another meaning for عادي

Hi there

Does عادي also mean 'okay'? I've seen it in a meme recently. Shukran <3

In the Levant, Iraq, and Kuwait, it can mean a dismissive "whatever" as well as OK. For example, if someone tells you you're not allowed to do something and you say عادي it basically means whatever.

Beside the meanings mentioned here, sometimes this word is used technically to mean *Default" or the "default setting" of something.
