Bala! There may be some persons who use these words without knowing seriousness of importance of these words. The usages of some of the words e.g. 'sorry' and 'please' have become very frequent and many do not know when they should use it. I do not react or take it otherwise, if some of the persons use these words on an appropriate occasions. I just let it go. It also depends who is the person using these kinds of words, if the person happens to my senior or my boss, I'll take this words seriously and if he is a unknown/stranger, I may think otherwise.

This coincides with a similar discussion on mine where I had expressed my opinion regarding this. I think these words are too often being profaned. It feels annoying to start with but soon gets to suck. I also find it extremely bad when people misuse certain facilities like cell phones. Now, what's the urgency of calling the doctor, who is busy with the patient, from outside his office!

Bala, I would not use these words if i did not truly mean them. In the same way i expect people to use them only when they understand and mean them. It gets me quite mad when i come across people using them randomly and just for the sake of it.

It sometimes bothers me. If someone say, "Oooh, I just LOVE cherry pie!!!" That doesn't move me. I've heard people say even this irritates them. If someone fibs that they love someone or they promise to do something, that's annoying. Why not just use a more accurate word(unless, of course, they are trying to be deceiving)? For some, a lack of strong vocabulary skills could be to blame as well. My vocabu-bank is pretty okay and I too find myself using an exaggeration for lack of a better word.

My ex used to use love as an excuse, whenever they did something wrong they would automatically assume everything would be all right again once they said I love you, it was a joke! The amount of times they said it, just fell on deaf ears. They lose their true meaning if they are used and abused. Like sorry, sorry should only be said if you truly mean it, not a get out clause every single time, sorry just won't do. Words become meaningless if used out of true context and pretty quickly fall on deaf ears.

True Wolfie.I rarely come across people who feel sorry when they sorry. I just could see that they feel angry or compelled to say sorry.

Hi bala, these days words are used too easily without any meanings, noone keeps a promise or sorry about anything and saying I love you when they mean I lust after you, as far as I concern nobody actualy means what they say, that is my opinon. Tamara

I too cannot use these words just for the sake of it.Once I had recounted my experience with the sanctity I had attached to the word' promise'[in some discussion].Similarly I know how a person responded with' wonderful' spontaneously to the caller who said that a particular engagement ceremony had been postponed. She immediatley retorted as to what was wonderful with that piece of news. THe speaker's was a routine response and she naturally was upset.

Right Kala.People are in a hurry to open their mouth to say something before contemplating the full meaning of it.

I think alot of words are overused and misued alot of times by alot of people. They have their own thoughts or meanings of such words but they have no clue how to actually use them and mean them either though.

Ignorance may be one of the reasons as you say.

That is true. So often words are used randomly without thought to their meaning. When one says, 'I promise...' does one really appreciate that it entails a serious commitment to do something? How often do we hear ‘sorry’? We say sorry so easily but do we appreciate the fact that it takes more than one word to demonstrate true regret? Words are powerful. The Buddha said, “Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.”

Take them with a pinch of salt? It depends how the words are spoken as to whether you take them to heart and believe in their sincerity. The way you've written them, I wouldn't hold anything to the words. Brightest Blessings, my friend.

Uneasy way to handle this kind of low attitude group of people. I used reverse psychology thru every action there will be reaction by using powerful idioms. Normally it works fine for me. For your prime question "What do I think" - I think this group of people, they need lesson but don't want to learn. The one from many effective methods to liquidate their hard mind is by using idioms.
