    LOL my stepdad says:

    ...and everything like that...

    It used to drive us nuts as kids.

    "I was walking down the street, and everything like that, and a man came up to me, and everything like that, he asked me if I had a cigarette, and everything like that, and I told him no, and everything like that, and he got mad, and everything like that."


    That's literally how he speaks and has since I was 12, I'm going to be 47!! LOL

    Its soo hard to break!

    Ill start thinking to myself in the middle of a story 'man, youve got to stop saying like' then ill start trying to concentrate on stopping, it distracts me of my story.

    It's just a fill word, like um, or well. Gives your brain time to communicate with your mouth to make the correct words come out.

    TenneTru- Sounds like your dad just needs more filler time than most. [​IMG]

    Do not, I repeat, do NOT rent or buy "My So Called Life." It's one of my favorite shows, but every time I watch it it takes about ten weeks for me to quit saying "like." Arrgh!

    I prefer it to um, uh, or y'know, though.

    When my daughter says that, I ask if she means that whatever it is is "similar to" or is it really that way? eg., "I was like so mad" - were you really mad, or feeling an emotion similar to being so mad? She would always play along and say which was true.
