I find it amusing that most men think the saying "happy wife, happy life" came out of the blue.

I personally think it came from a lesbian couple in California - *wink*

Ask any question or make a statement and the reply always starts with “So, ...”. The more I thought about it, it’s about the same as starting every sentence with “Well, ...”

Guilty... will change from "so" to "ergo".
Thanks for pointing it out.

This is one the best 'other topics' threads I've read in a long time.

I think it's 'wurd', which I use in place of 'heck yea' or 'you got that right'. I also use 'yo' and 'wut up' for hello. There's is also 'foshizzle' which can be used to indicate the affirmative, preferably to one of your homies.

"and, go !" .... very popular on Facebook when asking for recommendations. Drives me crazy.

"you're good" .... as a response to "I'm sorry"

"literally" ... as someone else said. That one LITERALLY drives me crazy :P

OMG! Before I became the boss, I used to do that at work to see how much of an influencer I was; the place was very cliquey at the time. "Outrageous" was one of my many tags.

Once the bosses started using it I knew where I stood.

I like My Bad.
It comes from pickup basketball games with no referees. If one gentleman committed a minor foul he would acknowledge it with a My Bad and move on avoiding any escalations.

One that drives me nuts isn't a phrase, but the trailing up of a statement sentence to make a questioning sound? Seems most prevelent in people educated at better universities on the east coast during the 2000's? I wondered how these people's confidence had been shattered, but it may really be they're questioning my ability to understand?

My boss used to ask me to "reach out" to people. It got where I'd say I would "reach out" meaning I might call or might email or might mention it when I ran into whomever I was supposed to "reach out" to in the hall. Or, I might do nothing until it was a non-issue. We are both thrilled I'm retired and no longer reaching out.

I have NEVER "leaned in" and hope to heck I never do. I'm sure I've said "true dat", but only in the most ironic way.

In high school in the mid 70's, I referred to less than average intelligent girls as "ditzs or ditzes", or they were "ditzy", a saying I might have picked up from my dad. But I can't recall. I w*rked in a 99.5% male dominated field 35 years, and never heard it again outside my family. I heard people using it the other day when in the grocery store.

I don't even want to know what girls called me back then. Or now.

A very close friend, that passed 2 years ago, use to say "to make a long story short" all the time. I would count how many times he would use it during a conversation. Since he died every time I hear some one say it, it brings back good memories of a good friend.

That’s pretty common still but often shortened to “Long story short, ...”.

I like it for several reasons.

I started hearing it back in the mid to late 1990. If you are just hearing it now, you must be old AF.....

Now AF is fairly recent......

I don't understand when responding to a question, the responder begins with the word "so". How is your mom? So, she's..... Who did you vote for? So, I think...… How is your job going ? So, I had.....

Watch on TV interviews, I see it all the time. Where did this come from?
