"Crispy" instead of just "crisp."

Areright, or is it are right? Used as a filler word, a transitional word between different ideas, or an opening word before a video, or other presentation. I maintain it is not a real word, but rather a hackneyed slang version of the word alright or the words all right

Once I became annoyed by it, I began noticing it everywhere: used by surgeons and other physicians in medical videos, chefs doing cooking demonstrations, politicians, comedians, etc.

Its use is pervasive in the US. A teacher friend of mine (at a NJ Montessori school) insists it is indeed recognised here as a real word, albeit as slang or informal usage. It sounds terrible to me either way.

R38 I like "Holy Crap!", but I prefer "Holy Shit!", sorry R48. When the right people use it, it really works for them, especially when reserved for really shocking awful shite. It can be very unexpected at times, and I like that effect. It must not be overused, or it loses its coolness.

He never did correct it. But that was the least of his problems. Fuck that guy (just kidding...women are annoyed by him, and steer clear...as they should).

"Sorry for your loss." -Specifically on social media. You MAY be genuinely sorry, but tell me in a different manner, or not at all.

"I (or he, or she, or they) could care less." - When they CLEARLY mean the opposite...I want to slap people across the face with a garden weasel.

R100, I actually prefer "no problem" over "you're welcome", personally. I guess it also depends on how either is used though. To me, saying "no problem" is just being chill and accommodating, whereas "you're welcome" can come across as a bit catty - sort of like implying they're keeping a score card of some sort of all your interactions.
