It’s the insidious and irritating habit that people have developed that turns a statement into a question.
This habit is VERY easy to pick up……and very HARD to get rid of. You really have to concentrate.
Everybody is doing it……everyone has become infected with this. I think it demonstrates how uncertain people are in this day and age. They can’t even make a statement….or don’t want to.
It’s gotten so bad that I’ve asked someone for their name and they’ve responded ‘Elizabeth?’……lol.
Now that you’re aware of it, it will become obvious when you hear it.
