i Know, right?!

And this next thing? This bothers me so. Where does this thing come from? See example below. (My voice is in blue).

Hot damn, that pie tastes good!

I KNOW, RIGHT?!

Yeah, right. I just said it.

Now, sans voice, this is really hard to explain, however it’s everywhere. People here at work do it after every comment. I just wonder where the ‘trend’ came from, if any one place. Or if it’s just a thing people do like “FACE!” or “I like pie, yo!” or “I know you are but what am I” (that has a direct relation to Pee Wee—I know) or whatever. But where does this one come from? I know, right? (I hope someone gets this, otherwise I sound deranged).

  1. I always thought it was a Jersey thing. My friend Justin (who is British) constantly makes fun of my accent, and when he’s mocking me, he ends every sentence with “RIGHT?”

  3. is “i know, right” the same as “yeah, it is!”?
    cause i like saying “yeah it is” as a joke. i used to work w/ a kid that said: “yeah, it is” and “right?” after every statement you made to him. i think it might be the same thing as “i know, right?”, but maybe i ma thinking of it incorrectly.
