"Yeah, no." I can no longer tolerate it.
There's a new idiomatic bit of horror taking up residence in the speech of weak thinkers. They do it when they're about to agree with you, I think. They say, "Yeah, no... blah blah blah..." or worse, "No, yeah... blah blah blah." Which is it? Yes or no?! WTF are you trying to say?!
This is the vernacular of tepid ass-kissers and others with nothing on their minds. Please, stop!
It's either yes or no. Not both.
