"Reach out"

The latest linguistic affectation that's in vogue with our Transatlantic cousins is the use of "reach out" to mean "contact".

Makes them sound like a third-rate televangelist!

But you have to be all touchy feely when making contact so you must reach out to be able to do so.


My pet hate is upcoming for future. Grrrrrrrrrr

Here's an example I'vejust seen on another forum, from a travel company responding to a customer complaint:

"If you would like to discuss your concerns further, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at 1-800-xxx-xxxx."
