AIBU to be irritated by the overuse/incorrect use of the word 'Disgusting'?
I see it frequently used to express anger, opposition, disapproval and annoyance but rarely in response to a truly 'disgusting' situation.
Disgust for me is a physical revulsion..I experience disgust when I see a mass of maggots or smell fish soup or see someone eating snot!!
I do not feel disgust when I see people wearing certain clothes, hairstyles etc. I am not disgusted by theft or fraud etc. I may experience other responses but not disgust!
Hate - jealousy of stepson
Dread - pests in the attic
Shocking - sinkholes
