Re: Over-Used Phrases That Make Me Scream!

There are quite a few that grate on my nerves.

”You know”

”Here’s the thing”

 

and many others, but it’s suppertime!

People starting every sentence with So.... And the word "literally" used in every other sentence when it doesn't have to be used at all.  I have to laugh when I hear some of the dumb ways people use this word....it doesn't even make sense in the sentence.   While I'm typing this, a host used it 3 times.

I'm dating myself, but my Daughter used to say "WHATEVER" all the time as a teenager!  She's 36 now, so when she complains about something now, I just say "WHATEVER!"  And we both laugh.

Since I cannot control what others say,  why should something that has no real impact on my life bother me!  We all have words or phrases that we use - probably way too much!!
