Thanks…I’m the same way about people misusing “triggered” or “triggering.” Now it seems to mean “overly offended.” But it’s actually about something that happens to people with PTSD. I grew up with Vietnam vets, and many of them had PTSD and would be triggered by certain sounds. So it bugs me when people misuse that word, too.
