This is not a grammatical rant. I'm just tired of all the damn threads that start with "So"
It's not just here, but a message board thing in general people like to open theire threads with some thing like: "So I was riding my bike the other day and..." or "So I was just wondering..."
Why not just say: "I was riding my bike the other day and..." or "I was just wondering..." What possible purpose does the "so" serve except to annoy me with it's conspicuous uselessness!
I've even caught myself doing it, and promptly punched myself in the face. In my experience, people don't talk like this. I know I don't talk like that. Why then do so many people start their posts with "so"? It's annoying. Stop it.
