I only just heard this for the first time this weekend but I heard it no less than 7 times from 4 different people. But here is an example


i hadnt smoked cali weed in a minute and i smoked a ton in the 'lab and went to sleigh bells. jesus christ that was waay too much. sounded like chainsaws on metal. Gobi speakers were way too loud. had to go back to the lab to regain my senses. that was nuts.
anyone else think sleigh bells was crazy loud?

Even stupider to make it the subject of a thread.

It's been a minute since i've seen a thread this stupid.

I mean that in the literal sense of course, this board being what it is.

"hella" is a good type of slang to use, but "in a minute" is stupid.

whatever, as long as the word "hot" doesn't precede "minute". that phrase is really annoying to me.

No one says this.

No one.

I know you provided an example, but no.

the phrase isn't "in a minute." "a minute" has had a slang meaning for really any length of time but particularly a long period of time for about a decade now.

No one in my limited circle of white suburban friends says this.

I think it's "just a sec"

In a minute= "I haven't seen jim in a minute"=a long period of time.

I used to use that a lot...
It's nothing to make a thread about...

Not as bad as hella, and i never hear anyone use that in RL

Using it this way makes the user a hot mess.

been a minute since i fixed you.

But, in this case, you literally mean it's been a minute.

That's terrible "slang."

"hella" is a good type of slang to use, but "in a minute" is stupid.

It's used like this:

"In a minute, I'm going to slap you so fucking hard for using slang that even most popular high-schoolers realize has been on its way out for a few years."

No one says this.

No one.

I know you provided an example, but no.

I disagree. I heard this phrase no less than 8 times from 4 different people over the course of the last 48 hours. The worst was this guy who I hadn't seen in about 2 years and he sees me and says, "Hey man! I haven't seen you in a minute!" and I just felt like he had stabbed my soul with a knife.

Pssst, I'll tell you in a minute...

I heard this phrase a lot when I was in Virginia. I was driving somewhere on the freeway and my friend was giving me directions and said, "You're gonna turn right in a minute..." so of course I immediately start trying to get into the right lane and was looking at exit signs and then she said, "Oh no! I mean like in a long minute. A long while. About 20 more minutes." That is fucking confusing.

i most usually hear it used in the past tense, like when you see someone you haven't seen in a while: "DAMN SON, IT'S BEEN A MINUTE"

This is not slang. It's the English language. You should all die.

The title of this thread makes me think of that Nickelodeon commercial way back in the day where they keep saying "in a minute" in a bunch of different voices.
