    Default "In a minute..."

    "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.

    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.

    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

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

    That's terrible "slang."

    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."

    8/23-8/24: FYF Fest
    9/24 - 28: Decibel Festival

    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.

    I did when Pete asked me when I was coming to bed an hour and a 1/2 ago.'"In a minute!"
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    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.
