Pet Peeve

I hate it when I’m talking to someone and they say:

Oh hi, I just wanted to dialogue with you about…

What the?!! What happened to the verb “to talk”.

Do we have to use nouns now for everything?

Yes, this happened to me today.

I said: “You mean you want to talk to me?”

And she went silent.

So I said “Well c’mon! Who uses dialogue as a verb these days?”

And she said “Well me I guess.”

BTW – That is A dialogue.
