I hate this phrase to the max

November 29, 2005 10:18 AM

I hear it all the time and it irks me everytime I hear it:

Do you know what I mean?

And it seems to me that habitual users of this phrase pepper their conversation with it at least every 3 or 4 sentences.

Look, if I don’t know what you mean I will ask! Ok, f**ktard?!?

But I’m lame, ‘cos everytime I hear it I just grit my teeth and go:

*nod* Yup.

    hahahahahaa oh god! i have a friend who uses ‘fu*ktard’ as well..u really reminds me of him hahaha

    back to this post: those people are just a little paranoid… sometimes it’s appropriate to say “You know where I’m coming from” or something more tactful… i used to be that too.. and I got snapped by someone and told me “I ain’t stupid ok” ..

    ~__~ so even I didn’t have any intention, I guess it’s best not to add that “Do you know what i mean” … ahhaah 🙂

    eh? but aussies use that phrase all the time. especially the admin staff that are trying to explain something to you.

    lol it’s just a speech pattern lar, honestly nothing you can do abt it BUT grit ur teeth and nod 😀

    hahahah here’s a thought: why dont u imagine bashing them up or shoving a sock into their mouth or something? will give you a nice glazed look that makes them think you DO understand and it’d satisfy any violent tendencies you have haha 😛

    ally: you are pure EVIL. Hahhahahah.

    spinnee: I have a feeling that it is what you’ve said – ppl who think that they are damn clever and hence you being a pea-brain cannot possibly grasp their meaning. Yeah that’s it. Bastards. 😛

    yes, we aussies do use that phrase quite a lot, don’t we? haha…I must admit I do use it quite frequently. more of a habit than anything else though, it’s not like I think people don’t understand me. maybe I should try to use it less, didn’t know it annoyed people so much 😛
