Monday, May 7

If I'd had coffee I'd have thrown it in her face. Sometimes I scare myself.

She 1: If only I didn't have such a big butt, y'know what I mean? I'd be able to wear a much smaller size. Though, y'know even now it's only a size 8. So, it isn't that bad, y'know what I mean?

She 2: You don't have a big butt! It's worse being me. I have no butt to speak of.

She 1: *I* think I have a big butt. I never used to have one this big, y'know what I mean? It's only since I started dating Ian. We eat so much, y'know what I mean?

She 2: Yeah, I know how that feels. It's no use just you being on a diet if he's pigging out all the time.

She 1: Yeah, but I'm totally going to stick to this regimen, y'know what I mean? Like those ads on tv. Lose two dress sizes in 2 weeks, y'know what I mean?

She 2: Haha. Those adverts are just crazy.

She 1: They remind me of my bro. He's an exercise nazi, y'know what I mean? That's why I never work out with him. I just say leave me alone, y'know what I mean?

She 3 (standing up from her seat in the row in front of them suddenly): Yes, yes, woman!!!!! She knows what you mean!!!!! We *all* know what you mean! For pity's sake STOP SAYING THAT!!!

*exit bus right*

Some verbal habits are so annoying I feel like shaking the speaker in an attempt to make them stop talking. Especially on Monday mornings.

I used to have a teacher who ended every other sentence with the phrase 'like that one'. It's amusing for a while, but sooner or later it starts to make one's ears bleed. Y'know what I mean, like that one?

??! said...

ahh, yes.

just like 'actually', 'basically', and 'oh my god' (especially irritating coming from self-avowed atheists).

@anon: Gah! Knew it!

@nath: Hahahaha :). It didn't amuse me at all. *At all*.

@anon2: Tsk tsk. We are not into such clumsy activities.

@??!: See, you understand.

My vote goes to 'per se'. Hate hate hate. Especially when accompanied by raised eyebrows

@cloudy: Hahahaha. Per se is a rotten phrase isn't it? But I *adore* raised eyebrows. I *do* raised eyebrows. All the time. It's an art form!

Cloudy said...

Oh yes, raised eyebrows by themselves are great, just not in combination with per se! :)

A-ha! I see the fine distinction :)
