New level of phoniness

Postby E Irizarry R&B Singer » June 4th, 2014, 6:29 am

Why do Americans do the "eh-hem-hem-hem" clearing throat side like this [after they have a discussion]? It's like they were telling a lie in the first place.
See MP3 link---->

This phenomenon has begun in the last few years.

I can sound "White" when I speak for a prolonged period of time, and I hardly if ever do that pretentious "eh-hem-hem-hem" clearing of the throat.
It's time to expatriate to evade your fate; it's time to expatriate before the barn door permanently closes on "US" sheep.

lol it probably comes from the fact that in america you HAVE to be nice to people even if u don't mean to or want to.... maybe folks do this without being aware showing their true feelings "body language speaks more than words" (i also n noticed americans tend to greet others like "OMGGGGGGG HOW ARE YOUUUUUUU!!!!!) but in reality they don't really care about seeing you.

I have never encountered that, but if I were to venture a guess, it could be simply releasing nervous tension or legitimately clearing their throats.

I would not read too much into it.
