Why is overusing "that" bad?
More often than not, "that" is an unnecessary filler word in a sentence. You can enhance readability by deleting it. Consider the following examples:
Original: Susy realized that she missed her turn and had to backtrack.
Rewrite: Susy realized she missed her turn and had to backtrack.
