"Whatever" Is the Most Annoying Word or Phrase for the Fifth Year in a Row

 
Posted December 20th, 2013 @ 5:50am

If you talk like Alicia Silverstone in "Clueless", just a head's up:  Everyone still hates you.

According to an annual poll, the most annoying word or phrase of the year was the word "whatever."  And I'm pretty sure every word in the top five was ALSO said in that movie.  Here they are. 

1.  "Whatever" . . . 38% of us find it annoying, compared to 32% last year.

2.  "Like" . . . 22%.

3.  "You know" . . . 18%.

4.  "Just sayin'" . . . 14%.

5.  "Obviously" . . . which annoys 6% of people, and was the only NEW phrase to make the list this year.  (Last year, number five was "Twitterverse".)
