When writing your next letter, email or text, try not to use the word “like” in reference.
Don’t Say: “I am very tired of this job, like, I need to do something else.”
Do say: “I am very tired of this job. I need a new one.”
Some of us have grown accustomed to saying “like” during speech as well. “Like” is understood better when used correctly.
Example: “I feel like singing out loud!”
Not: “I was turning the corner and this guy like, hit me!” Either the guy hit you or he did not hit you.
