Questioner: Van

Subject: Like

Question: Hi Why do teenage girls these days say 'like' so often. I drive a school bus and its kind of annoying. They all do, some in every sentence.
 I'm not that old, but I dont remember girls talking like that when I was in high school in the '80's. The boys dont use it at all,and are the same now as they were then. Thanks for your, like, thoughts!

Answer: Dear Van, It is a new generation and a new way of them setting themselves apart from the last generation.

Welcome to the generation gap!

  1. This has been around since the 80's when I grew up. It's left over from the "Valley Girl" days. Like, gag me with a spoon, totally! :)
