Kaybye

blending; interjection
A particularly emphatic informal dismissal/farewell.
 
It is based in its composition on the word “goodbye” but is intended to be harsh or dismissive, rather than pleasant. (Often accompanied by the physical movement of turning on one’s heel)
Etymology : A blending of “okay” and “goodbye. “Goodbye” merely indicates a farewell, but the use of “okay” adds extra emphasis to the word.Likely originates from the use of the phrase, “Okay, bye,” and then the subsequent shortening of that phrase into one word.
Source : A conversation with a friend, August 2011. “So I said, okay, I’ll go to Screw, but if I check him out and he’s a freak, kaybye!” “I want to come with you, but I have a test to study for.” “Kaybye!”
