They say "like" a LOT, and we roll our eyes at each other when we hear it. But are we any better? Our conversation fillers are "you know" and "I mean," and we use those with equal frequency. We don't hear it when our peers utter these useless phrases because we're, you know, using them ourselves. Yet another sign of how our generation struggles to discern our own excesses and idols, while any hint of their generation's issues immediately grates on our nerves. Time to pay attention to ourselves, and take the "you knows" out of our own mouths before we point out the "likes" in our teen's.
