    I hate "sup" and the like. But seriously, if this is your only issue to grumble about, you should count yourself lucky! icon_wink.gif

    I know my age is showing because I think it is silly. I also think it is silly for teenagers and adults in their 20s to act like they're in gangs, but whatever. LOL.

    That one really irks me. One of my friends, he'll often send a text message just saying "sup?"

    I know many people see texting and emailing and more informal, and I do too, but I still don't get why someone would write "sup".

    This whole wassup and sup thing is getting old...can we come up with a better phrase? Let see...wassup comes from "what is up?", so if we take another question like "how do you do?" and we contract it we get "howdy"...hmm that is taken..ok any one else wants to come up with the next catch phrase?

    I also would love to know what happened to more sensible, polite sounding greetings like "how are you", "how is life treating you today", "good morning",
    "good evening", "hello" or a simple hi. This new way of greeting people in public with the "wassup" or the even worse"sup" is totally idiotic. It makes many younger Americans look like ignorant, unrefined, lowlife bums. I blame it all on that glorified poison from the entertainment media known as "hip-hop". I would like to see the hip hop and the gangbanging that goes along with it become a thing of the past. Also the way many urban and suburban male teens and twenty somethings dress today, they look like they crawled out of a trash can with those hideous saggy baggy oversized clothes. The worst thing is when they wear a baseball hat on their head backwards or sideways. That just gives any sound minded person the impression that many of these youths are careless slobs that don't give a shit about anyone or anything. It is high time to permanently eradicate hip-hop and gangbanging and all the hideous, saggy baggy style of dress that several younger Americans are addicted to unfortunately. icon_neutral.gif

    I thought it was either this commercial or the TV show "Martin." Remember how he was a DJ for a radio station called WZUP.... and his tagline when he got on air was "W-ZUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUP!"

    Ah well.... I hate to admit it, but I kinda like it.

    It seems kind of rude to greet someone with an interrogation, whether it's "que paso" or "how are you." You're demanding that people disclose something that might be private, or to make up a polite lie.

    "Sup," seems like it ought to be an invitation to dinner.

    A simple greeting or short blessing ("salutations," "good morning") seems preferable. But for some reason, some of them also rub me the wrong way. E.g. the earth-muffin-wannabes who greet people with "namaste." I'm not sure why... maybe because it red-lines all of my bullshit detectors.

    Ahhh... just don't talk to me.
