See Also: Utilized*

"People with all your fancy 'dictionaries' and whatnot trying to tell me 'enthused' is a word? I’ve got one question for you: who’s The Fucking Editors around here?"


*Except that "utilized" really is a word--a word I despise in the marrow of my bones. And now that I've said that, you're all going to make sure to use it in your comments, aren't you? Well, you suck for even thinking of doing that.

If they do, I authorize you to finalize them.

Why do you hate it so? Would you prefer 'utilise'?

Chris Clarke said...

She hates it because there's not one way in which you might use the word "utilize" in which you could not as easily utilize "use," would be my guess.

Ah, now I see. I will never forget hearing the announcement that my train was "Currently, at this present moment in time, running X minutes late".
