  2. 2 When they say "God forgive me oooh"


    What they actually mean: I’m gossiping and I want to say something very terrible about this person but I also don’t want to be seen as a terrible person, therefore, I must ask for the forgiveness of God before I say it.



  3. 3 When they say "You are smart ooh"


    What they actually mean: All my life, I’ve always thought you were really, super stupid just by looking at you. You have done something to prove me wrong.
