Most commonly used English words in daily lingo

I believe words were created so that people could communicate comfortably. But God only knows when we evolved to use English words to add 'style' / personal touch to our daily lingo. Unknowingly, many of us have picked up this habit of starting / ending our sentences with a couple of English words.  How often have you come across these kinds:

Girl 1: Arre, he's so cute you know. He actually picked up the books I dropped. I was so happy yaar you know. And then he smiled... you know... smiled at me... wow!!!

Girl 2: Arre, he's so cute... like so cute yaar!!! He actually picked up the books I dropped... like... I was so happy. And then he smiled... like... smiled at me... I felt like wow!!!

Girl 3: So... he's actually very cute. So that day he actually picked up the books I dropped. I was so happy man. Then he smiled... so ya that's it... wow!!!

Girl 4: I mean... he's so cute. He actually picked up the books I dropped. I mean... I was so happy yaar. And then he smiled... I mean... smiled at me... wow!!!

So... let me tell you this lingo is so addictive, I mean, you know...like really addictive!

How about: "And I was like... and he was like, then I said... and he was like 'nah, I don't think so'."
Here is another one: "I'm like hungry, but not really." How can you be "like hungry"? Either you are hungry or you are not.

I am still well-annoyed by people who use these words in their lingo - even some professors of mine do!
