Like?

As a native speaker of English, I hear the constant misuse overuse of the word "like". Example: "I, like, went to the store and, like, bought some milk."
My question is: does this occur in another language? I don't necessarily mean "like", but a certain word that is arbitrarily inserted into a sentence?

I'm also wondering if there are any German speakers who wouldn't mind being penpals. I've taken several classes and it's actually my university major. I have no one with which to practise and, as a result, have forgotten a lot. I really love the language and don't want to lose any more.

Thanks.

EDIT: I'll own it, I have no evidence that "like" is misused when used this way. It's just an irritant of mine.
