    And usually when people say, “ooh, tell me more,” they don’t want you to tell them more.

    Axioms don’t include the phrase “almost always”, actually.

    I will have you know that I only “actually” when I can source my claim.

    Not in writing, but in speech, you’ll find people beginning an explanation with “I mean, …”

    That strikes me odd. They do it even if they have not yet said anything that needs clarification. Listen for it, especially in interviews with experts. It seems to happen mostly with the educated, when explaining something to lesser mortals. But I’m not at all certain about that pattern.

    The one that bugs me the most is when people start every answer with the works “So…”

    Any statement beginning with “I know for a fact that …” almost certainly is about something of which the speaker cannot or does not have any factual knowledge. Any statement ending with “Believe me” is almost surely a lie.
