Ahhh that would drive me nuts!  That makes me think of Joey from Friends “It’s a moo point’

Maybe she MEANT it to sound like ‘moot’ but she didn’t know how to spell it..?

Also, ‘nother is an enunciation issue. I  know sometimes I’m too lazy to say a word properly so at least one letter gets ignored lol.

For instance “I’m ‘onna be over here for a minute”. Clearly, what I meant was “I’m going to, or ‘gonna’ be over here…” but my okie came out and…well…. you know.

Not really related, but my boss pronounces things differently.  When she says “huge” or anything like that, she leaves off the h, so it sounds like “uge.”

Haha, that’s hilarious! But frustrating, too. 

There a couple of sadly common one that get to me: 

“common” instead of “come on” 

people who mix up there, their, and they’re

ya instead of yeah. 

(I’m not uptight, I swear! They just… bother me sometimes.)

It’s a moo point. Ahhh Friends, so funny.

I hate it when I hear people say “Can I axe you a question?”. No you can ASK me a question if you’d like though, there’s no X in ask.

No X is “espresso” either!

It’s not “expresso” it’s “espresso.”

I know this isn’t in speaking but whenever I hear a song with ‘you’ that sounds like ‘choo’ I cringe.  My music teacher would never stand for that!

I HATE “supposably” and the confusion between “whose” and “who’s” and “to” and “too”…. the list goes on…

Ohhhhhh, I have one!

My friend sent an email to a not-so-friendly person and my friend wrote, “it’s your loss, not mine.”

This other lady quickly replies and “corrects” my friend and she said that it should be “it’s your lost, not mine”.

Uhmm yeah, thanks for the correction, dear 🙂
