      In the country regions instead of saying, "How may I help you?" or "What can I do for you?" they say, "What can I do you for?" So grammatically incorrect....

    It drives me nuts when people say, "You know what I'm saying" or "You know what I mean" after everything that they say.

    or the girls that say

    "Ohhhh...God, I HATE MY LIFE", because they broke a nail or something equally as insignificant happens.

    One word that drives me crazy is "Tolerance"

    "I do not like you yet I will have tolerance for you."

    BS

    Acceptance is a much better word.

    "Literidiocy."

    The fact that idiots are really literate enough to read doesn't make them any less an idiot.

    #1: It's a phrase:: "Know what I'm say'n"?...No actually I have now idea what you're saying? And most likely you don't either!

    #2 A word: I am not allowed to use here in the forums I don't think?? C*nt...rhymes with hunt. A particularly vile word when used in a derogatory way I think.

      I hate that word too and also the word that rhymes with maggot that they use at people like me, i get completely mad at people who call me that, I got expelled from school years ago because some one called me it everyday and i lost my temper and had a fight.

    improper use of "insure" and "ensure"

    improper use of "affect" and "effect"

    "has ran" instead of "ran" - I have no idea why people make that passive so often.
