Isn’t that super…

Rant on

I’m sick to death of the over-use of the prefix “super”, usually to amplify an adjective, in business communications. Here is a shortened list of actual examples that I’ve noticed in the recent past:

super appreciated
super challenging
super exciting
super happy
super cool
super scientific
super deep
super relevant question
super useful
super interesting
super good
super eager
super impressed
super valuable

Personally, I’m finding this to be super-annoying.
