You Guys - Update #1

Okay, it has been more then one day ...a day and a half. Here is my tally on "you guys" occurrences in the past day and a half.

1. A young chef doing a demonstration for high school culinary students and called them you guys. I brought up my "you guys" language police tracking and he still unconsciously said it two more times. He is trying to switch to "you all".

2. Today in all places and by what might be one of the most influential young ladies of our time
Miley Cyrus (Hanna Montana) greeted an audience of screaming 7-9 year old girls on the Oprah Show and called them, you guessed it "you guys".

I would love to hear where you are hearing this hackneyed phrase - send me your comments.

I hate to say this, but my 5-year old granddaughter uses this term constantly.

It's endearing and frustrating at the same time.

It's both annoying and endearing. fcqpwvs
