  1. I think of that as more something dudes in general say to each other than specifically urban...but I guess it's not rural, either! :)

  3. I can't stand it when people love to put down other people by asking questions like that.Amazing how some open their mouths all the time before thinking.

  7. The next generation sure does have their own vocabulary. I have three daughters that use these "urban" expressions, but if I pick it up from them, they are completely disgusted and make me swear to NEVER utter it again!

  9. I agree with Megan above, it just seems to be more of a way of talking that I hear. But not very nice.- Tara Berke Torres

  10. I've heard this is my son's teenage crowd-rude to say the least. Unfortunately, typical of teens
