MessageSujet: Comment traduire "whatever"?   Ven 16 Mar - 13:39

Bonjour Very Happy Very Happy

Je regarde pas mal de films américains en VO et le mot "whatever" revient souvent. J'ai beau regarder dans différents dictionnaires mais je ne trouve pas le même genre de phrase que celle qui me fait interroger.

Comment est-ce que vous traduiriez la phrase suivante:

"we'll be out in 2 min"
"Ok, whatever"

Je pense qu'on peut dire: "D'accord, pas de souci", ou "aucun problème"

Qu'est-ce que vous en pensez?

Merci pour votre réponse
