I agree on what you’re saying. But, another pet peeve is when people use filler words/expressions such as ‘I mean’, especially in writing.
“I mean, do people just not review and edit their work”
What is the meaning of ‘I mean’ in this context? We say it all the time orally. I notice we are now saying, in an effort to be diplomatic, filler words like “sort of” when we speak as well. It softens up what we’re trying to say.
There is so much we can improve upon.
