Yep!

3010269787_polls_yep_5632_719815_poll_xlarge_answer_1_xlargeI pay somewhat close attention to the words that come out of my mouth.  I notice when I say too many “you knows” or “likes” and do my best to avoid it.  Lately I’ve been stuck in the “yep” phase.  Whenever I’m agreeing with someone else I say it.  Every once in a while it’s fine to use it but not every single time.  I must be a complete yes man because all I ever catch myself is saying yep.

I decided to do some further investigation on other people’s yep usage and this is what I came up with.

  • you’re drinkin a beer, and u dont have nothin else to say.

Yep.

  • Alternately, an affirmative response with minimal energy.  Yes doesn’t work, it is just awkward

Sarah: yeah, swimming is awesome
Max: yep
Sarah: Hey, are you going to that party tomorrow at brad’s house

  • The incorrect spelling of the word “yup”

Girl: Want to watch the movie later?
Boy: Yep
Girl: You mean “yup” right?
Boy: Yup

I know this is a pretty fascinating discovery of the over usage of the word yep.  I think I’m making this post to put yep to bed.  I’m going to start throwing in some more “corrects” and “rights” to balance it out.
