Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself.
That is one of my new favorite words. Especially since living in the land of the teens.
Then I read this article a few weeks ago and find out that it’s very annoying.
The popular slacker term of indifference was found “most annoying in conversation” by 47 percent of Americans surveyed in a Marist College poll released Wednesday.
Oops. Here we go again being uncool AND annoying. Always a day late and dollar short. Yep, that’s us.
I’m telling you at least once a day, sometimes more often, I get a text message from one of the lovely teens with one word.
They are precious, aren’t they? It always makes me laugh a little. I never really found it annoying. In fact, I find in useful to dish it right back to them on numerous occasions.
“Whatever” easily beat out “you know,” which especially grated a quarter of respondents. The other annoying contenders were “anyway” (at 7 percent), “it is what it is” (11 percent) and “at the end of the day” (2 percent).
I think they left off the most seriously annoying word on their survey. See if you can guess what it is.
Here’s my like take on this like annoying word because like I know annoying like anybody’s business so like I just want to like tell you that I like think there is a much more annoying like word than like whatever.
Did I mention like that I like was a substitute teacher like for the last two years at like one of the biggest high schools like in the country?
Yeah, maybe like I didn’t mention that like on this blog. Because I was sort of like afraid that they might like find out I like have a blog.
Like I am an expert on what is annoying.
And it’s not like…
If we’re going with an annoying phrase vs. a single word which it seems the survey did not distinguish between, my personal fav is…
“Let me be honest”
Always makes me raise my eyebrow and wonder how often the person speaking is dishonest.
Hmmm, food for thought. I love words.
What’s your favorite overused annoying word?
