Do you use the the slang phrase "Hit me up"?

Asked by rockfan (12803points) June 21st, 2011

I really dislike it, especially when my friends use it on their Facebook statuses. “Hit me up” is definitely a slang phrase I hope goes away.

Your thoughts?

I agree with you.

KateTheGreat's avatar

I personally hate it.

I want to go up to the person and literally hit them up. Hahahahaha.

No, you’re not the only one.

I don’t let it get in the way of me saying “groovy man…slip me some skin”!

Plucky's avatar

No, I do not. I don’t think I know anyone else that uses it either. It’s something I usually only see on television or in movies.

bob_'s avatar

Yes, I use it some times. It does not bother me.

rebbel's avatar

Dunno what it means…..

Michael_Huntington's avatar

@rebbel It means “please contact me via instant messaging, a telephone call, etc”

rebbel's avatar

@Michael_Huntington Aha, i see, thanks for clearing that up for me!

I dislike it less than I once did. I only moderately hate it now.

@Cruiser Far out!
I didn’t know what the phrase meant and I’ve never heard it before now.

Nope. I think people would giggle if I did. I know one lady who calls everyone “babe” now that gets old.

It not as bad as “that’s so gay.”

Hit me up.. as in call me? That’s really stupid… It’s sounds more like Hit me, as in give me a beer. Hit me up kind of sound like sexual in away.. lol. no offense to whoever says it, although i guess some people think its cool.. im just not that person

Tay122's avatar

Well what if i’m telling my boyfriend that is 1 pair of skinny jeans are so gay? well then i guess he probaly is gay… lol

MilkyWay's avatar

@BarnacleBill Oh gosh! Yes. I feel like hitting people when they say that. GA :)

Neizvestnaya's avatar

I hate it no matter what context it’s meant in. A guy once tried a lame way of asking me out by saying, hit me up sometime and whatever I had thought of him before went out the window along with his chances of ever going out with me. Blah.

Tay122's avatar

But truley, i thought hit me up mean throw me a beer or something

DominicX's avatar

I do use it, yes. With pretty much everyone. Except maybe my parents…

“Hit me up some time and we can chill” <—- a phrase I hear hella much on the reg.

Berserker's avatar

Doesn’t bother me, but I’ve never used it. When I want someone to call me, get in contact or whatever, I actually say it pretty normally. I love hook me up though, but that’s something else entirely.

Blueroses's avatar

I prefer “tie me up”, but again that’s an entirely different thing.

woodcutter's avatar

I thought it was doper lingo. So it’s legit?

ucme's avatar

No I don’t, but then I don’t point & stare in wonder at the pretty birds either.

Seelix's avatar

Nope. It’s stupid.

bob_'s avatar

Okay, I don’t get it. Why is it stupid? It’s just an idiomatic expression. How is it different from, say, “what’s up”?

Blueroses's avatar

True @bob_
Nobody takes idioms literally. It’s no different from “shoot me a text” or “drop in and see me”. Wouldn’t it be a dangerous and surprising world if all of our words were taken at face value?

Seelix's avatar

I don’t know why I think it’s stupid. I’m not a big fan of recently-developed slang, I guess. You feel me, Daddy-o?

Blueroses's avatar

I get your drift and catch your vibe.

Berserker's avatar

Wuz goin down up in da hood, homebrew?

bob_'s avatar

They see me rollin’. They hatin’.

ucme's avatar

gimme some skin, you maternal fornicator sonbiatch!

Strauss's avatar

The first time I ever heard the term was one person asking another person to inject him with illicit drugs!
