"you know"

you know the one that really bugs me is the constant insert of "you know" no i do not know, that is why i am asking you, you know.

when i watch people on tv if they insert it after every sentence, i get involved with listening for it, you know, and don't listen to what the person is really saying, you know. lol

When you're learning to interpret what someone else is saying, you have to try to understand what they MEAN not necessarily what they SAY. But English has many words and phrases that can mean several different things and it is up to the interpreter to figure out which is meant. example : EYE DROPS OFF SHELF did an eye fall off the shelf it was sitting on or were medicated eye drops removed from store shelves?

Yes I know they are going to commercial. All they have to to do to make me happy would to leave out the "but first". They are listing upcoming segments then redirect you to the first of the list by using that phrase.

I was thinking along the same lines..... a thread to point out others grammatical errors? That's what it amounts to.

So I won't say my biggest peeve, because I hear it all the time and have read it here a few times.
I will say that reading the words; appy, addy or prolly don't bother me as much as they used to because they seem to have become accepted abreviations when typing. Now hearing them might grate a bit

I'm still trying to figure out how NAV-Y is short for GPS An abbreviation for an abbeviation that contains more characters? That does not make sense to me, errr I mean makes no sense, err, doesn't make no sense

When people assume they're not going to like a certain food, even though they've never tried it before. Shut up and try it before you make your assumption.
