    Default Your Overused Words/Phrases

    What words and phrases do you use - too much? The fillers, the things you say all the time that you get mocked for, your stand by phrases?

    Mine are:

    Actually -
    Ok, great!

    I also have a 'lecture face' but that falls a little outside the scope of this thraed.

    What are yours???

    Mine are

    "just my two cents"
    "What the f#ck"
    "Oh, you've got to be kidding me"

    the last two can typically be heard in that order at any given time during the day by anyone passing me working in my lab.

    When someone's telling me about their day, or something like that, I'll add little 'Ok's' throughout their disclosure to let them know/acknowledge that I'm listening. This was pointed out to me once by someone who found it annoying. They'd interrupt and go, 'What's ok?' 'Can I continue?' 'Ok what?' haha.

    I tend to say 'I don't know' as a filler between sentences. i.e. 'But, I don't know...'

    Also, 'So, yeah... ' as a closing statement, or a combo of both: 'So, yeah. I don't know.'

    And the words 'Honestly' and 'Actually' and 'Not Entirely' (i.e. 'not entirely sure'... a variant of my 'I don't know.' :-P)

    I had a really embarrassing spell in college where just about every other word out of my mouth was "dude."

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    "yeah man."
    "cool"
    "nice"
    "great"

    I don't get mocked, other than my own inner feeling of not expressing anything adequate, except for sometimes when they express exactly what I want.
