Does this bother anyone else?  I can't count the number of times hosts and venders have said "the" (something) or "and" (whatever).

 

Really getting on my nerves.

Re: Words "the" & "and"

Please provide some context so I can determine whether or not I'm bothered by what is generally considered a word that specifies or by use of compound sentences.  Are the words being used in a different manner?

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

Gosh. I use those words a lot myself. Sometimes no other words will do.

They're used as links when speaking.   The person is trying to construct a thought whine they are speaking.

It has to do with the electoral impulses on the brain.

I understand ‘and’, many people use that. I don’t hear it with ‘the’. Many people have to talk a lot so they need time to search for words. That’s why I like Jane T. She never needs to search for words!
