Don't you know why the way people talk now is meant to drive people crazy with the constant k'k'k's of like exhausting me?

Like” is a good word, a useful word.  I like it. It has been in use since the Middle Ages. However, it has never been as ubiquitous in casual conversation as it is now.  I must admit that excessive and unnecessary use of like has been a pet peeve of mine for years.  It is commonly used as a filler, and it delays expressing an actual idea.
