So like I use so as a connector to you know break up the predicate of a run on sentence into like multiple sentences which I am prone to write when I am thinking through how to write a comprehensive answer while I am actually already typing it in response to you know a question that has like many facets and I'm looking for ways to like totally help the person when I'm not sure which facet of the answer is most important to them and inspired the original question.
Okay so you know I might like otherwise say therefore but I'm thinking that word is sometimes totally inappropriate and so therefore I start the sentence with so instead?
So you know I like totally hate mayonnaise but I like totally like Maynard.
I so hadn't noticed this on Shark Tank until you like just pointed it out (so see how I totally switched so away from the first word? That use of so grinds on my brain sometimes). So I would use so in response to questions from Mr Wonderful because his questions like almost always include you know a totally belligerent assertion and so then using so as the first word in a response is like a way to (1) lower the drama and like defuse the assertion and [B] you know like respond to the assertion without totally acknowledging it.
So you know sometimes it totally helps to put like an okay in front of the so.
Okay so like that's about all I got on this topic.
You know I am so like going to totally stop typing now.
I think it's a bad spoken speech habit, sort of like saying "uh" in order to fill up an uncomfortable blank space while trying to think up the next thing to say. It's particularly bad on TV and radio news where you abhor dead air and don't want to give your opponent a chance to break in.
From there, this bad habit has leaked into written speech as well.
Just think how bad things are going to get when speech to text becomes even more common. It's already bad enough with all the glitches autocorrect causes.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
Unfortunately, the use of "So" has become as common as receiving the response of "No problem" instead of a reply of "Your Welcome" after you have said "Thank You" .
