Like IKR


I recently found out that this stands for "I Know, Right?".

I think this is an odd expression, when the person claiming to know asks if s/he indeed knows in the same few words. Or does this signify the insecurity of the famed 'next generation'?

Perhaps I'm too odd/old for modern acronyms and expressions, because I quite often run into several of those that hardly make sense unless they are based on insecurity. One of them is 'like', as in: "So I'm like 'where are you going?' "

There is nothing wrong with "So I asked 'where are you going?' " but clearly that was not the point. Or the exact words were not used ad memory fails so the speaker asked "something like" that?
