SAL reported last week that students at American University like to say "whatevs." (Today's busy college students, it seems, don't have time for the full version of the antiquated term "whatever.")
Then I noticed that Summer, on The O.C., said "whatevs" in an episode that ran in 2003.
Ha! My decision to watch the show has been vindicated. Clearly, I'm already four years behind the times — I can't afford to fall further behind.
