"Unprecedented times", "we're all in this together", "uncertain time" this are the words and phrases I see in the emails, commercials, and other Covid propaganda being sent out these days. My general reaction has been, "well that's a stupid comment!" Especially the "We're all in this together". Now people, you know that is a bunch of non sense. Those in customer service jobs are the ones who are "in this all together". They were the ones providing services to the more economically well off.
Unprecedented times? Really? Doesn't anyone study or look back at the history of this world? There have been many pandemics and health crises throughout life on planet Earth. "Uncertain times"? All time is uncertain. Again, look back through history.
Some marketing "genius" was paid big $$$ for creating and regurgitating those terms at us. Of course everyone copied the terms and used them in relation to their business or service. Now when I hear a commercial or an email with those terms I just say, "Shut up!"
We know we are all going through a personal trial, major trial, or even a life changing or ending event. We don't need your stupid phrases and comments on us all being together. What's next, the slogan "air is good"?
