"Whatever" Is Most Annoying Word

For the fourth year in a row, Americans say “whatever” is the most annoying word or phrase in conversation. More than 32 percent of people polled by Marist have this view while "like” irritates 21 percent of residents nationally. “You know” came in at 17 percent and 10 percent of respondents would like to see “just sayin’” banned.
