- we don't contact or email people, we reach out to them
- we don't agree, we align with each other
and most annoyingly:
- we don't change direction, we pivot.
These things aren't just wrong, they are utterly pointless - they are (mostly) longer than the plain way of speaking and they really add nothing.
Does anyone have any idea where this rubbish came from, so I can reach out to the original perpetrator with a machine gun?
