Today’s expression is: So what?

Meaning: used to show that you think that something is not important, especially after someone has criticized you for it.

Example 1:
I know that she is fifteen years younger than her husband. So what?

So what if nobody else agrees with us? If we believe in this strategic plan, I think we should try to convince the Board of Directors.
