PUH-LEASE! Never, ever, ever, ever, EVER say that to me, m’kay? This is what I actually hear when someone says “I know, right?!” after I say something:
This is my awkward way of dismissing what YOU think is important or “conversation-worthy” so that we can put the focus back on me. I know, RIGHT?!
I dunno…I get a case of the ass about this little phrase, because it’s just so damned phony. And I have no idea how it caught on the way that it has, it’s usually followed by a hair flip or a stupid giggle or guffaw.The SECOND my kids do that, I get all up in their grill and tell them to knock it off because it’s not an intelligent response. I don’t want either of my daughters saying this. OR ANYONE for that matter!
My best friend thinks it’s sooooo adorable. Well, you know what? IT’S NOT! It’s idiotic. It’s stupid. And you are better than that.
Another one that gets me? You’re totally having a conversation YOU think is funny…you get to the part where a normal person would laugh hysterically and all you get is:
Yeah…that’s IT! No laughter and b-a-r-e-l-y a smile. REALLY??? You didn’t think that’s honestly FUNNY enough that you could, oh, I dunno… say, LAUGH a little? People usually say this one when they would rather be across the room talking to someone else. It’s like – DUDE – have the intestinal fortitude to just say, “WOW! There’s Joe. He looks HAWT! I’m going over there. See ya.” Don’t give me a “That’s funny.” and act like you’re not even paying attention. I could have been talking about the Holocaust for Chris-sakes.
It’s almost like we’ve forgotten how to be GENUINE in this world with other human beings. I have a more compassionate conversation via text message most of the time than I do face-to-face with someone. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!?! Thanks a lot Bill Gates. Your little brilliant -billionaire self has made us all a bunch of over-teched idiots who can’t hold a civil conversation anymore.
Do you really want to live in a world where your thumbs do all the talking?! I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!?!
