Most annoying word?

Poughkeepsie, NY, A poll by Marist College found that the most annoying word or phrase used in casual conversation in America is “whatever.” The poll indicates the word irritates 38 percent of Americans.

The pollsters offered up five options for most annoying word of phrase: “whatever,” “no offense, but,” “you know, right,” I can’t even,” and “huge.”

In second place? “No offense, but” with 20 percent. Third place went to two phrases that tied: “you know, right,” and “I can’t even.” In each case, 14 percent of Americans found the phrase irksome. In last place, with 8 percent, was the word “huge.”

Last year “whatever” took first place with 43 percent. Also, age maters. Americans under 30 years old found “I can’t even” to be the most annoying word or phrase for whatever reason.
