Wathever.  Okay, guy. 

 

And not to waste the coming here, you might use only one exclamation (not three).

It´s a Brazilian feature: to exagerate in punctuations. (maybe Latin language speakers as well).    In fact, there was an author that noticed that some time ago. It´s so Brazilian! You see this happening all the time in chats, what allows you to recognize a Brazilian around.

I hope you take it lightly, it´s only one culture-wise tip.  Americans, for example, don´t usually fall in this trap.
