Which is worse, listening to someone say "like" or "um" in every sentence?
For me it's LIKE, but when I'm nervous,I say UM a lot.
I'm going w/ "um," mainly b/c I am guilty of using "like"- one of the side effects of being a teen in the 80s : )
They both annoy me.
Definitely 'like'. 'Um' doesn't bother me that much, so long as it's just used occasionally as a pause, not every sentence though.
I think it is equally as bad.
