you know what really chaps my ass?

So, i've thought of an interesting blip in the english language that annoys me.

as defined by dictionary.com -

sure - 1.free from doubt as to the reliability, character, action, etc., of something

why is it then, that when someone asks me "hey, bundy, you wanna like, go to the circus or something?" and i respond, "sure," that they say "god bundy, you're such a hardass, you can't just answer yes or no?"

WTF! when i tell people "sure" it not only means yes, it means "yes god dammit, without a doubt and 100% certainly"


in lighter news, i ate 12 oz. of chocolate today and i feel like a million dollars

Just start saying "certainly" instead.

i've taken to disliking it when people say "literally" when in fact they mean "figuratively."

"The comedian literally blew the roof off with his routine."

shut up!
