Have you ever had someone disappointed in you?
In all of my years, I have come to the easy conclusion that this is the only word in the English language that no matter HOW it is said, it is always extremely negative sounding. It is also, in my humble opinion (and keep in mind I know what is good), the most hurtful word as well.
I used to dread coming home late at night. I knew I was in trouble when the front door would be locked, if I was coming home late. I would have to wait for the door to be opened, to see my father in his bathrobe, staring a hole right through me. He could have yelled his head off at me, told me how much he hated me for a son, stabbed me in the fucking eye, but instead he decided to just, very quietly, say “I am very disappointed in you.”
I felt like shit for days. I even tried saying it in an incredibly happy tone of voice as well. It sounds even more lethargic, and evil that way. You cannot under any circumstance, be disappointed in someone, or something in a positive manner.
This word is amazing. It inspires fear like nothing else.
In a nutshell, use this word to hurt, to cut deep and forever.
On a scale of 1 to a Rubber-Band Gun, I give this a 20 oz. Sprite.
