so to begin with my blogging about this city and neighborhood i live in i will start with common sayings that i hear all the time.... and even catch myself saying.
#1: "thank you so much."
#2: "yeah-yeah-yeah" repeated really fast.
"thank you so much" is constantly heard over the phone especially when talking to assistants... i don't know what it is, but i can see why people say it... cause sometimes thank you just isn't enough. you really want to be appreciative of what they are doing or saying. so i've tried to switch it up a little and say, "thanks a ton."
and i can't seem to stop my "yeah, yeah, yeahs." that's just something i'm going to have to live with for a while.
i know there must be other things that are said and i've slowly picked up on. but that's all i can think of for this moment.

i say both of these things a lot. "thank you so much" even snuck its way into a survey i was administering - until the prof caught it.
in chinese its dui, dui, dui, dui, dui!
