kurang suka. Berikut ungkapan lain yang bisa digunakan.

Widya : Well, if you are not willing to do that, let me do it for you and everyone
must agree with me!

opinion.
Widya : Yeah, that’s right. You hear that, Ayu?
Nah, apa yang baru saja dikatakan Nur adalah sebuah ekspresi yang menyatakan ketidaksetujuan dan
digunakan dalam situasi tidak formal ketika kamu memberitahu orang lain bahwa kamu sangat tidak
setuju dengan mereka. Kamu berpikir apa yang telah mereka katakan adalah tidak masuk akal (gila).
