I dont know why I don’t like “sup”. Ok, that is not true because I wouldn’t be blogging about it if I didn’t know why.
I don’t like “sup” because it is overused. Overused so much that it has lost its meaning. People use “sup” as if to say hello, hi, goodmorning and all the pleasantries which might not even be necessary in the first place.
Sup is from the usual black american slang, “What’s up?” which means what is going on with you?, what’s new with you? , what are you up to? or even how are you?. Something that comes with the Human being package is that, we love to short-phrase everything so we managed to break down these three words to three letters “Sup”. That is where the problem begun. We have forgotten what it used to mean. I am beginning to think that people think “sup” is an introduction of some sort. So when they say “sup”, they have also said something like “I am Kwame Atoapem from Africa. I studied zoology and dondology”. That’s too much of a shortcut,don’t you think so? All these words into a single three letter word, “Sup”? Come on!
Because I don’t see why you will meet a stranger whom you’d want to befriend and say “sup” as the first thing! Really?! You walk up to a stranger and ask what are you up to?, what’s new with you?. That’s weird. The polite thing to do is to at least introduce yourself. That’s manners, that’s courtesy and it’s……nice. The inappropriate use of “sup” is sometimes just weird and gross. I get it, its no grammar…it’s only a slang but chale… I beg! It is just wrong!
So guys, who do not get why they always get ghetto girls and never polished girls, check your introduction…”sup” is simply weird. Be a gentleman and at least introduce yourself and that fine chick will fall head over heels for you. Say that right thing…african-american-nigerian-ghanaian-everybody-hispanic slangers!
Love y’all peace out!
