I

June 26, 2007

When you ask someone about their experiences, thoughts or feelings, there’s a word that many people use that absolutely irritates the fuck out of me: you. “You think…” “you feel…” You this and you that. Is it so hard to say I?

Maybe it’s emotionally easier for people to say “you” instead of “I” when answering questions about themselves, but it robs their words of impact and it’s distracting.

Have you ever noticed this?

  1. Yes, I have noticed that. Other things like the “you know” that people seem to add. Sometimes in multiples in one sentence! Arrgh!


  2. All the time! I hate it!
