It's a more straightforward version of a tag question used for conversational agreement. It covers the rather convoluted: Yes, it is, isn't it?
"It's really hot in here!"
"Yes, it is, isn't it?" or, more simply, "I know, right?"
Congrats, you're old.
And vocal fry...ugh
It's almost as annoying as the fad of starting every statement with "Listen" or "So". Just an old codger rant here.
Seems like when I was that age people said "really" all the time. It wasn't a question, but an affirmation.
Well, that's that!
You didn't leave us very much.
Easy to understand but whenever I hear it, I immediately believe the person who uttered that pointless expression to be an idiot.
..say what now?
My era overused 'Far out!'
Now I sometimes use lol, lol.
It's fossilization from formitive years when they would try and get their mommy's attention.
really? .……….. I know eh?
Crap olla, bottom of the 2nd page "again!!"
Don't bother to axe me.
I got nothing.
Can't be wrong like that, right?
I am also sick of this. I used to think it was something new, but I heard it used in a movie from the 50s or there about.
Perfect for having one's band buddy "do me a solid".
It’s today’s affirmation the saying that still bugs me the most is :Well it is what it is: WTF
Like what really bugs me ya know, like when someone like uses ya know a phrase like just ya know like as a space like to ya know think of what they’re like gonna say like next instead of like just saying ummmm ya know
Which option sounds better here?
"John would have asked for his money back."
"Yes, he would (have), wouldn't he?" or "I know, right?"
"Mary has never paid much attention to Steve."
"No, she hasn't, has she?" or "I know, right?"
