Cant stand it when you thank someone...usually a young person and they reply "No Problem".........or you relate an event and the person replies.."Really?.....I now reply that I was made the whole story up.......DW doesn't say that anymore

I am slowly learning that the horrible "A" word (awesome) will not go away any time soon. It and other words mentioned are mindless filler, the speaker has not thought out what he/she is saying but does not know when to stop. I hear teachers talking like a grade nine ball cap on backwards, no wonder the kids are not learning grammar. There is no one to teach them.

I talked with a grade nine or so young man several years ago that was wearing a ball cap turned around with the bill in the back. I asked him where I could buy a hat like that as all the ones I had seen in stores had the bill on the front. His eyes glazed over and he stated, "I don't know". They don't have a clue.

"Peace of mind" is another one that should be illegal.

It irritates me why a sportscaster says "that was unbelievable", if you don't believe it that get another occupation. Just my $.02 worth.

'sup peeps! Seems. like, we all forget that back in the day there were all sorts of sayin's. Ya know what I mean? Like: cats meow, groovy, what's shakin', daddy-o. You remember those, sweet cheeks? It seems there is a cycle where someone comes up with some "hip" term and it goes on and on and on, 'til the next "cool" term. Ya digging it? Some would call those terms from the past cherry or epic. Others, like my parents would argue they weren't groovy at all, and could get pretty hacked off when I used them. At times it seemed to be a heavy scene, man. But wasn't it a gas? Being hip and using the right verbiage was quite choice. And, honestly, as time went on people would argue those terms just aren't cool any more, like, totally dude. So, to make a long story short, I guess there will always be one term or another that folks will use to death because they have nothing better to add to the conversation, or aren't in the habit of thinking before they speak. Perhaps it's embarrassment from not knowing how to properly respond at times because it's not done via text! Just sayin'.......
Time to boogie.
