Not on the list, but it drives me CRAZY when people say something is “so addicting.” NO IT’S NOT, IT’S ADDICTIVE!!! Ok, end rant.

“Literally” (but then again I sometimes am guilty of using this wrong).

“Should of”. NO. It’s SHOULD HAVE!!

Bahaha. My fiance wants to punch everyone who uses ‘ginormous.’

 

He also hates the media for popularizing ‘staycation’

Nauseous means to cause nausea. If you’re sick, you’re nauseated.” 

OOPS! I feel stupid now :/ English isn’t my first language though, can I get a free pass, please?

It’s not so much that the words bother me, but the fact that so many people are oblivious that they are incorrect. 

-alot

-per say

-Febuary (this one bothers me because my birth month is FebRuary and it seems as though 60% of people don’t know this month exists).

@MsMeow:  I think it means both? Or saying I am nauseous is correct, but I feel nauseous is not. I just googled Nauseous and the definition given was:

nau·seous  

/ˈnôSHəs/
Adjective

    1. Affected with nausea; inclined to vomit.
    2. Causing nausea; offensive to the taste or smell.

    @IzzyBear:  OH! I have two! Disorientated, and when people use “Voila” but say woala, wala, walla… IT”S FRENCH!

     

    Also… I didn’t know nauseous isn’t a word. Ande I think the person that wrote this is wrong on the incorrect use of Random. Weird, DOES mean essentially the same thing, mis guided, without direction, etc
