What Do I Know?

Y’know, there are many explanations as to why so many people, y’know,  punctuate their sentences with the phrase “y’know” frequently. I disagree with all of them.

My theory, y’know, is that, y’know, it is, y’know, used simply out of habit—a very bad habit. I am sure, y’know, that most people, y’know, are not aware, y’know, that they are saying it so much.




It turns me off so much that I stop listening to what they are saying. I am thankful that it is not used in writing, as in this blog. While it is easy to use the phrase when speaking, it is extremely difficult to replicate it in writing.
