Subject: RE: BS: Rant... why don't people speak properly?
"uptalk" is often born of uncertaintly. By turning a sentence into a question, the teenager is checking in with you, to make sure you are listening and that you understand what she is saying.

Be human. Make eye contact and let her know you are interested in what she has to say. That is, unless you are the kind of person that's glued to your electronic device. In which case, what are you doing on this thread?
