Mensagem:  Oi Wagner, Yeah, the mis-use of the word 'like' is, like, a really big, like, problem - ya know? Teenagers and young adults often use it to such extreme that their ability to communicate is damaged. The term 'was like' is also used to mean 'said', bizarrely enough. Fortunately, there is a tendency for young adults to stop this habit as they get older, because it is percieved as a sign of immaturity.
