LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — What are the most annoying words of 2012?

According to an annual poll by Marist College in New York, “Whatever” tops the list for the fourth straight year.

Thirty-two percent of adults polled said they can’t, like, stand the word!

Next on the list? You guessed it: “Like” with 21 percent of the poll. That was followed by “Just Sayin’” and “You Know”.

Some other words that also made the list include “Twitterverse” and “Gotcha”.
