What Words Do You Overuse?

It's often said that if you want to be taken seriously, there are certain filler words or expressions you need to limit or eliminate altogether from your speech—such as "um," "like" and "you know." Easier said than done. Even if you don't care about being taken seriously, there are probably words you use waaaay too much. What words do you overuse?

My boyfriend says "like" waaaaaay too much. He's a very intelligent and educated guy, but he sounds like a valley girl sometimes...

I use cute too much. But how else can I describe that lil' hammie up there?

I'm guilty of using cute to describe way too many things... can't help it, cute is too cute! But that's certainly not the only word I overuse you know... it's like I also find it hard not to use other words like f*ck and that's cool.

If I could've, I would've picked so much more on that list. But "like" is my worst... I'm in a job in which I'm not very experienced/knowledgable and it's a daily struggle to get myself taken seriously. But I give away my age instantly when I say the word "like." Other Words I Overuse: Personally Fuck! Cute Haha "I'm all..." Really? Um

I'm extremely guilty of overusing "great" and "lame". It makes me sound about 12 years old.

I overuse "seriously?". I should really stop that, huh?
