People Really Do Speak Like That

I did not believe that people really used words like dude except in movies when parodying surfers. Yet, in Southern California I have heard it used on a daily basis with no attempt at irony. Moreover, people from the southern states do say y’all on a fairly frequent basis. I am not someone to believe stereotypes, but sometimes they are hard to avoid.

  1. I use dude all the time, and man. Probably way more than I should. At least I don’t go all, like, Valley Girl and use “like”, like, every other, like, word.
