It's just with all the stories you hear?? ——I'm sorry I scared you ——It's ok. It's just with all the stories you hear. Could you please tell me what does the second sentence mean? is it a slang?The man(the first person) helped the woman(the second person) fix her car, but the car hood suddenly hit the man’s head. The woman scared and asked the man if he got hurt. Then the man said"I'm sorry I scared you" and the woman said "It's ok. It's just with all the stories you hear"

I wouldn't say it's slang but it's a bit of an incomplete thought. The second person using 'you' in a general context. So the first person obviously did something or said something that reminded the second person of a story they had heard. The second person is giving a reason for being scared, which is that they'd heard scary stories about things happening to people. Without more context it's a bit difficult to explain more. Hope that helps, Andrew
