Completely eradicate it from your vocabulary.
Even when you’re not speaking to us.
Even when you think we can’t hear you.
Even when no one else is around.
It’s not your word to use. It’s not your word to describe anything negative that happens in your life.
Did your teacher forget to grade your assignment? That’s so irritating.
Did your best friend forget you were hanging out today? That’s so frustrating.
Did you do really bad on a test? That’s so disappointing.
If you truly want to make the world a better place, don’t paint your nails blue, don’t dump blue dye into fountains, don’t buy a mug or a T-shirt with a puzzle piece on them.
STOP SAYING THE R-WORD. THAT HELPS.
