DP Daily Prompt: Verbal Ticks
Is there a word or a phrase you use or(overuse) all the time, and are seemingly unable to get rid of? If not, what’s the one that drives you crazy when others use it?
If everyone could instantly find their fault, we’d have this world full of faultless people, we hardly think we make mistakes, it’s also my problem, I am unable to write what phrases or words I overuse. However I do remember a friend of ours always used the phrase, ‘Do You Understand Me?”
He’d spend ten minutes telling my husband about something, then suddenly in his loudest voice would say, “Do You Understand Me Ali.”
My husband would look at him calmly and reply, ‘yes Dr. Gad I understand you.’
It was so annoying, I’d always tell my husband to let him know it sounds awful when he repeats this phrase so frequently, it also makes the listener doubt himself, as if he was stupid.
Most of us have this habit, I know I do too, but cannot remember what phrase or word I overuse at this moment!
