    Don't feel that you have to fill every second with words when speaking with someone.

    OK, you know, and so . . . . can be very irritating, especially when repeated several times.


    Just smile. If there is a long pause, you might want to ask, "Was I clear to you?" or "Is that understandable?"

    Irritating puts it mildly. Tony Blair kept on saying "Look, ..." - at least we don't have to listen to that all the time.

    Fillers should be avoided!
