If one of your New Year's resolutions is to annoy other people during conversation, this little list will come in handy.

On the other hand, if you're trying to cut down on that kind of thing, well, this could be helpful that way, too. I mean, whatever, right?

Marist College in New York  has released its annual poll of most annoying words and phrases. And while my Number One fingernails-on-the-chalk-board phrase remains, "at the end of the day," the top dog for yet another year is "whatever."

Others that Americans have grown really tired of in 2017 include "fake news," "no offense, but," "literally," and "you know what I mean." Feel free to submit any that drive you up the wall and I'll do my best to avoid them while I'm on the air.

No offense, but I literally want to wish you a 2018 free of fake news or whatever, you know what I mean?
