It's really started to grind my gears when people begin a statement, orally or in writing, with "So, . . ."
When did this become a meme?
This meaningless introduction has become epidemic in some of the internet forums I look in on.
So . . . give it a rest.
While I'm ranting . . .
I believe the baseball card forums in which I participate would lose half their postings if the word "cool" was banned.
