An annual Marist College poll has once again revealed the Most Annoying Word of the Year.
Ironically, the most annoying year with the most annoying election resulted in the most annoying word of all time.
It’s the most annoying (word) time of the year! Once again, “whatever” claims the title of most annoying word or phrase used in casual conversation.
“Whatever” irritates 38% of Americans followed by “no offense, but” with 20%. “You know, right” is irksome to 14% of residents nationally as is “I can’t even,” 14%. “Huge” grates on the nerves of 8% of Americans, and 5% are unsure.
Whatever is the most annoying word? Ugh, I can’t even… Oh, and by the way, it’s not “huge;” it’s “Yuge!”
