@melodicsighs1: That reminds me of a birthday card we had at the stationery store I used to work at (which also reminds me: stationary vs. stationery; learn which is which, people).

Girl 1: “Where’s your birthday party at?”

Girl 2: “Don’t end a sentence with a preposition.”

Girl 1: “Fine. Where’s your birthday party at, bitch?”

@linguo42

LOL, that reminds me of the movie With Honors.

Homeless man: “What for”?

Harvard professor: “At Harvard we don’t end sentences with prepositions.”

Homeless man: “What for, @sshole?”

On accident instead of by accident. Is this a thing? I’ve never seen it anywhere but here.

Oh and illusion vs. allusion and elude vs. allude vs. illude. Those get me all the time.

All of my pet peeves have already been covered but I wanted to add that this thread makes me smile.

I just saw another one on FB:

“There was champaign”

I don’t know, I prefer champagne.  Maybe champaign is the champagne that is offered during a political campaign?

OMG, I just saw a post and it reminded me of something else:  You don’t “hatey” or “lovey” something, so please stop emphasizing the wrong vowel. It’s like fingernails on a blackboard. Urg!

Wrong: HATEEEE Right:  HAAATE.  Wrong: LOVEEEEE Right: LOOOVE.
