What on Earth has happened to the phrase, you are invited to a meeting at the village hall?
The other day I was invited to this bit of rubbish - 'an information sharing event.'
My church no longer has pledge drive kickoff dinners, it has "festive meals."
Politicians no longer raise taxes, they correct rates so everyone pays his "fair share."
It's hard to find a used car anymore, but you can get plenty that are "preowned."
An act of guerrilla war isn't an attack, it's a a "spontaneous event."
Deceptive marketing has taken over the world.
Thanks for the visit and comment Attikos. I would have thought that more people would have something to say about this pathetic mode of language.
You'd think writers would be interested in it, wouldn't you?
