    Hi,

    Please dont roll your eyes.

    What does this sentence mean?

    Is the usage of roll your eyes appropriate?

    Thanks

    Yup, it's appropriate in context, Anupumh. Rolling one's eyes is a dismissive response to what someone else has said. It suggests that what the person said was dumb/stupid/silly, something that doesn't even deserve a response.

    Indeed. Which is why some people do not like this icon.
