Like, how does one become an adult and use the two words “have went” like it is appropriate and correct?
And like, how has “Absolutely!” overtaken my #1 pet peeve of young adults and adults who are not considered young adults any longer saying “like” multiple times in a conversation?
It’s even like, replaced my #2 pet peeve of people saying “Hey!” instead of the word “Hello!” or “Hi!”
Absolutely has replaced the word, “okay,” and “yes,” and YES, IT’S NOT OKAY.
May I please have the check? Absolutely!
I’ll take a #4 combination plate with a side of green beans. Absolutely!
Could you please describe what happened on the night of December 16, 1973? Absolutely!
Like, that word is DRIVING ME BONKERS. I HAVE WENT THERE.
I am not an English teacher – sometimes I absolutely wish I had, like, went there – but oh my goodness good honk geeze louise, people. I seen a lot of adults these days who DON’T KNOW HOW TO TALK AND NEED TO SMARTEN UP.
I seen too many people over 18 who have went to school and even became semi-professional in their like, white collar careers, who talk in this dumbed-down language, and I am so, so, so grateful that I do not subscribe.
I am grateful for conviction, too.
