    Default Like, Basically, Totally, ya know, u know what i mean??......

    Ok what the fuck is the deal with the over-used word Basically? and also Like? and also "You know what i mean?" when they are halfway through a sentence, or even just say 2 words and get stuck and think that they are talking when all they say are ...like....ya know...like...i mean....like...ya know...ya know....ya know what i mean like? ya know what i'm trying to say? HOW THE FUCK do we know what you're saying if you haven't even fuckin said it yourself yet??!!
    Everybody says "Like" when there's no need to say it, and also another word "Totally" is used alot although i don't hear it as much as all the other words and phrases. But in the last few weeks everyone is saying "Basically".....do they really know what that word means? I think they are just throwing it into their sentences to make their lines sound more longer and interesting, when in fact it is just a word that means nothing to that sentence and has no meaning in that sentence and should not be there.
    Another one is....."At the end of the day"....i fuckin hate this one.Also the word "Actually". As in someone saying "I'm actually going to the cinema tomorrow night", when they start a sentence. There is no need to say the word Actually in that sentence, just say "I'm going to the cinema tomorrow night". Unless they were already talking about the cinema then someone can say "I'm actually going to the cinema tomorrow night", but other than that there is no need. But the other ones "At the end of the day", "Like", "Basically", "you know, you know", "do you know what i mean?" really drive me mad cos they just say a few of those words and then think that they've spoken a sentence in which they expect an answer but how can you reply to someone like that? A prime example of it is this "I mean i was at the shop yesterday Rod and its just Like, Oh my God like, ya know ya know, like, i mean like, basically, - here's another two saying which are said by innercity Dubliners - And all, and also in anyway, there is no need to say the little word IN before Anyway, just say Anyway, and don't say And All, or the way its pronounced N all, or And Stuff, or And shit, at the end of the sentence, bascically totally at the end of the day like, do ya know what i mean like?

    What the fuck was that supposed to be?? Talk properly for fucks sake u dickheads!!!!

    And to add to the list...'you know that kinda way'. 'No I don't' is my answer and I get a confused look as the dim wits don't even know they have said it.

    Oh yeah and people who say 'we gotta think outside the box'....hate that as it is usually said by someone who has no brain power in the first place....

    All of that business speak wrecks my head - and politics speak, come to think of it

    Why say 'at this point in time' ffs - why not just say 'now'.
