Not sure why any of this is attributed to Millennials. I've been hearing all this stuff for at least 20 years.

Then again, maybe if you don't travel much you may not realize it. I used to travel the US a lot for work, so I've heard just about every regional way of speaking there is. For example, "I know, right?" was the way a lot of twenty-somethings spoke in southern New Jersey in the 90s.

Well, that just sucks a bag of lemons. Louisianians have used it as a term of endearment for as long as I can remember (and that is a long time, lol).

Dem couillons ruined a good thing.

I know rigghHHHTTTTTtt??.??.

Is that a question or a statement?

I was working in Ireland a few years ago on a 9 month project. When I was in the airport in Dublin getting ready to fly back, there was a group of about 20 American College Students sitting in the seats behind me. (Nice to see a blonde for a change) and every 3rd or 4th word they's say was "like". We've all like heard it like I'm tryin to say.."

I turned around and asked one of the young ladies where they were from.. Again, every 4th word is "like".. I started smiling and laughing..

She said "Like, what's so funny?"

I told her "I've been over here for 9 months and I've heard the word "like" used more in the last 10 minutes from you guys than I did the whole time I've been over here. She says "I know RrriiIIIGGHHTT??..?.?

SO apparently, it's pretty much an American thing..

And then there's the jeans with the hand made tears in the front.. never in the back, never patched up.. And they BUY them from the store like that.. and they're over $100!!

Most of us probably have a gold mine in tattered jeans and we don't even know it..

Sounds like a variation of the southern "bless your heart".

My wife uses this phrase all the time. It sounds so sweet when you hear someone say it, but hilariously it is not.

Combined with High Rising Terminal:

Quote:
Research published in 1986, regarding vernacular speech in Sydney, suggested that high rising terminal was used more than twice as often by young people than older people, and was more common among women than men.[5] In other words, HRT was more common among women born between 1950 and 1970, than among men born before 1950. The same research (and other sources) also suggested that the practice often served to discourage interruption, by indicating that a speaker had not quite completed a particular statement.[2][4][5]

Cringe, privilege, triggered, safe space, cisgendered, etc... The vernacular of idiots. It's not the words themselves, it's the mindset they represent.

"Yeah, no."

The one that drives me crazy lately is younger waiters who say, "Perfect!" every 3 seconds.
What would you like to drink?
Just water, please.
Perfect! What will you have today?
I'll have the hamburger.
Perfect! With cheese or without?
Without.
Perfect! Would you like fries with that?
No, I'd like a salad.
Perfect! What dressing would you prefer?
Ranch.
Perfect! Would you like ketchup?
Yes.
Perfect! How is your meal?
The hamburger is cold.
Perfect! Do you need anything else?
Yes, could you please bring a cooked burger?
Perfect! Is there anything else I can get you?
Yes, you forgot my water and salad dressing.
Perfect! I'll bring you the bill.
Umm, first I would like an edible hamburger, salad dressing and a glass of water.
Perfect! I'll bring that bill right away!
Umm, I'd like to eat first, please.
Perfect! How was your meal?
I haven't eaten yet.
Perfect! Come back soon!

The "Perfect!" is always delivered with an AOC wide-eyed, raised eyebrows look and excited tone.

"Onesausagecheesebiscuit. thatwillbe$3.00"

No, wait, I wasn't done..

"WhatelsecanIgetforyou?"

Well, change the Sausage Biscuit to a Sausage ...

"Sothat's2sausagebiscuits.that'llbe$6.00,pleasedri veforwardtothenextwindows"

No!! That's not what I wanted to order!!

"Waityouwanttocancelyourorder? PleasewaitwhileIcallmymanager.."

"Hellohowareyoutoday,mynameisveryhardtopronounceso kindlyrefertomeasRasheed.HowmayIhelpyoutoday?"

I want ONE Sausage mc....

"Know what I'm sayin" Ummhh, you haven't said anything yet but, you lead a sentence off with that..

"I was like "Bro, what was you thinkin?" "And he was like "What Foo?" "and I was like "You feel me bro?"

And then there's the "vocal grinding" the gals like to use "What eveeerrrrrrrrrrrr..rrrr.rrrrr"

Oh yeah, can't forget "I know, right?"
Uh oh, I think northeasterners might have taught these to everyone else... Looks like just normal conversation to me...

I don't like when people say "no worries" all the time. That's sort of a new one for me.

It was cool when people did it just a little bit, but now.......

Also comes across as kindy too wimpy / beta / SJW.... Like, if maybe we weren't in this state of readiness to say "no worries" all the time, maybe things we be going better. It's like a made-to-order expression for placating people.

I dunno. Think that's maybe different in Australia, but here, it's like a beta youngster expression now.

Think young people have a few other expressions or tics now that I dislike, but can't remember em right now.

How about "beast mode." I don't think I want to keep hearing that forever.

Now I am mad!
I think it's actually from 80s pop culture, borrowed from coastal Californian youngsters, who had it from African Americans / rock n roll culture. And it's just kind of a coincidence that it's also Cajun.

That's just the way it seems to me. If you watch Dog The Bounty hunter, he's always saying bra, and I think that's the Hawaiian way to say it.

Seems like newly incorrect uses of words have been spreading around among young people... That's annoying...

And I don't like "oldster" that much, either.

Kind of reminds me, I'm disliking a lot of media / oldster trendy phrases, words, and misuses, too, though.

I hate how everybody since Bush has to say that everything good "humbled" them, as if that was really so poignant (or sincere). There are some things that should make you feel pride and a thrill-- like victory. You're experiencing glory. Jmho.

Or what about "It is what it is." Or "See something, say something." Instead of results, people have a manly phrase to throw at you. If we were really making the country better, we'd have drastically different policies, instead of cops and military people who are just barely allowed to fight the dangers and disgraces that are here and abroad.

How about the media trend of quickly appropriating Afro slang into news desk usage-- baby bump, etc.

"'Splaining" and "clap back."

Think they tend to be used by people who are acting like bullies. You could use them a different way, but in practice, it's more like splaining is used by the stupider person who's criticizing the smarter person in the argument-- like you're supposed to win by yelling or violence-- and clap back means you're going to throw your weight around in some awful, loud argument that's spinning out of control. Just step on toes and get the other person closer to losing their temper, instead of intelligently and politely discussing the merits of something.

Maybe it's an ill augur if we have hot slang that's about people having butthead arguments. Wonder if this is what happened before Rome fell.

Or what about mansplaining???? There shouldn't be a word that sort of implies that men are always weasels and just shouldn't get to talk.

I was starting to hate "bling," but I think that one's over now.

I don't know exactly when, but about 5-10 years ago a law was passed that everyone under the age of 30 has to start the response to a question with "so". Instead of responding with "we won" or "yes" when asking them if they won their game, they say "So. We were ahead in the last minute, they got the ball, but they didn't score." That's a "Yes" then?

‘Wanted to reach out to you’

I sat at my desk one day and heard a guy a few desks over talking on the phone and he used that phrase 7 times in under two minutes. I had to literally get up and walk away for ten minutes
