This is my first attempt at a rant so bear with me. I've been on ATS a long time and I really don't want to make any enemies, but if you read this post you will be forever changed. Every post, every conversation you engage in, every interview you see on tv or listen to on the radio will be forever changed. My rant has to do with the words "I mean".This is an infuriating phrase that EVERYONE uses. I have heard doctors, lawyers, athletes, tv talking heads, intelligent people, not intelligent people using this phrase in every conversation. Sometimes people will say "I mean" ten times in a one minute conversation. I've seen very old movies and interviews where people say it so it's not something that has come about recently, just my realization of it. I guess my problem with it is that if you're talking to me I know what you mean. You don't have to constantly remind me that you mean what you say. I know what you mean, so stop saying "I mean" to start off sentences,or in the middle of sentences or just all by itself! Its absolutely maddening ! Now that you know this, if you haven't already noticed it, you will pick it up in all types of conversation. You will even catch yourself saying it. I hope you all don't hate me for it when this happens, but it makes me smile that you will think of me when you realize just how prevalent this phenomenon is. Happy New Year to eveyone!

I mean....COME ON.


Its just an expression. I could create rants all day with all that is on this forum and outside this forum that drives me nuts. Instead though, I understand everyone is not like me. You may use a phrase or a certain type of slang that gets on my last nerve...but ...in reality it is my problem.

I mean, you know what I mean, like...All those things irritate me when talking face to face with someone, especially when they use one of the above almost every sentence...

Don't forget the equally annoying "I just...". Or the completely contradictory "yeah, no... ". And the ultimate combination of useless words "yeah, no, I mean, I just...".

I completely agree with you, in other words
