IM DISCUSSING THIS BECAUSE I SAY IT ALL THE TIME $# JTNJ#TYGN45
The reason I hate this phrase is because no one uses it correctly. People generally use it in order to dismiss the fact that they don’t know what they’re talking about. For example:
Person 1: “I saw you at Kroger yesterday.”
Person 2: “You mean Wal-Mart?”
Person 1: “Same difference.”
What would that difference be? The fact that you can’t remember which store you were in yesterday, or are to much of a jackass to say, “My mistake, Wal-Mart”?
Correct usage of this phrase would be something like the following:
Person 1: “The boy’s head is upside down.”
Person 2: “So is that boy’s over there.”
Person 3: “Same difference.”
An odd choice, to be sure, but it was the only example I could think of to illustrate the fact that with the subject in question, there was in fact a difference (i.e. something against the norm), and that because they were actually comparing the exact SAME DIFFERENCE, this is a great example of where the phrase is used correctly.
“Same difference” should never be used to dismiss one’s own idiocy.
I realize I used the wrong spelling of “too.”
THIS IS THE MOST RETARDED THING EVER SAID!!!
hmmm… i say this all the time what does it mean though???
my most used “saying” I just love it and it cracks people up when I do. they sometimes say it before I do because I have become predictable with it. Actually it makes alot of sense when you analize the true meaning of it.
it means… you're discussing 2 different things with a lot of similarities between them…sort of
except less incestious
this is the most awsomes word ever
