This morning on the metro I was sitting behind a young woman who was making some phone calls. The first one was to some office and goshgolly she was *trying* to step up the formality of her speech. She was getting transferred around and kept asking people if she was going to be able to prove residency with a state ID, except she was saying, "Is it suffice to have a state ID?" Ooh. Try "sufficient" next time. Or try using a normal sentence that you know how to say.
Other source of entertainment: After that, she called a friend to report, and at the end of the conversation she said - said - "TTYL." What? The kids are speaking in IM-speak now? I guess I'd heard "OMG" out loud, but I thought it was being used ironically. Does it make me an old fogey if I prefer to say "omigod" and "talktoyalater"?
