  • The afterlife...

  • Absolutely nothing. I find that term to be unacceptable, just as when people say "could have killed him" or "about had a heart attack". It's terribly insensitive to those around us, we often don't know other peoples journeys and should speak with care.

  • I don't. It's as offensive as those alice mentioned, and as offensive as the idiotic "football widow" or "hunting widow".

  • No THING is "to die for". As former military (I served 2 tours in the Gulf) my country was "to die for".

    And Alice is right - we don't know what another might be dealing with. "To die for" is a pretty careless and callous term. I'm aware that many people use it carelessly and lightheartedly - but people also use words like "gay" and "nigger" and "jew" and "retard" carelessly and even lightheartedly - does that make it right? I believe it does not.

  • Although not often, I've used it in the past. I never took the time to think about how it might impact those around me. It's true, we don't know what path another person is walking. Words have power and we should choose them more wisely. I certainly won't be saying it anymore.

  • I don't say it..

  • For nothing. I don't use that term. And agree with the point others are making - it's not really a good term to be using.

    Answer by 3boysandmekmcd at 3:36 PM on Sep. 28, 2010

  • I would never use those words.

    Answer by errantmommy at 3:24 PM on Sep. 28, 2010

  • I agree with alice and clearly many others, it's an inappropriate expression.

    Answer by ihatetocook at 3:26 PM on Sep. 28, 2010

  • I don't ever use that term. I think it's creepy.
