Forget cursing words, this word has won the title of the ‘most annoying word in the world’.
According to an annual survey by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, the word ‘whatever’ is the most annoying word to hear. Nearly four in ten adults named “whatever” as the most annoying verbal filler in casual conversation.
For the words ‘like’ and ‘you know’, one in five adults found them annoying.
This is the third year in a row that the word ‘whatever’ has been named the most annoying word.
“Just sayin’” and “seriously” were more forgiving to the ears, though still quite irritating.
