Just asked my teenage niece, she said ‘meh’. Seems that is the new ‘okay’.

No that's oldskool now and in any case is more a non-response.



THIS IS BEING AGGRESSIVE


This isn't, OK?


- OK!

I didn't post that using okay (in whatever variation) counts as aggressive, but that writing in ALL CAPS is considered to be the equivalent of shouting at someone, and as such, aggressive.

Therefore, someone who wanted not to be considered aggressive might prefer to avoid the capital letter version "OK".
Doropfiz, it'd be nice if you would grant me that I have at least two braincells left to rub together!
The caps things is well known and old as the internet itself......

So for clarification..... neither me nor my offspring consider OK written like that as aggressive.

Re: Okeee, Okey, or OK: Swiss-style

Mostly saw "okay"


"OK" is a bit passive-agressive, yeah.
