A lot of the times when we are having conversations, we might get annoyed of certain phrases or words. It’s not like we don’t like the person we are talking to, but they just say stuff in certain ways that just tick you off. For the past five years, the word “whatever” has been ranked the most annoying word in people’s conversations.
“Whatever” is a way to show that you don’t care what the other person is saying? Sometimes your friend might be saying a very exciting story, and then asks for your opinion. If you say “whatever” then that’s like telling them that you did not listen nor care about that story. You have just treated them like garbage. If you were a true friend you would have at least commented about it. A lot of the times we don’t realize what we say is something very offensive to people, when it really is.
People in general now days are not good at conversing one on one in person. Maybe it’s because they are so used to texting on their phone or any other social networking website. However they need to learn, for it is necessary when doing job or college interviews. Maybe this is the reason why people fail to find public speaking interesting.
