Maybe it’s been a long day, but this expression has me baffled and maybe mmm-miffed.
I called a company to check on an order I placed earlier, and the operator signed off in this weird, but far too popular, way.
“Mmm-bye,” she said.
What’s that? Who puts a big bunch of M’s in “Goodbye”?
Maybe it’s sort of like “Mmm-kay.” And, no, it’s not OK. Not even mmm-maybe.
Mumbai is a city in India. It used to be called Bombay. It’s not a pat answer or telephone sign-off.
Mmm-no. It’s not mmm-kay. So let’s just mmm-stop it, before I have to mmm-have-a-fit.
Can I get an mmm-amen?
