D's off in college, and I've noticed when we talk on the phone (or during spring break) that she's upped her use of "like" about 200%. It makes me a little crazy, and I'm worried that it is going to make it difficult for her to get professional jobs because it sounds so bad. Any suggestions? Anyone who has managed to get rid of the likes or you-knows? I can cope with all the weird abbreviations and slang in text messaging, but the rapid-fire likes drive me nuts.
