So what? Eh? Oh, yes, sorry............
It's just one of those annoying things : what does 'he went, like,' mean, especially when left hanging in the air with no follow-up, verbal or visual. Generally, I think the poster above who said it's a ploy to avoid having to give a yes or no answer has it about right. Gives the inarticulate time to think, as in 'like', 'you know', 'er' , 'um' etc.
So, that's settled then!
Yesterday today was tomorrow. Don't dilly dally!
