Any gay guy that uses that expression needs a slap.
No. But then you knew that, didn't you?
I think we discussed this long ago. It's the new, "um."
Mexican-Americans say -- "I know, huh?"
I hate it too and I've never used it.
Guilty here. I sound like an E! Channel talking head sometimes.
The texting equivalent "IKR?!" is infuriating.
I've caught myself saying it a few times. But it's usually in response to someone I don't like. And, I'm from SoCal, so it's not really my fault.
It's almost more bearable than ...
"Who does that?"
Oh no she didn't!
"and I'm like..."
Second thing I've seen R5 post about Mexicans
How many non-native English speakers post on Datalounge? I don't mean people who live(d) in Anglophone countries and have been speaking/writing English for many years. I mean more like people living in Nordic countries that use forums as a way to practice English.
I was reading other forums periodically but the grammar became increasingly bad. It initially hurt my head when I read incorrect uses of words/verbs but then I started getting used to it to the extent that I was worried I accidentally use some bizarre verb tense at work or something.
Well,it's like,you know. OHMYGOD!
This is, like, sooo obvious. Rolls eyes.
True That Grrrrrrrl!
Like, um, like, um....you know.
I can't. I just can't.
r16 reminds me... what is it with people saying "I forget" as in "What was his name again? I forget."? Shouldn't it be "I forgot"? Do I have the grammar wrong or do they? Or is it supposed to sound cute by being incorrect or ...?
I've been wondering for a long time.
