Today’s Word of the Day revolves around the word kinks: a word to describe a problem that a new product or new service is experiencing. We often use the phrase “to sort out” (to resolve) with kinks: The first iPhone had some kinks in it, like suddenly shutting down or having a short battery life, but the next generation sorted them out. Let’s see some examples:
George worked all day from home on Saturday to sort out the urgent kinks of the Mitchell project.
The prototype keyboard isn’t ready for the market; it has a few kinks.
Sarah was on the phone for hours trying to understand the kinks that her clients reported.
This car isn’t ready for the road, it’s got too many kinks we need to sort out.
How about you guys? Have you ever experienced any kinks in products you’ve bought or products you’ve worked on? Were they every sorted out?
Today’s Word of the day is relentless, an adjective that we use to describe someone/thing that never stops, never grows tired, never surrenders, and continues on (I promise I didn’t steal that definition from Tim Allen). It can be bad or good, depending on the context.
This relentless rain started 3 days ago and still hasn’t stopped.
Erica studied all day and night. She has a relentless work ethic!
The taxi driver drove us across New York in 15 minutes. He is relentless behind the wheel.
- Do you have any qualities that your are relentless at?
- Besides the above examples, when can a relentless person be a bad thing?
