The new word/phrase is Contactless.

As in Contactless grocery pickup or businesses. I just saw a commercial advertising as such and it wasn't a banking commercial.
I wonder if this will end up on my I Dislike word/phrase list like, Proactive, It Is What It Is, At The End Of The Day, and Having Said That.

If they had that here I would order my groceries and have them drop them off.

At the end of the day we'll eat the low hanging fruit in a contactless way. It is what it is. Having said that, I'll be proactive and say no worries.

Haven't had a date since 2000, that's not difficult.

Since the OP "isn't there yet", let's circle back to this thread later.

It's a new paradigm, generally speaking. If we grasp it by the horns we can beat projections.

Wow, that came out of left field. But, basically, if I can wrap my head around what you are saying, we just need to get our ducks in a row and hit the ground running.

Having said that, at the end of the day it is what it is unless you are being proactive to stay contactless!

Lemme add some of my pet peeves:
  • "What's your take on..."
  • "Rhetoric" (ruining a perfectly good word, when they mean polemic)
  • "Moving forward" (we don't want to talk about our past mistakes)

Yeah, Domino's has been pushing their "contactless" pizza. Sooo... who's making my pizza? I don't see any robots back there. Besides, Desiree is a friend and she needs the work delivering pizzas. (And she saw me riding my bike Sunday and challenged me to a race... I lost.)

Don't forget to wash your hands after each paradigm. We must flatten that curve,

Sounds like you're thinking outside the box.

Just as a quick real aside... the pizza goes into a 425 degree oven, for about 20 minutes... the box however does not, and neither does the driver, nor the vehicle. (Sorry Desiree... hope she's cute)

You would be far better off getting a bake at home pizza... removing all packing outside, while wearing gloves and a mask, then slipping that pie into your own hot oven.

Heat kills the virus... which can otherwise live on cardboard, for hours.

It doesn't much matter who makes the pizza, as who and how it is delivered.

One more to add...well not phrase or word but rather another complaint.
It's English accents. If I click on to a tube video and the person starting talking or narrating with a english accent I, as quickly as I can , click out. I just can't stand it. I think it's the way they seem to like to hear themselves talk. For example if something is hot instead of saying it's very hot they'll say it's exceptionally and unequivocally searing with heat", all come on MAN! I know, I know, I may be missing a lot of good or even important information by shutting myself off to someone just cause the poor bloke can't shorten his descriptions, but at least I know what I like? To be clear long descriptions in text is fine I love reading long post..no problem, just don't do a long winded sentence with an english accent.
The only person I can listen to with an english accent is Michael Bisping.

That could be a parody-sequel to Jodie Foster's Contact. Starring Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
