To think that saying "hash tag" before everything you say is NOT cool?

I went out tonight with dh to a lovely restaurant. A group of 10 23-27 year olds came in rather drunk, one male had a voice like a fog horn and said "hash tag" before every thing he said. Am I getting old and uncool or is that just plain stupid?

Actually saying it aloud?

Go with the flow and get down with the kids you square (the spelling in that was atrociously good, sorry)

AgentZigzag Sun 07-Oct-12 00:21:26

And it was a bit 1960's as well blush

I'm not down with the children.

####Now you must have guessed it would go this way Op grin.
But I've yet to see people saying it out loud.
Yes, plain stupid IMO but I'm not cool.

He was saying it before every thing he said eg: hashtag good wine. Hash tag OMG Sarah looks good tonight.

On Facebook, twitter, MySpace etc it's all good. Actually SAYING it?

So I'm not just getting old then? grin

I came on to say you know how this will go?

It's like when people complain about swearing on here and every reply is



DeepPurple Sun 07-Oct-12 00:27:36

And yes he was saying OMG not oh my god grin

ORANGEgiraffesCantWearGOLD Sun 07-Oct-12 00:28:06

I have never heard anyone say it outloud but have heard people say "smiley face" and "sad face"

DeepPurple Sun 07-Oct-12 00:28:28

I wish I was better at making my mouth do this confused and my eyebrow do this hmm in real life.

AgentZigzag Sun 07-Oct-12 00:32:03

I've used strikethrough from on here talking to DH.

But only with DH because he knows WTF I'm on about.

DeepPurple Sun 07-Oct-12 00:33:11

WTF in front of children is kind of acceptable if you need to get a point across. LOL is not.

GoldPlatedNineDoors Sun 07-Oct-12 00:33:11

I hate it.

I hate it on my TV. I want to watch a programme without Twitter references all over it. Surely it's a form of advertising and a sneaky one at that.

AgentZigzag Sun 07-Oct-12 00:33:57

Yeah Quad, I've used the hmm face grin

Again, and I stress this, only with DH. I'm not a fucking weirdo grin

AgentZigzag Sun 07-Oct-12 00:34:57

I loathe 'what's trending at the moment' <nails down a blackboard>

SneakyNuts Sun 07-Oct-12 00:36:31

I hate all this shite.

And I'm 21.

EmBOOsa Sun 07-Oct-12 00:39:10

I don't think I could have resisted yelling at that bloke! What a twat!
