I used the word "extant" in a memo at work one time. My (crazy) stupid boss told me to "use words everyone knows." Presumably only one syllable ones.... (Same boss who was furious because I used square bullet points in another memo).I once used the word "mortified" in a conversation and a dude got mad at me for being uppity. It's not your fault other people are stupid.

Wait. I thought you were taking your classes online? What are you doing on campus?Those who prefer to dwell in a world based on crude superstition, foul outlook, degradation of self and environment, and guttural outbursts are free to continue in their practices also, but my standard shall be to avoid such company to the best of my ability.
