An Actual Conversation Between Actual Teenagers Actually Speaking: A Cry for Help

Person 1: Hey.

Person 2: Hey.

Person 1: Would you like to go to the mall?

Person 2: No.

Person 1: Oh. Okay.

Person 2: Yeah. I gotta go.

Person 1: Alright. See ya.

Person 2: Yeah. Bye.

(Dear Reader: This is an actual recorded conversation between two teenagers. My research has shown that it represents, with sparse variation, approximately 85% of all conversations between teenagers in America. Please help our teenagers realize that they can also talk about many other things - like going to the store or to the parking lot of the nearest fast food restaurant. It's in your hands, America. Please don't fail our teenagers in this way.)
