Worst Slang Terms Californians' Often Use

THC13
My first "worst" list and I'm going to make it about something I'm guilty of; "California lingo".
I've lived in three other states besides California. Everywhere I go people ask, "Your from California huh?" within a few minutes of talking to me. When I ask, "How did you know?" they would say the words and terms I use. They would also say I have a "California accent".(?)


These words and terms originated or are used alot by Californians'. Which one get on your nerves the most? Please try to keep it good spirited. Thanks everyone.

10 You Guys

I realize a lot of people from all over the country say this. I'm adding it cause when I was living in Texas they all said I talked like a homosexual because I would say "you guys" instead of "y'all". I thought it was funny. - THC13
