Your place in the world #93

mickocean

I hate the world duly, as in “duly noted”.  Probably because it sounds like the word dull. It gives the impression of being dismissive and lethargic. The spoken equivalent of “Yeah yeah, I got it lady!”.  I see it a lot in e-mails from co-workers and vendors.  I’m bitching about a word, but it’s cloudy outside, and I’m crabby.

I hope you have duly noted this.
