NO No No I had succeeded in forgetting that abomination but now you have reminded me.

Cars go forward (or reverse); people look to the future

The one the really gets me (and it may have been mentioned earlier) is the use of "upcoming". What is wrong with "future"? " Upcoming" produces a mental image of something rising like lava out of a volcano.
Agreed. Going forward we should use "future."

I have gone back a couple of pages and cannot find the current phrase I hate with a passion.

"we are reaching out to you.........."

"I will reach out to some of my contacts...."

Etc Etc. Reaching out!!?? FFS!! What is wrong with "we are contacting etc", or "I will contact...."?

Please join me in my hate of this (Americanism?)
