally go to the movies this weekend. I would like to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

New way: Let's totes go to the movies this weekend. I would like to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

This might seem odd, but I am guilty of overusing a handful of the same words. It's the nature of what I do, the overused words that you put in your writing and conversations. A girl in the office and I even joked (sadly) about how to have a conversation without the marketing-speak. We tried to but fell into hitting key messages without thinking!

So below is a list of words/acronyms that I use way to much on a daily basis:
  • FYI
  • BTW
  • Regarding
  • Best
  • f/u
  • like
  • um (which suddenly I've noticed everyone uses)
  • it's like....
  • you know?

So, um, like, do you guys have any words that you overuse, like I do, you know?
