Like, no I'm not. This sounds like an opportunity to like make money. Make like an app with like voice recognition that will like send a signal to something like an electric dog collar. Then you could like zap them like every time they say the word like.

I hate americans who begin every sentence with 'So'

In UK people say 'you know' too much. Tony Bliar was no1 offender.

We have this local word "heynah". It's like a combination of "ain't it" which is not a word itself. LOL It can be used in many contexts.

Sorry, but I can't take people seriously when they say "like" every other word. It's a sign of immaturity or an inability to express yourself effectively. It reminds me of valley girls from the 80's who hang out at the mall... "like totally."

Join a toastmasters club. They'll cure you of it.

I have had a couple of those things over the years - "man", "you know" and the F word in all its forms. Just keep thinking about not saying it and eventually you will succeed!

I'd rather listen to ditzy blondes saying "like" every other word than people who say "that being said" before every sentence.

Saying it every two words is somewhat of an exaggeration, is it not?
