I know this is stupid, but it is something that I have seen numerous times on this site and it’s like nails on freakin’ chalkboard to me so I finally decided I’m going to point it out and hopefully clear it up for people:
Weary vs. wary vs. leery:
Weary = tired, worn out, exhausted, fatigued, sapped, burnt-out, spent, drained…
Wary = cautious, careful, on guard, alert…
Leery = suspicious, distrustful, cautious…
I’ve seen too damn many posters on this site write things like “I’d be very weary of a guy who…”
You’d be WARY of a guy who… or you’d be LEERY of a guy who…

Mine is “could care less” instead of “couldn’t care less”

Yes. Why are people so “weary of” things these days. All this ennui is making me weary (wary?).

Sansa85 : I’ve only heard Americans say “could care less” and I don’t say anything because I figured it’s always been said in this way and this is a predominately US forum. Doesn’t make sense though!

Sansa85 : this one kills me. They do it on tv or in movies all the time. A simple google search could have helped!

“Resting bitch face.”
It’s actually supposed to be “bitchy resting face” but somehow it got mixed up and nobody is catching the mistake.

Thanks for that. I’m closing this thread though as it’s sole purpose is to criticise other posters.
