@edgypeanuts: Lovely greyhound!

“I don’t know” is a phrase I cannot stand. It drives me into an unstoppable rage.

It bothers me when people use the wrong words entirely- I had this crazy boss that would say (over and over), “You have to use your INITIATIVE!”  And point to his brain.

emb – I COMPLETELY agree. I always correct my students!

I hate when people shorten words like “vom” for vomit and say things out loud like JK, LOL etc. I dislike internet speak.

@Miss Leopard: I understand the dislike for the word but… it is a pretty old word. So most people don’t know that regardless is the proper word to use.

Ginormous . . . it’s like hearing fingernails down a chalkboard to me.  Also, unnecessary abbreviations.
