"Just now" is a very popular saying here in Malaysia. In fact, you can hear it in virtually every conversation. It is probably over-used though, and used with the wrong sense of time. Here's a typical conversation:
"Did you call Mr. T to confirm with him?"
"Yeah, I called him just now."
My problem is when exactly is 'just now'? Turns out it could be a few minutes ago as much as it could be several hours ago or even yesterday!
The term 'just now' implies something that has happened VERY RECENTLY. I would say within the last hour.
Do you know of any other words that are over-used wrongly?
