When I was driving bus loads of high school kids around the region for sporting events, debate, theatre, etc., they would drive you nuts with the misuse and frequency of the word 'like', especially the girls. I would count how many times they'd say 'like' in damn near every sentence. Three and four times in a sentence was common. The really depressing thing about those trips wasn't just the kids saying it, but their teachers and coaches were also infected with it, no doubt just from being around the kids so much, and none of them were consciously aware of it. "Like, my mom would, like, say stuff, like, when are you going to, like, clean your room". I used to stuff napkin wads in my ears while driving to escape having to listen to them.
