comment How would one convey “get over it” in Japanese?
I also agree that the answer for this has to do with 卒業する, as in "Facebookを卒業した" => I'm over Facebook (I no longer use it)

comment When is it appropriate to use お疲れ様 (otsukaresama)?
@Dave is right on this topic. When you leave you should say お先に失礼します then they will answer you お疲れさまです, then after leaving the building the security guard will say お疲れさまでした!. When I was not familiar with this particular piece of Japanese culture I used to say お疲れ様です and leave, and then somebody nice would correct me and say "I think you meant お先に失礼します".

I think that it is wrong because お先に失礼します is something you say when you leave work before others after overcoming the KY thing while they are still doing work, thus its usage context is very different in my opinion.

Thanks for the elaborate list of explanations. I found that Wikipedia has good explanations supporting your answer: ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%8D%E3%82%BF Furthermore, it seems that ネタバレ can be translated as spoiler, literally "revealing the core subject": ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%8D%E3%82%BF%E3%83%90%E3%83%AC

I understand that the contents of the question seems a bit basic, but I was expecting a bit more discussion regarding this word. There are a couple of good answers already pretty much what I was hoping for.
