Haha...

This is a hard one for me.

Each trade has it's own jargon.
Each profession has it's own jargon.
They need it.
It isn't just spoken to exclude and annoy others.

Some of the jargon that I used to use in the past has become normal speak almost.
There is always someone who is excluded though.

What really annoys me is the fashionable buzz words and bullshit words.

Oh and the best for filtering out "wine snob" bullshit is to drink more wine.
Works for me.
(WOMM)

Sometimes my ears and brain does it for me anyway....

I just hear "Blah Blah Blah"

So no need to buy those expensive headphones.
