Least Favorite Word:

absolutely
I listen exclusively to NPR and Wis. P. R., mainly for the information they offer not available on any other media. It seems every question is answered with the word "absolutely." Then the response goes on to elaborate. Sometimes the word turns up five or six times during a conversation. People should abandon this crutch for awhile. It gets boring.

""There's always the unexpected.""
