Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

I've only heard it in the joking phrase: "Make me a sammich, woman!" I never thought that people actually used that word outside of that phrase though, and I hope no one uses it in that demeaning way either.

Sammich is part of the Black Vernacular so thatís where that originated.

Is that a fact or a guess?

Occasionally I like looking into the origins of words and will research their etymology. When I saw your post, I wanted to learn more. All I could find is that it originated in the 1940s.

If you have a link that shows what you're saying is true, I'd love to read more.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

When people do not smile in pictures, especially sports-related pictures. I am guilty of it when I was in high school sports and had I stayed in school, I would have done it in my college football picture.. but I wish I would have smiled all the way back when.

I think the modern usage of it became a thing in mid 2000s message board lingo. It's from the same generation as "wait..what," "I can haz?" and stupid **** like that. Basically talking from the point of view of a cat meme.

People used it before, but not as much as in the past 10 years or so.

People dont always like their smile or just smile "weird".


You'd rather just have your normal face looking at a camera than a face you dont know exactly how it'll look/turn out.

It doesn't help when the photographer badgers people to smile more even if they're already smiling.
