Is it just me, or does 3/4ths of the United States population now start every conversation, dialogue, or written topic with the word: ("SO") ?

Even Glenn Beck is overwhelmingly guilty of this abomination.

It is driving me nuts like fingernails raked across a blackboard.

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

Fire away !!! laugh

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!

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 knew twin brothers. One finishes his sentences with "an' everything"....the other brother hung himself a few years back. He once finished a speech with "that way we can kill several stones at once........."

The one still alive....if he's screwing a lug nut on a wheel stud with his right hand, his left hand is turning too. laugh
If he's holding a cup of coffee and someone asks him what time it is, when he looks at his watch on the left wrist, he dumps coffee out with the right hand.
