comment “Batchy” indicating a bad taste?
@Phil TRomano has it in a French-English dictionary from 1906 with the same meaning in his comment above. I share your doubts that this is linked at all. She has no tie to French (or marijuana for that matter, despite ongoing residence in Colorado).

comment “Batchy” indicating a bad taste?
My partner thinks it's based on onomatopoeia, anticipating a reaction of disgust that sounds like "batch" (similar to "retch").

comment “Batchy” indicating a bad taste?
This meaning is all I was able to find, but doesn't match up. She isn't saying that the person is batchy (which sure sounds like "bat-shit", which is interesting to me), she's saying the coffee itself is batchy.

comment Exaggeration of “Capable”
“Became a more professional accountant” could imply that he did not meet basic standards of professionalism before, and “became a professional accountant” implies that he was not employed as an accountant before.

revised Exaggeration of “Capable”
use/mention distinction corrections, removal of tag in title (gets added automatically to page title and would be redundant), removal of lengthy example of an option that doesn’t work
