  • I used to do a lecture on "academic insults" for vocabulary building with my students. They had to think of someone they were really upset with and use "clean" and elevated vocabulary to describe that person.

    Malignant narcissistic curmudgeon: my former boss
    amoral abhorrent abomination of humanoid: ex husband

    etc etc... SAT prep high-schoolers loved this!!!

  • Who are you talking about? Sounds to me you are being a little negative, talking about negative people.

  • If the person you speak of has nothing positive to say, why don't you say something to him/her? Hey I like your hair, or that is a cute shirt.....come up with something to make feel better. And continue on with positive things to say...they will eventually get the picture.

  • slvrspoon98: thats a good point, although it is hard to keep complimenting on something good when you just keep getting negativety back

  • You could be talking about my coworker. Never has anything good to say and everyone is out to get her. I'll have to come back to this post and see if a word that describes her comes up.
