I interrupt your workday for a brief public service announcement regarding word choice:

Certain words make people take notice. For example? The words “emergency” and “urgent.”

Two separate people in my life each claim one of these words as a top-10 favorite. Meaning they throw it around on a weekly, if not daily, basis.

The result? I’m over it. If EVERY issue is urgent? Guess what. NONE OF THEM ARE.

If we are constantly facing EMERGENCY SITUATIONS? I’m not really feeling the burn to address this one.

Someone should read these people the story about the little kid who cried wolf. Or emergency. Or whatever.
