I love "groovy", still use it from time to time...
But, words that really get under my skin when used around me..:
"network" or "networking"..hate that term all round when used in any capacity to do with discussions and/or dialogue or meeting new people.
"gay", instead of homosexual
"humankind", instead of mankind
"womyn" ,instead of woman/women
"spirituality" ,instead of faith
"how you doing?", when no one clearly expects an answer
"let's do lunch", something I eat, never "do"
