Feeling left out or completely lost in social conversations because you're completely clueless with what 'bae' and 'totes' means? There's no need to fuss anymore.
Listeners on 702 and Cape Talk listeners speak to Phemelo Ngcobo (standing in for Azania Mosaka and Pippa Hudson) about words and phrases they need to add to their 'cool lexicon'.
Listen to the conversation below:
Totes. Just say totally. Totally is already slang now you want to drop a few letters. Come now really.— Glen, caller on 702
Sure bra I'm straight. I was so confused by that phrase that I asked my son if his friend was asking if he's gay.— Primrose, administrator at 702
I'm still trying to figure out what umfleek means. What does that mean? All I'm saying is somebody could be having a conversation in front of you and you wouldn't be any wiser.— Aubrey Masango, 702 and Cape Talk presenter
