    I guess I've aged prematurely because the way these kids talk sounds so fucking annoying. Bruh, Finna, bussin, get the bag, it all sounds lame as shit to me but I guess that makes me lame huh.

    I've become the old man yelling at clouds. Feel free to add more stupid terms to the list sherbros.

    Yea it's annoying. I've never liked this idea of using new words when the existing ones were perfectly good. Its just teenagers trying to be cool I guess. Even "cool" was a slang at some point.

    But when i see people my age in their 30s trying to use these slang words casually, like if i'm talking to someone and they "alright, bet" they go down a notch in my eyes.

    Bruh and finna aren't new slang.

    This one is from the 90s.

    I think you guys are just seeing African American vernacular that has been around forever spreading to Gen Z.

    Modern American english in a nutshell. As a non fluent speaker I struggle already but with this shit I can't understand anything.

    Queen's English FTW

    Bet is 90s? I never heard it until a few years ago. Maybe its making a comeback and a lot more used now.

    Still, if you're 30+ and you try to incorporate this slang into casual conversation, its annoying and try hard. Might as well be saying "groovy" and "bee's knees"

    Im with you 100%

    I hate new slang

    I hate new speech conventions.

    When someone agrees with someone and they just say “same” that shit is gross.

    “Secure the bag” is such a trash line

    The word gaslighting is dumb as fuck

    It sure is, i don't even fully understand what it means but i know when i see it being used wrong. People just use it for a catch all for anything they disagree with.

    I remember when "simp" was slang for a vagina that resembled Homer Simpson's mouth. These kids today had to go and ruin it.

    I've heard "hella" 4 times today. Not saying it's new, but being reasonably new to the Bay Area I like it. I just feel like an imposter if I say it.
