I agree with this.

We could simply use a different emphasis word such as "fucking." We could then fucking restrict usage of literally to fucking only fucking mean the fucking literal definition of fucking literal. However, if "fucking" is fucking overused, its fucking emphasis fucking fades.

Full stop has been getting on my nerves lately. I notice a pattern amongst its users.

heheh "full stop" actually
I keep seeing it used in political conversations (usually not very good ones). In my head I translate it to "I lack the ability and/or desire to embrace nuance and understand viewpoints other than my own". Maybe I'm just a jackass though.

I thought of another one I heard today:

Me: Should I do A or B?
Them: Yes
This reminds me of all the waiteresses who've ever asked me if I wanted their super salad. I always say yes.

Oh soup or salad?????

"I seen this..."
"I seen that..."
"Yesterday I seen him..."

I know at least one guy who does it in conversation.
How about "lemme get" while ordering food? I think it's more ghetto language.

That one's pretty common in the South. The one that bothers me is "I need..." No, you don't need 8 tacos, you just want them :p
