A phrase used to berate or lecture multiple people at once. The person speaking the phrase is often angry and upset. The individual does not know whom or where to direct his/her anger so the individual directs it at an often innocent, larger audience. This is commonly exhibited in the workplace. The verb for this phrase is "YG'd"
"You guys I do all the work around here!" "You guys didn't tell me about the meeting!" "Work sucked today. I got YG'd" "Dude, I got YG'd while you were at lunch." "She is always YG’ing me."

This term is used to reduce the awkwardness that the less-educated among us have with the fact that the singular and plural form of "you" in English is the same. It is used by restaurant hosts/hostesses and servers relentlessly. A particularly vulgar aberration of an already bad-enough term would be to say "yous guys", which is often heard in Long Island. And then, there is the Southern aberration, "y'all" - an example of Southerns' unfamiliarity with the English language.
"Welcome to Applbee's; would you guys like something to drink?"

Proof of America's sexist bias. Although it's obviously designed to address the male sex, this phrase is used just as often by girls between girls.
After leaving band class every day, I would always hear the same group of girls address one another: "hey, you guys, listen." I find it ironic there was not a single guy in their midst.
