“Man, do I ever hate that phrase, “giving back”.

I agree, it just rubs me the wrong way. I think it has to do with the connotation of “owing”. Not “give”, but “give back” like it’s a debt.

There is just something lefty/irritating about it.

“giving back” terminology has a certain “obligatory” feel to it so I understand your discomfort.

As for me?
