This is what this language is coming to?

Your bedroom isn't cluttered, it's just "passage restrictive."

Kids don't get grounded anymore. They merely hit "social speed bumps."

You're not late, you just have a "rescheduled arrival time."

You're not having a bad hair day, you're suffering from "rebellious follicle syndrome."

No one's tall anymore. They're "vertically enhanced."

You're not shy. You're "conversationally selective."

You don't talk a lot. You're just "abundantly verbal."

It's not called gossip anymore. It's "the speedy transmission of near-factual information."

AND FOR STUDENTS...

The food at the school cafeteria isn't awful. It's "digestively challenged."

No one fails a class anymore, he's merely "passing impaired."

You don't have detention, you're just one of the "exit delayed."

These days, a student isn't lazy. He's "energetically declined."

Your locker isn't overflowing with junk, it's just "closure prohibitive."

Your homework isn't missing, it's just having an "out-of-notebook experience."

You're not sleeping in class, you're "rationing consciousness."

You don't have smelly gym socks, you have "odor-retentive athletic footwear."

You weren't passing notes in class. You were "participating in the discreet exchange of penned meditations."

You're not being sent to the principal's office. You're "going on a mandatory field trip to the administrative building."

You cant call a guy a bum no more. He is now economically challenged.

Tom - it's a shame that we have to watch what we say. I sell real estate and I have to be careful what I say in my ads because of discrimination or labeling certain properties. We can no longer call a house a "Starter" because what if an older couple wants to buy it. We can no longer say "Empty Nester" because what if they never had any children. It gets very frustrating trying to advertise houses when you have to be so careful how you word everything.

Not unchallenged, but unconquered. If unchallenged, there's probably a good reason you wouldn't want to go there.
