I think we should ban the use of the phrase "game changer" and related buzz words.
If I hear one more YouTuber talk about how this shade of yellow is a TOTAL GAME CHANGER or how the nuance of this tiny adjustment to something someone else has been doing for years "totally changes everything" I'm going to have to crush someone under my foot, and since I am not in the presence of said YouTuber - because, YouTube - that means some poor schlub is going to receive a significant dose of violence not meant for them.
I think that it would be perfectly reasonable, for example, to laugh out loud and point directly at the next person you hear say "this is a game changer". And keep laughing until they leave the room or start crying.
It's obnoxious, and it's one of those things that isn't going to change because no one will do something like what I described above.
Harumph, and get off my lawn!*
[editor's note: On the off chance that you're reading this and don't know me IRL, let me be clear: I am NOT actually advocating for violence or even actual shaming someone. I'm just being grumpy and venting about something I find utterly ridiculous and annoying.]
*That shouldn't really be a problem because I don't have a lawn. 😜
Whoa. Check that out - emoticons italicize?!
Yes. There are actually things that are game changers. Due to the fact that they actually change things significantly, they happen super rarely.
