Someone in my office had put together a list of secret code words used in real estate ads. Some of the words were: Charming - Small, Comfortable - Very Small, Cozy - Very, Very Small, Low Maintenance - Dead Plants & Rocks etc. It was pretty funny. So, I thought it would be fun to post up a thread of "code words".

Or overrated. I see that word thrown around here A LOT and I think "That's PRESTIGIOUS??? HA HA HA ROFL!!"

Unfortunately, the over use of it for certain areas that are NOT prestigious have made it worthless as a genuine adjective. lol
