You hate when you're talking to someone online and you keep having to google the words they're using. Maybe not, but it seems like a lot of people who use big words all the time are trying too hard to sound smart, amirite?

Yeah whenever people use overly esoteric words it just makes them look like the antithesis of a competent person

I try not to use big words when I talk to people. :/

Don't be /: It's actually natural for you to use big words, I'm talking about people who are trying too hard.

Like the guy who works at mcdonalds casually slipping misanthropy into a description of his job to his friends?

Indubitably.

@TheBlindMan Indubitably.

That's one of my favorite words ever. The list also includes specious, usurp, loquacious, and jejune. Yay SAT prep. y smilie

I only ever use big words when people start out trying to sound overly smart. It makes me feel like I have to match them.
