The Sound of a Frog


Have you noticed that young ladies (18-26) talk in the form of a question when what they're saying isn't even a question? It's as if they aren't sure of their statement? No matter how inconsequential the statement may be, the tone or canter of the speech is always in the form of a question? Maybe they're practicing for Jeopardy? Maybe their insecurity is showing? Maybe they are seeking approval? No matter - it's annoying? To make matters worse, they speak like Froggy? No soft spoken maiden like voices? Their voice is gravelly and rough just like old Froggy from the Little Rascals? You may notice the pattern and become annoyed like me?
Note: This was very difficult for me to end each sentence with a question mark.
2nd Note: There used to be a bar in Pumpkin Center, California named Froggy's. It was thought to be owned by Froggy. However, Billy "Froggy" Laughlin died on August 31, 1948, when a bus hit him from behind whilst riding a motor scooter in La Puenta, California. He was killed instantly.

they talk like everything needs to be validated.

Good point. That's exactly it. I've never noticed this annoyance from males.

Our daughters teacher talks with that inflection to her voice. The validation cause seems possible since she is young.

Young men don't do that question thing, they just pronounce words incorrectly.

They are just too lazy to finish their words/statements.
