It’s like, whatver

ANNOYING WORDS

(AP) — What word or phrase do Americans find most
annoying when used in conversations?
It’s, like, “whatever.”
The popular slacker term of indifference was found “most
annoying in conversation” by 47 percent of American adults
surveyed in a Marist College poll released Wednesday.
“Whatever” easily beat out “you know.” The other annoying
contenders were “anyway,” “it is what it is” and “at the end
of the day.”
“Whatever” is an expression with staying power. Immortalized
in song by Nirvana in 1991, popularized by the Valley girls in
“Clueless” later that decade, it is still commonly used, often by
younger people.
Pollsters at the Poughkeepsie, N.Y. college surveyed 938 U.S.
adults by telephone. The margin of error is 3.2 percentage points.
Whatever.
