Ok shall I change it too...  and you know which massively unprofitable global "transportation" sorry tech company made that particular item of bullshit as prominent as it is today don't you

Dunno maybe. I’m still not sure it’s true. 

The term “Side hustle” has been around for a loooooong time although I’d say it’s a bit of an Americanism. 

Maybe Uber has popularised it a bit more over here but it’s not a new phrase.

Where did you go wrong? Not too late to request a paternity test.

Meet the Good Karma Yogi

One of my most vivid early memories as a child is of my Dad pointing to Yogi Bear at Universal Studios and shouting 'Yabba-dabba-doo' at him.

There is no such thing. There are 'jobs' and there are 'second jobs'. I have a job; it's not fun, it's not daring, it's not risque, it's just a job. This term is a deliberate attempt to make job insecurity 'cool' or 'glamorous' and it's complete bullshit. 

Is it?

i think it’s just a slang term for a second job. I don’t really see the issue.

In many cases the "side hustle" is replacing others actual jobs, so yes and because it's a "side hustle" those doing it don't give a shit about their employment status or their lack of minimum wage

Fair enough. Maybe the new usage has passed me by.

I disagree, because some people actually have a "side hustle". 

So for example a girl in my office is an accountant.   She works full-time as an accountant and gets paid well for it. 

She also has a side-hustle selling pieces of logs (from trees) as decorative items.  She makes around £1000 a year from her side hustle.  She does it for fun, rather than the income.  

PS - I'm not disagreeing with being pissed off when someone is doing an actual job and the media is calling it a side hustle.   Just pointing out that people do have side-hustles as well in some cases.

Another example of a real side hustle - my brother-in-law is a full-time dentist and earns well over 6 figures annually. 

He also has a side-hustle of buying random dental stuff in bulk and selling it individually on Ebay at a profit. 

No idea how much he makes from it, but i doubt its more that a couple of thousand a year.    Again, its a true example of a side-hustle, that he does because he enjoys it.

The implication of this is that his real job is a hustle. On that basis, I'd be wary of choosing him as my dentist.

Obviously your previous example of accountancy might be a truer 'hustle'. :mrgreen:

One to add to "dropped": 

"Curated" (in any context other than museums and art galleries). 

Hipster Records have dropped a new vinyl of deep cuts curated by DJ W*nker.

This might be one for the often wonder thread, but either works. 

When did starting a spoken sentence with “So...” become so common!? Has it always been a thing because I’ve really started to notice it more and more recently. The “so” always seems to be drawn out for a second or two longer than normal as well. 

E.g. “What are your plans for this weekend?”

”Sooo...I’m a massive word removed so I’ll be off being a word removed somewhere and saying so before a sentence all the time”.
