What word/phrase DON'T you want to hear this year

Question of the Month February 2016: 

Each month, I'm going to ask you all a question that will hopefully get  you thinking, keep your organized and/or give you a giggle.  So this month's question is: 

What one word or phrase do you NOT want to hear this year (2016) and why?  (Has your son or daughter been *working* you about something?  Is there a life lesson you'd rather have not had to learn?  Have you been relocated...AGAIN?  Is there a word or phrase associated with trials you've had that you'd like to be over and done with?)  

I'll go first.  This year, I don't want to hear the phrase "Over Qualified."  After a year of my dh being out of work (and hearing this as the excuse not to grant him an interview), I'd like nothing better than NOT to hear this word. Ever. Again.  In life!  

In all that time he's not had even ONE interview.  Most of the jobs, whose pay are in line with his former salary, he's been a day late to the conversation.  By the time he learned of the opening, the job was already filled.  The other jobs he'd have happily taken, that pay considerably less, won't even consider him because he's over qualified.

I am happy to report that he has been hired to a temporary position (oddly enough without an interview).  We are grateful to God that he finally has a job, but we are praying he finds permanent position.  And if it paid more and were closer to home that would be appreciated.  He does have an interview tomorrow so we'd appreciate your prayers.  Either way, I'd love not to have to ever hear that phrase again.  

So...what one word or phrase would YOU not want to hear this year?  What one word of phrase would you like to break free from?  Go!

    They sound like good words to eliminate to me too, Briana!

    Can’t. Moving truck. No. Overdrawn.
    There are several for me. 2015 was a crazy year.

    I hear ya, Yvie! I agree. This is the time in our country when it gets to be all we seem to hear about.

    what is ‘on the fleek?’ i must be old! LOL i don’t want to hear ‘election,’ ‘hillary,’ or ‘trump’ anymore. this has turned into a circus. it’s not reality tv….it’s millions of people’s lives. and the media is just fueling fires for the sake of sales and entertainment.

    I have never heard those words before. Had to look them up. I’m not one who uses slang much, especially newer slang.

    Congratulations to you and thank you. We are praying he has something permanent soon.
