I've been saying "smdh" a lot lately. Cringe.
No idea when it started but cannot help myself
wish i could just say fuck or something
mostly just derogatory terms tbh. like retard and stuff
being 21 and not knowing how to use an apostrophe properly
tells a funny story about growing up in New Zealand with his surname and nearly getting the shit beaten out of him by some big maoris who thought he was "taking the puss". Can't remember exactly how it went though. Probably a "Who's on first" type thing.
Not sure where I picked it up from!
1890's that is!!!!!1
I might start using it.
Pretty much kills a conversation stone dead. Though to be honest most the time I say it I have nothing to offer the conversation anyway, so meh. I'm the most boring conversationalist ever.
Just alternate between these and throw in a question based on the last sentence you heard every minute or so.
"here we go"
I just dropped my bag and contents went everywhere and I said OH JINGS. I need to never say this again, it's becoming a habit.
Bunch of bad ass mo' fukas that only roll with the best and are the most hardcore bitches you'll ever know. They rule the streets where they come from and if they were where you are they'd rule them streets too. betta recognize
damn back of stop frontin' those them hardcore mo' fukas da Jings
HELP MA BOAB.
Is what Velma from Scooby Doo says.
How do you pronouce "smdh"?
I haven't been saying it out loud, just been using it on the internet. Still embarrassing though. Stuff I need to stop saying so much out loud: "For sure."
I feel so out of touch.
In what context?
or someone says something really silly. I guess it's just a variation of *face-palm* or something.
Pretty irrelevant in this thread.
to sort of take the piss, and now I can't stop.
guy in first year used to say "trousers off!" as a substitue for something like let's get the party started, and it took me two years to stop saying it regularly
I grew up in Cardiff where they say it, then managed to stop when I moved to Bristol. Turns out the yokels here add the word "to" also to this question so it crept back in.
'you know the cinema? Where's that to?'
Or "where is Ben to?". Shorthand I suppose for "where is Ben located precisely?". I am not quite as bad as some, they will say "where to she?". That just makes no sense at all.
because it has been explained up thread
You don't expect me to read the actual threads do you?!
"like" and "y'know". I tried for a time but my cadence went all Shatner. Sounded very odd and either a bit sinister or like I was overcoming a head injury.
Also, from my Stoke-y ex-housemate I now drop the word "to" from sentences, as in "Are you going shop?"
I call people man all the time. I think I started doing it vaguely ironically but now I can't stop which gets really uncomfortable when you are talking to, for example, a girl with a faint moustache who's probably very self-conscious about it (happens more frequently than you'd think).
had a horrible 'bro' phase.
'cool. cool, cool, cool'
'nicely' instead of nice one or well done.
'can't argue with that'
'logic'. that one disgusts me the most i think.
mind you my colleague describes everything that's even passable as 'genius! absolute genius!'
now it's an actual verbal tick.
not that bad with me yet.
quite a lot. It sounds really really patronising but it's just because I'm aware that I'm so ineloquent most of the time.
*sweat pouring down forehead becoming more noticeable* *has visibly wet self* *stench of
Keep saying it..
On the flip side it amazes me when people get offended by the use of mate. I've seen people get red faced about it in the past, and say stuff like "I'm not your mate. I don't even know you".
If I miss what someone has said.
My girlfriend's dad always used to take the piss out of me for it... But now he has started doing it. HA!
started using it ironically, then it somehow crept into my regular vocabulary without me noticing
think I've pretty much stopped it now mostly, but it occasionally slips out
and it makes me feel a bit sick
Always say it whenever I notice some ink on me
Swearword replacements so as to not defile my children's ears, unfortunately keep saying them in adult company and get weird looks. So I end up swearing more to cover it up.
(YOU STUPID COBBLER)
even if i'd not said anything relative, prior to what i then say. i don't know why, but pissing me off.
smdh just makes me think 'shake my dickhead'
It's a Welsh thing, but after ten years living in London, I still cannot shift it.
I think only a few guys can pull it off without sounding patronizing. Every time Russell Brand says it I cringe.
Instead of rubbish. Makes me utterly cringe when I say it.
like I'm frickin' Inspector Gadget or something
as if I don't already have 0 street cred
for a good tune. My friend started it, now I can't stop myself. Have to translate every time i say it around someone who isn't him.
Also have got into the habit of quoting song lyrics at someone whenever they say something that's in a song I like. For example, my flatmate always calls me an asshole, and I always have to follow up with "Ab-Soul, abstract, asshole" under my breath.
On the flipside, I'm actively trying to include more 90s-isms in my vocabulary, and it's not being as successful as I'd hoped it would be.
