People of the 70's and 80's doing the "umm" between sentences.

Well umm, we went trapping and umm, we caught a fox and umm, a rat or two.
Now that drove me crazy!

Does this irritate anyone else or am I simply being too intolerant and sensitive.

And if you ask someone a question, most of the time they will begin with, "Well, --------"

It is better than ending a sentence with F-it.

People just ain’t got no learnin in them. President Reagan used “well” a lot. Obama constantly said uh in which, at least to me, was irritating and the media proclaimed he was an articulate speaker.

Obama's constant uh/duh stuttering sounded like an ape trying to string together something coherent.

This is what I tell my wife:
“So” is not capital letter. “Like” is not a space. “Ya know” is not a comma. Punctuation is silent!

I wish kids still learned how to diagram sentences. It teaches you to eliminate unnecessary words. The worst part is they don’t even realize how stupid they sound.

Most common phrase in my neighborhood seems to be "So, how's your day going so far?" It was the first thing the plumber said as he walked in our front door this week. I said, "Well your here, so...."

Starting sentences with "So" has been bothering me for over a year now.

But what really drives me nuts is all the useless "actually"'s people are throwing in everywhere. It's always "actually" this and "actually" that. As opposed to what? Imaginarily? GRRRR! mad

I've noticed a couple youngsters (400 miles apart) that....instead of saying "I Don't Know" just hum/mutter the cadence that goes along with saying I Don't Know. Unh ONH Unh!

"prolly", "like", and "You know" When someone comes out with these I want to slap them real hard.
