Here, I must pause for a moment to laugh sardonically into a barrel of muffling sand...
That's better, thank you for waiting.
The phrase I have in mind is "I'm freaking out", including variations such as: "I freaked out" "I'm totally freaked out" and "That would make me freak out.".
What gets me is the utter bullshit element of this phrase together with the 'I'm at the mercy of the big bad universe, help me!' sentiment that it seems to imbue. Dealing with these elements separately;
What exactly does 'freaking out' mean? From what I can tell, to the 'Whiney' generation it includes everything from raised eyebrows to doing a little dance and squealing, to running away from something quite harmless while smelling faintly of poo. Basically it really means startled, scared, disgusted, nervous, shocked, horrified...and a million points on the spectrum of any of these states. It's a drama queen phrase used to get attention, a childish way of trying to become the focus of a conversation if only for a second. It's a phrase used to describe feelings we all undergo during a typical week, yet the undramatic, un-childlike members of society among us simply use the appropriate descriptive word for our feelings (see above for examples).
Second bullshit element: if you can say "I'm freaking out" - as so many ****ing people do around here, then you are probably at about a 'ONE' on the hundred point scale of emotional stress. Having the where-with-all to even say that you are currently 'freaking out' means that you are not remotely close to being in a state that justifies even that ridiculous phrase. So stop it.
Get over it. Nobody gives a sh*t that you had or are having a mild emotional response to something. We all do, most days. You're not experiencing anything special and we don't care.
I think that just about covers it. Now please excuse me while I go and put on my headless horseman costume and patrol the neighbour's back yard.
