"Y'all" is a brilliant use of the English language and i refuse to be told otherwise

I'm British, from a small town in the middle of England, nobody EVER says "Y'all" here and i don't get why. When i first heard the word i thought it was stupid, but the older i get the more and more i realise how much i would easily use "Y'all" in every day life. I'm a manager in my office so i often have to refer to multiple people at a time, "You all" or "You lot" or "All of you" is fine for now but can come off quite harsh, i've now rotated "Y'all" into the mix and it just FITS so well. Its soft, comes out friendly. Everyone knows what i mean, it rolls off the tongue nicely and i get to put that sweet southern accent on when i say it. I think we should all adapt to it because honestly, it works. submitted by /u/Lordflump to r/unpopularopinion [link] [comments]
