    Only a matter of time before another "so" works its way in there (or perhaps a "very").

    Re: When did...

    While working at Safeway,I had a girl say "Like" like about twenty times.......




    Another time,I had a girl,& her boyfriend come up to me at work.
    She asked "Do you have like,aluminum foil?",to which I replied,"Do you want
    aluminum foil,or something like aluminum foil?".
    Her boyfriend laughed,but she didn't like,get it.
    Just Remember.......
    NOBODY ever says "COOL PRIUS!"

    the one that makes me craziest is the response to thank you being "uh-huh"
