    It’s not just teenagers. Some of us younger professionals have to battle not using the filler around old folks who still get aggrevated by it’s use. Language in general is a shifting, flexible medium; unless we still refer to positive items as being “boss” or “keen”. At least this generation fills with words as opposed to “uhhhh”.

    I say good point ‘anonymous’, as a linguist I say we need to appreciate that language is constantly changing. People who complain about certain words etc. use words that would have meant nothing barely 100 years ago. Love the strip, but lets not get bitchy about it!
