Ever notice that people say “um” like it is a hashtag in a Tweet?
Instead of just pausing and catching one’s breath, people are using “um” like at the end of every sentence. I first noticed it on TV when celebrities were being interviewed. They use the word so frequently that it became annoying for me to even bother listening. Now, I hear it all the time and I just can’t figure out why it is trending.
Can you tell me why?
