The Daily Mail:
'You know,' 'whatever' is a really annoying term -- 'like' 'you know.' We're 'just sayin'.'
When it comes to the most annoying words or phrases used in conversation, those four top the list in 2012, according to the annual Marist Poll.
'Whatever' headed the list, cited by 32 per cent of adults, and next came 'like,' which 21 per cent didn't like.
Runners-up included 'Twitterverse' and 'gotcha.'
The results mirrored last year's survey when 'whatever' topped the annoying words list for a third straight year.
