Default Re: Do you know what really irritates me? Kage's version

I had a history teacher who always said "essentially". That and his monotone voice made it for good napping.

@Lac3y: It's OK to use it sometimes, but I don't see why you have to use it over and over and over. Just use whatever object's name you're referring to.

Whoops, I can do that sometimes... the thingy thing anyways, haha

Any word of phrase is annoying when its out of place or used repeatedly. Personally I hate it when people say you know, that thing

No I don't!

I thought I'd make a thread about it, since one is already up and I didn't want to put this into the other.

It started to annoy me when my mates girlfriend used it constantly in a phone conversation.

Since then, (were talking months now), my brains latched onto the term everytime someone says it, and its become an annoyance. I actually start to hate the people using the phrase, haha.

The amount of times I've just walked past someone on the street, and 1 in every 20 times, its someone saying "you know what I mean?" to the person beside them, or worse, someone with a bluetooth phone.

At work, I heard this girl while I was working, using the phrase at least 30 times in 5 minutes.
My dad does that, and I picked it up from him, but neither of us say that anywhere near as much as the people you speak of.

Fun game...
when you go to a restaurant with a lot of people and the waiter/waitress comes to take your order, see who can throw in the most "likes" while giving the order.
