"so"

people seem to put the word "so" in front of other words these days

"So" awsome

then there's an extension of this, the "like so"

it was "like so" awesome

"like"

very little is said these days without the interjection of many "like"s

I was like walking to the pub and it was like so cold, and I was like shivvering real bad so I got the bus and it was like so warm it was lush...

etc.

very little of what constitutes a sentence actually adds to it these days, innit Wink

Being interupted constantly throughout a conversation by some ignoramous saying "yeah yeah yeah yeah" repeatedly, like they know what you're going to say.

LET ME BLOODY FINISH MUTTLEY!!!

"Basically" at the start of every sentence. Don't be basic, tell me exactly what you want.

This thread has really "hit a nerve", "struck a chord", "insert cliche of your choice". We all like a good moan. Wink

How about the bbc news with Hugh Edwards. When ever there is an outside live broadcast Hugh says "now over to ???" or "???? in timbucktoo or where ever it is" and they always start with "Well Hugh." Why can't they say good evening or thankyou Hugh or anything but "Well Hugh" aaaahhhh drives me mental!

Or am I just too sensitive Sad

Or just a bit too wierd Sad

One that I hate, frequently used by the 'cool'..

That's "so not" cool!' What the heck does it mean?

But even Shakespeare got it wrong sometimes.

'All that glistens is not gold'.

Gold glistens, so it isn't gold? Grin

I think what he meant was 'Not all that glistens (or glisters) is gold!'

What he actually said was "All is not gold that glisters".

Using the pronoun 'it' for he or she. The following conversation took place between me a friend of my son. It was on the 'phone:-

Me: Hello
Friend: Is Daniel there please?
Me: No, he's at college.
Friend: Is it.
Me: Is it what?
Silence.
Friend: Is Daniel there please?
Me: No, he's at college.
Friend: Is it.
Me: Is it what?
Silence.
Friend: Is Daniel there please?
Me: No he's at college.
Friend:Is it.
Me: You're correct in your use of the third person, but you're using the wrong pronoun. It should be 'he'.
Silence.
Friend: Is Daniel there please?
Me: No, he's at college.
Friend: Is it
Me: Yes, I'll tell him you called.

That's funny Nick but a reflection of times perhaps.

The phrase 'if I'm being honest' annoys me, why say this, are they usually being dishonest most of the time and are only being honest when they start a sentance with this phrase........

My sister, on a phone call to a call centre:

Call centre staff : "Can you confirm your address please?"
My sister: "Yes"
Silence......
Call centre staff: "Can you confirm your address please?
My sister: "Yes, as I said, yes I can".
Call centre staff: "....er... I need you to confirm your address?"
My sister: "Yes, I know. I'm waiting for you to tell me my address so that I can confirm it."
Call centre staff: "...er... no, I need you to tell me"
My sister: "Ah! You mean you want me to tell you so that you can confirm it. Why didn't you say?"
Nervous giggle from the call centre staff member.
My sister (kindly): "Look, I understand you are probably working from a script, but please don't be offended if I explain to you what the word 'confirm' means (explains it to him, light dawns!). "Can you do something for me please? Can you have a word with whoever writes the script and explain to them what the word 'confirm' means?"
