In no particular order:

* Cutting-edge (so overused we have no idea what it means, of what?)
* Proven (if it isn't, why would you mention it?)
* To be brutally honest (be honest, but hold on the brutality, I am sensitive)
* Empowerment
* Outstanding, exceptional, superb, wonderful, super-duper... it seems we could take a ladder and grab the sky these days.

I'll be curious to see what other people come up with. The consulting industry is particularly guilty of coining tremendously suggestive and quite empty words to up each other.

Thanks for adding those offenders to the list, Valeria.

You have now provided empowerment to add yet another exceptional, cutting-edge example: "state-of-the-art."

Your invisible word radar is working well.


Basically there aren't many things that people say that really bother me at the end of the day.
