These Are 2017's Most Annoying Words/Phrases

No offense, but you literally need to stop saying "whatever," you know what I mean? I pretty much just wrote the most annoying sentence of 2017 there... 

On Monday, Marist University unveiled its annual poll ranking the most annoying words or phrases in America. 

The winner in 2017, for the ninth consecutive year, was "whatever." 

A new addition to this year's top five was "fake news" (which, ironically, some lovers of the term will probably dub "fake news"). 

Following are the year's five most annoying words, along with the percentage of respondents whom they rankled the most:

  • "Whatever," 33 percent
  • "Fake news," 23 percent
  • "No offense, but," 20 percent
  • "Literally," 11 percent
  • "You know what I mean," 10 percent
