look up any word, like thot:
 
1.
When someone is talking to you and you don't hear them so you say "What?" and they repeat themselves but you still don't hear them so you say "What?" again and they repeat themselves again but you still don't hear them so you just smile and nod.
"How do you do this math problem?"
"What?"
"How do you do this math problem?"
"What?"
"How do you do this math problem?"
... smile and nod... "Oh, ok..."

Awkward "what?"
