Every generation is entitled to a handful of really stupid phrases, but the phrases today’s kids use are by far the dumbest.
I mean, we definitely had some dumb ones pop up in my high school days. Who can forget “bling, bling!” And “fo shizzle my nizzle”? But no matter how many bad rap influenced phrases my generation came up with, nothing tops the phrase “just sayin'”
When I first started hearing people use this phrase constantly, I mistakenly took it for a replacement for “no offense” for example, “you look like a homo…just sayin'” could have replaced, “you look like a homo…no offense”.
Oh foolish me, I didn’t realize that just sayin’ could be added to the end of nearly any sentence and could mean almost anything. It’s kind of like when people randomly say, “word” (which I still don’t know how to actually define in it’s commonly used context…just sayin’). I could say anything and add it to the end and fit right in with today’s youth. “Sorry to have to tell you this, but we can’t save him…we’ve tried everything…just sayin’.”.
As I became increasingly annoyed with the phrase I tweeted “anyone else hate the phrase just sayin’? #stupidphrases #justsayin”. I then decided to click #stupidphrases in my tweet, which produced 2 tweets, then I moved to the #justsayin…the amount of tweets that included #justsayin was enormous. I thought I hated the phrase before seeing this, but was utterly disgusted by the time I finished reading a handful of these tweets. Go ahead, search for it in the trending topics so you too can see just how stupid today’s kids are.
Way to go American youth, you never stop making me want to vomit…just sayin’.
