Whatever voted most annoying word

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 New Millennium

Whatever voted most annoying word in conversation in a Marist College Poll.  The next five most annoying words or phrases were:

  •  "you know"
  •  "it is what it is"
  •  "anyway"
  •  "at the end of the day".

Personally I find "you know" inserted after every other word to be way more annoying than "whatever".

What words or phrases annoy you?

Hi StaceyAnn,   You know, not much really bothers me. Anyway, I'm just happy to have people talk to me, at the end of the day, that's what really counts. I don't like it when my husband says- it is what it is - but whatever!  :-)

Actually the word that bothers me the most is "Actually"  :-)

Umm I Umm Anyway Umm You know Umm.  LOL I think the one that bothers me most is the word F*** inserted every other word.  Too many people use it like an adjective or an adverb( F***in') today. I could really do without it.

"...it's your move."

The word "ok, a few inserts of this into a conversation is "ok", but after a while it seems that they are not really listeing to me, only injecting it after each point made to pretend to be attentive.
