Absolutely

Notice how ubiquitous the word "absolutely" has become?

Absolutely.

It has become a substitute for certainly, yes, very much so, truly, indeed, without a doubt, yes, of course, undoubtedly, unquestionably, emphatically, unequivocally, yes, heartily, infinitely, assuredly, yes.

It kind of annoys me.

Words have become less meaningful, despite the age of communication in which we live. Sad isn't it? Absolutely

"I agree" is fine. Or you could substitute "Amen" which is a response uttered in agreement...
