I know, right?


That "right" at the end was something that took a bit of getting used to. My brother-in-law is from Connecticut and they use that there quite a lot while in Chicago area (where I'd just moved from when I'd met him) it wasn't used in that way. I want to say that "don't you think?" was used more but it was a while ago and I can not recall.

In the area of Florida I lived, we had quite a few Canadians, Michiganders and other folks up along the border regions for a good 6 months or so of the year... it is not too uncommon to run into folks with a habit of using "eh?" there.
"don't you think?" is kinda long. Cannot be snapped out like eh, right?
