The Worst

adjective; zero derivation
A way to refer to any event, person, or thing which a person finds annoying
 
It demonstrates amelioration from meaning “the superlative of bad” to merely “annoying.” The phrase itself is said after a brief pause and a slower pace than the rest of the sentence. “The” is typically pronounced as “da”. For example, typical usage would be, “John is…the worst.”
Source : During O-week, my advisor would use the worst quite often. When we’d talk about something any of us found annoying, she’d say, “That’s the worst.”
