NEW SPEECH AFFECTATIONS THAT MAKE ME CRANKY


NEW SPEECH AFFECTATIONS THAT MAKE ME CRANKY


I get annoyed when someone says "ite" instead of "all right."  I guess this crappy speech saves a few letters.

I don’t get why people go to “they mom house” when their mom’s house is available.

“You know” automatically following every statement seems silly to me.  If I don’t know, I’ll ask.

“Like” generally signifies a simile is about to follow which will colorfully describe something.  Well it used to, now it just means “I need to pause a bit."

"Actually," is a great word to assure someone that a statement is true.  If you tell me you are a student, unless you are 93 years old, “actually" is not needed…just say “I’m a student.”
"Basically" should tell a person you are summarizing something.  Instead of giving examples of the many stupid things a person has done you could say, "Basically he is an idiot." Other than that, the use of the word makes you sound stupid.  

Actually I have basically become you know, like used to this speak; ite.  But there are now two new types of speech vomit that are the squeaky chalk on my blackboard (giyp.)

1.    Every start to any explanation now starts with “so.”

I.E. “Can you tell me how to get to Main Street?”  “SO, you take a left on Cliff Street and …”

What does the “SO” accomplish?

2.    Suddenly simple yes or no questions are answered by repeating the question.

I.E.  “Do you have a job?”  “I do, I do have a job.”

What the hell is wrong with just saying “Yes.”

In case you haven’t noticed these new affectations, I apologize for pointing them out; but I shouldn’t be the only person driven bat-crap crazy by stupid speak.

"Am I sorry for this post," you ask? "I am, I am sorry for this post.  SO, maybe I should just delete it."

SO, Actually I think I will like you know just basically press you know “Publish” Ite?

  2. This post is going to ruin my day. Maybe my week. I'm going to hear these things in every conversation now.

    The "actually" thing is something I try to avoid because it reveals that the speaker is a little annoyed/offended by the question.

    I keep it simple and try to use as few words as possible.

  3. I am guilty for using a lot of that. (with the exception of ghetto speak) What can I say? I'm sorry? I'm sorry if I ruined your day? The problem is that I wouldn't be. It's the way I roll...

  4. Joe, it's the slang that confuses me. Both granddaughters don't use it in conversation with me because it's a different language I cannot learn. To their amusement, I still use my old slang, which is still around. Cool beans, however, is kool beanz now. And what happened to periods! There are no periods at the end of text sentences. They just hit send instead.

  5. It's okay to be a dinosaur, i use proper sentences in texts and try to speak correctly and the rest of them can just call me weird and get over it!

  6. People who use "you know" tend do it almost at the end of every sentence. I broke a friend of that by quickly saying,"no I don't know" each time. They got as tired of me as I got of them. They really weren't aware of how many times they said it till I annoyed them to death. It sure felt good.

  14. What gets me is when people, instead of just quietly nodding in agreement, keep saying "Right, right, right, right..." while the other person is talking.

  15. 'ite' and 'they mom house' haven't taken off over here thank goodness, but we have far more than our shear of 'actually' and 'basically'.
    When asking for directions, instead of 'So', we often begin with 'well'.

  16. 'shear'?? that should be share. (*~*)

  19. My 21 year old college daughter says the word "literally" every chance she gets.

    "OMG, he's literally texting me every second. Like, I literally don't know what to do about it."

    "I literally have the worst teachers this semester."

    "I have literally no time for a job this semester. I like, literally, don't even have a life anymore. I literally study all day and night, and that's all I do. Literally."

    This is how she talks. It's literally SO annoying.
