I'd hear "reach out" before we went to Kyrgyzstan, but it seems like it became common in the time we were there, because it's everywhere now that I'm back. People on message boards reach out to me. Facebook groups talking about reaching out. Websites are full of reaching. With this new job, we have so many people reaching out to us. It always makes me want to slap their hand away because I don't know these people anywhere near well enough for them to reach out to me. You're welcome to email me, or call me, or even stop me on the street. But please, no reaching.
Thanks, I feel better now.
