I was like reading that article all about the most ann...WHATEVER!

Whatever? Fine.
 
2013-12-20 05:59:28 AM
Whatevs.

I just wanted to make sure that I hadn't imagined it, and that saying whatevs is a thing, so I googled it, and this is the UD entry, made me lol.

1. whatevs
whatever, but for cool people
Tom Cruise: "You are such a whore"
Queen of England: "Whatevs"
Tom = Pwned


I was going to suggest 'whatevs' trumps 'whatever', but on the strength of that 'whatevs' is clearly superior.

It is what it is.

I've come to hate that phrase as it is the grownup why of saying whatever.

"Hashtag" is clearly more annoying.

Now "preggers". That makes me want to commit genocide.

Whatever.

My best friend and his wife have even developed a hand signal for whatever so you can say whatever without saying whatever.

Whatever.

"I suppose" - I didn't always hate it until worked with an arse who always said it when the answer should be either yes or no. Same arse would also say "artisan" "crafted" "solution" "really" and other BS.

I would play buzz word bingo at any meeting with him...

That could work too but they go with three fingers in one hand and you hold em up palm out (W) then swing em in toward you (E).

Totes magotes.
 
2013-12-20 08:59:14 AM
Basically.  Everytime I hear somebody utter that word, it's basically just filler that basically gives the user the appearance of basically being an articulate and erudite English speaker.  Basically, I want to basically grab the speaker by both ears and basically rip their heads off and away from their shoulders and basically piss down their windpipe.  That would render them basically incapable of basically ever using the word again.

Don't get me started on frankly or honestly -- whatever.

"My bad."


While this doesn't particularly annoy me in itself, it has absolutely NO PLACE in a work environment.

"My bad" is something you say when you threw out your roommate's leftover half of Five Dollar Footlong in the fridge they were planning on eating later.  It's not something you say when you make a workplace mistake -- no matter how small.

Agree.  When a mistake gets made in my workplace, the phrase that automatically trips from my lips is, "your bad."

I went down to the beach and saw Kiki. She was like, "All eh." And I was like, "Whatever".
 
2013-12-20 09:09:52 AM
I'm with the author. "Whatever" is dismissive and contemptuous. You really can't make a worse reply to something someone says than dismissing them contemptuously.

I beg to differ, you could just stab them in the face.  That would be a lot worse.

State_College_Arsonist: "Conversate."

Ugh.


these^
i'm fine with "whatever" to an extent, and use it myself. usually to force an abrupt end to an annoying argument (that i probably annoyingly started out of boredom).

"totes" (and similar crap)...for some reason just stabs me directly in the earbuds. my 13 year old daughter began saying this a year or so ago...i told her she needs to refrain from saying that around me, especially directly to me. i am all for slang, and have grown up embracing slang, but "totes" makes her sound like a tard.

and "conversate" and any other "look-at-me-i'm-trying-to-sound-smart" bastardized words only serve to make the speaker sound stupid. "converse" is a word with fewer syllables, sounds more "intelligent" than something like "talked to/with", and is correct.

"My bad" annoys the crap out of me. I never could understand why it even became a thing so many people say. FFS the word "bad" is not a noun!

"Whatever" is annoying and dismissive but "my bad" is stupid.

"my bad" annoyed me, at first, as a general urban slang term. "i'm sorry" or "i apologize" or something along those lines would suffice. but, as long as it was JUST a general slang used amongst people who knew each other...whatever, i became ok with it.

then it spread. and it irritates the bejeebus out of me. and the fact that people STILL use it, despite the trend of sagging pants being in decline, makes it even more annoying.

30 years ago we used to say "Whatever, man", I didn't realize how much time we wasted. We could have just said "Whatevs"

I'd like to offer a different perspective on this word.  I have instructed my 9yr old daughter to use it in response to any kind of taunt from other kids.  Rather than fire back at them with other insults and potentially escalate the situation, she basically dismisses them with a shrug.  It's her version of "don't feed the trolls."  In this case it works very well.

"I don't like you!"
"Whatever"

"Nyah nyah nayh"
"Whatever"

yes! quite appropriate usage!
annoying? only to the person who was doing the taunting. because they have just been shunned...unable to get the satisfaction of getting someone upset with their words/actions
