Seriously, STFU: Bae [and other terrible slang]

I was young once. I used words that confused my parents & sometimes made them cringe…

[36 Slang Phrases From The 90s You Should Use]

These new words that are coming from a younger generation? Well, they kinda make me wince; add more wincing if I have to listen to it coming out of someone my age.

Bae? C’mon… this word drives me nuts.

bae urbandictionary

How did that happen? I mean, I suppose bae kinda sounds like baby… It’s one less syllable [that’s one clap – for you uneducated bae-using people] which would imply it’s easier to say.

That was kinda mean, I feel a little bad about it but…

Can’t we just stick with, Babe?

Sidenote: I enjoy the red squiggle under it; my computer does not recognize Bae as a word.Thank you, Google Chrome. I wonder how many people have saved Bae to their dictionary? I wonder if people who use that word frequently know how to add words to their dictionary?

…So many questions.

I hated the word, Bae well before I knew it was the danish word for poop; that was an added bonus. It added validity to my judgmental nature to a word.

That sounds pathetic. I’m thirty years old… so apparently, this is how I spend my time. I over analyze words… and judge them like a real bitch… and then, I follow it up with judging people who utilize these words as part of their daily vocabulary.

Depending on the who, what’s & where’s… my reaction to Bae [and other terrible slang] fluctuates.

Ugh.

Yeah, you really just said that.

Wait, did you say that? Was it a joke? …Are you serious?

[I feel inclined to acknowledge that the above depictions may be more glamorous than I, but are not exaggerations.]

Slang Story Time

When I was a young teenager, my grandma bought me classic 90’s baby-tee that said:

DON’T GO THERE in big block letters with sliver glittery border. 

When we got home from shopping my mother says something to the effect of:

Don’t go there?! What does that even mean? [ie: that’s a really stupid shirt]

Before I was able to tell explain the awesome slang I was using, my grandma says…

Well, I just figure it means… if you’re thinking about going somewhere bad, you probably just shouldn’t go. Don’t go there!

So, yes… I’m aware that this crappy slang is nothing new & I’m sure the later generations will come up with something even more nonsensical that I can over analyze & be all bitchy about.

But still… please stop with this Bae stuff.
