Trendy Words and Phrases: What Annoys you Most?

Trendy words and phrases.  Some have the resultant effect of screeching fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

What is the trendy word or phrase that annoys or annoyed you most? 

Me?  The trendy word that annoys me most is actionable.

Today I received an email newsletter from a Certified Public Accounting organization.  Its tagline included the phrase "actionable intelligence".  Actionable intelligence?!  Took me 2 seconds to hit the unsubscribe button.

Have a great week everyone!
