Most annoying word is "whatever"

According to The Marist Poll, "whatever" tops the list of annoying words or phrases.

39 per cent of those polled were most irritated by the oft-used "whatever", while 28 per cent found the term "like" the most offensive.

The over used "you know what I mean?" was ranked third by 15 per cent of those polled, followed by 10 per cent who were most annoyed by the phrase "to tell you the truth".

I was asked if I agreed with the most annoying words and phrases. My response was, "whatever, to tell you the truth, if you know what I mean"… oops, sorry.
