Just my own little personal annoyances in life 🙂
I don’t understand why a lot of people say “Aks” instead of “Ask” as I want to scream IT’S NOT A WORD!
Why does it also appear that starting EVERY sentence with the words “I mean…….” I hear this a lot and don’t get it at all. How can you mean anything when you have yet to say something.
These are just little pet peeves lol. Anyone else have things that annoy them like this?

I work in an optometry office and literally EVERY SINGLE DAY we have patients come in and say:
“I’m here to have my eyes examed” or
“I need to make and appointment to have my eyes examed”
I want to knock myself out!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its “I’m here to have my eyes examined” I understand that, were I live, people have a different way of talking…but who in the world has ever heard the word “examed”?

@pccl: LOL! Where I come from people seem to think “hurted” is a word. Really, it has never been and makes people sound stupid.

I hate when people say “…I’m just saying” Well I hear you speaking and I understand that you just said it, so why are you following up with “I’m just saying”, what else would you be doing when words are coming out of your mouth?

I hate it when people misuse the word literally. As in, “Omg, I literally will die if I don’t get those shoes.” No sweetie, I promise you won’t.

I have to tell this story about a very loved friend of mine also. She laughs about it now, so its ok.
A bunch of friends were playing catch phrase one night and the word she described was “its a green goo you eat at mexican restaurants” and we guessed guacamole and got a point. The person on the other team saw the card and screamed “That says glaucoma!” We laughed for an hour. Love her heart, she laughed harder than the rest of us.

@skyeatnight: Fiance and I always say “aks”, but we do it to be silly.
@Roux: Haha, that reminds me of the one How I Met You Mother episode when the friends talk about each other’s bad habits!

The word I always avoid using is “super” I just can’t get to grips with everything being “super fast” and “super exciting” and “super, super, super” Drives me mad!

Ah, one of my biggest pet peeves…massacring the English language!
One of the biggest: “supposably” It’s supposedly! (My husband does it on purpose because he knows it drives me insane!)
“your” instead of “you’re” There is a difference!
Yes, “Ax” for “ask”. When my students tell me they are going to “axe” someone, I always tell them not to do that because they might hurt them. It’s a little joke for me, because most don’t get my meaning. lol
I used to work in an alternative high school for behaviorally disturbed students and the staff would constantly say that we had to “consequate” the students. Arrgghh, it’s not a word! It’s just become accepted.
I could go on forever!

I really cannot stand when people use the word “monies” it’s MONEY! There is no such word as “monies” it drives me up the wall!
I also cannot stand when someone types out a sentence like ” I wish I would of thought about that.” It’s “I wish I would HAVE thought about that.” Or “I wih I would’ve though about that.”
I also don’t like when girls say “I was like…” and it turns into “I’s like…” Can you tell I work with a bunch of women? Haha!
