YANBU - ridiculous overuse of the word.

It is what it is.

Another over-used phrase grin

OP: some totally normal problem affecting a close friend/relative which would worry most people

90% of respondents: You're over-invested! Get a life you saddo!

I think you're over invested in this problem.

You might be overthinking. Is this an actual problem for you wink

God yes. I read a thread earlier and at least 2/3 of the posts contained one of those words.

And yes, people need a new phrase/stick to beat OP's with!

We have our own version on The Archers thread which arose from a hilarious miss-spelling - over infested.

There's always a word of the month. Grabby, entitled...

There are families depending on food banks and this is what you get worked up about. Sheesh.

(Another style of reply I've seen rather more than I would like recently).

FreudiansSlipper Wed 10-Dec-14 19:02:43

yes I have noticed this

was a little confused how the op was too over involved with her brothers life when she was trying to do quite the opposite

another MN favourite is narcissistic. The diagnosis of this condition is very high on here

woowoo22 Wed 10-Dec-14 19:03:00

grin at over infested!

Is it replacing baffled? Everyone is always baffled atm.

That's right.

Everything is none of your business, and you must turn a blind eye. Unless you see a stranger in trouble, then it's definitely your business.
