    I can recognise your backstory, but going forward your narrative looks to be on the right trajectory.

    I was once told by a manager that I wasn't "proprietorial enough", I puzzled over this and then asked him to explain. Apparently I didn't tidy quite to his satisfaction

    There's all that corporate speak that sets my teeth on edge, like proactive and moving forward, and being part of a 'team', and being called 'professional' (if I am a professional I expect their wages)

    It's just improperly used. Obviously a death can leave certain things unresolved, for example a family feud. You can find ways to psychologically handle those unresolved issues, and find (a degree of) closure. You can't have closure over the actual death of a loved one

    This ilustrates another peeve, the use of 'but' where it would seem to me an 'and' is needed

    A similar hate with me is nuclear as a noun. This terrible use was initiated by the appalling Margaret Thatcher and others have copied her

    Totally agree with that chimp.

    I'm in the same boat as Genie, my wife died 12 years ago, whatever this closure is supposed to mean I haven't found anything resembling it.

    A couple of my pet peeves: "I seen him" and "Was you there?"

    How about starting every sentence with " So...... "

    Apparently I have the habit of starting many sentences with "Anyway ..." ... I've probably become too self-conscious to continue now
