An Assortment of Things I Wouldn’t Miss

1. Nails and fasteners on a wall that have been painted over

2. Toilet paper that pulls from the back

3. DVD warning screens and logo animations that don’t let you skip them

4. Intro animations on web pages that don’t let you skip them

5. Business speak: leverage, value added, incentive based, win-win, incentivize, 110%, etc.

6. For that matter, Christianese: rescued from bondage, washed in the blood, sent forth, came to pass. For a translation guide, see this site.

7. Dresses over pants

8. The phrase “like so many”, as in “The offers stacked up like so many Sunday papers”. Why not just say “like Sunday papers”?

9. Bad MySpace page designs. It’s like the genesis of the web all over again, when everyone was a designer and about half the pages were unreadable.
