What does 'yep' mean, exactly?
Q: What does 'yep' really mean?
Does it mean "Yes, thank you for telling me, i understand?"
Does it mean "I don't understand a single thing you just said, but I'm polite and you seem to like the sound of your own voice, so please keep going?"
Or does it mean "I already knew that. You've just wasted your breath talking to me. Shut up in future, big nose."

Yep, or yup, depending on where abouts you happen to hail from, means just about anything you want it to. Your three examples are probably the top three forms of usage.
I think that you forgot the following though:
"I hear you talking. I'm not actually listening but I thought that I would fill the empty spaces in your monologue just to keep a flow going. Please do not construe this as meaning that I have agreed to wear a puffy pirate shirt in public."
Inflection is everything.

If your from my neck o'the woods, it is:
Ayuh... (pronounced i - yuh).
Something to do with too many folks from Canada cross-breeding with folks from Maine.

Hey, I thought yep means yes..
the 3th version is really friendfully.
I have got relatives in the USA,and they told me yep means yes.But why did they do it,if its not means yes.Im confused.
You know,I'm from europe,and here in the schools,the teachers talk about just the verbs,and etc,not about "slang"

When I hear "yep," I think the person saying it is an imbecile. Usually uneducated or undisciplined people say yep or more commonly "yep yep yep."
Usually it means they are not listening because their minds are going a million miles per hour contemplating garbage and so the yep is their placeholder in the conversation.
It's also a bit dismissive.

Pretty much a lazy form of "yes".
Maybe could be use just like "Yes, it is" or "Correct", but in a more informal, somewhat lazy way, sometimes a bit sarcastic.
"So, he won the Nobel Peace Prize after sending more soldiers to Afghanistan...?"

I'm having a hard time understanding "yep" when it's not used in an actual conversation.
It bothers me when I hear it from someone walking behind me...I know it's weird...I thought maybe they're in their own thoughts or they have nothing better to say because no one's talking to them in that moment.
What do you think about my situation?
