“Really? No, really?”
And it’s closely related cousin…
“Seriously? I mean, seriously.”
In the past three months I’ve caught dozens of people from many different subcultures using it, meaning it has filtered into the mainstream. Even a recurring bit on SNL is titled “Really?”
It’s time to find another way to express your incredulity. Some possible alternatives:
“What an unexpected turn of events.”
“I’m very disappointed with that outcome.”
