when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”
i think it’s really interesting and cool actually that language has shifted so that ‘said’ implies that you’re quoting, while ‘was like’ means ‘i’m doing a general impression of this dude’. i mean you can’t really harsh on someone when ‘she was like aaah!’ means exactly that, doesn’t it? she was doing something very similar to the particular scream being made. so, ‘like’ indicates that you’re dealing with generalities and inexact terms, and want to convey the gist of things rather than focussing on exact phrasing and technical details—which is pretty great for young people, who are still developing cognitively and thus not always great at stringing a coherent sentence together.
and then there’s “was all”, which tends to indicate a parody or exaggeration, or an even looser impression.
she said: “I know I’ve filed these for you before, but it’s really not part of my job duties and I’m very busy today.”
she was like: “done filing your paperwork, not my department, do it yourself.”
she was all: “shyeah, no.”
i am all in favor of flexibility in language and i think this is fantastic.
I remember trying to explain this to my dad in like the third grade and YOU EXPLAIN IT SO MUCH BETTER THANK YOU.

"Everybody knows that everybody dies. But not every day. Not today. Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and the Doctor comes to call, everybody lives." —River Song

Anon hate from the late 1800’s.
tell white men they look too serious
tell them to smile
tell them if they don’t want to get made fun of they should have thought of that before they left their house
tell them girls will be girls anytime they complain about our behavior
yawn dramatically when they talk
walk away from them mid-sentence
anytime they come to a decision that concerns only them, make sure they’ve really thought about from all angles. Play devils advocate.
interrogate them on all their choices, demand answers! demand justifications!
take up the whole sidewalk and make them walk around you
explain obvious things to them. speak slowly and enunciate.
feign kindness and then yell at them if they don’t give you money in return. tell them they owe you.
trip them and then yell at them when they get mad about it
tell them how cute they are when they’re angry
tell them to stop being so emotional
tell them to learn how to take a joke
tell them they’re a kill joy
