OMG! Make it Stop!

If I hear one more damned reporter use any form of the word impact again, I’m gonna slash my wrists. 

Tonight Jim Cantore (Annoying, hands-always-on-his-hips, NBC weather dweeb) referred to the nor’easter on its way to NY & NJ as impactful.  He then went on to say it would have impacts here and impacts there. 

Shit…Make it stop.

The DIRECTOR of the college writing center where I used to work used "impactful" when discussing a student's work with the CWC staff. I looked around and nobody batted an eye. This may help to explain why I no longer work there.

That is probably my least favorite of the "impact" uses!
