Rant: Whats the Meaning and Purpose of Meaning and Purpose?

Many theists say that with out god life has no meaning and purpose, we atheists say that with out an afterlife life has more meaning and we make out own purpose, they reply with "but its not objective", we point out that objective meaning and purpose are impossible. Well here is a new question: Whats the meaning and purpose of meaning and purpose? Do happy people give a shit about meaning and purpose? No! Only unhappy people care about it and if happy people don't care about it then maybe its not the lack of meaning and purpose in your life, maybe you are unhappy because your life isn't going well, all that stuff you planned never happened or maybe your just clinically depressed.

What is the point of meaning and purpose? Do they actually give us anything or are they some pseudo-philosophical questions that get way too much attention?
