I have another one (the gates are open). The woman I sit next to at work says things like “how was holiday” “How is baby” “How was cruise” you get the idea right. What the hell happened to the word “the” being put before all those words. It drives me nuts!! I have no idea why though but I want to slap her and tell her.

ACTUALLY, “monies” is a word!!
I argued with my grandfather about this when I was about 11. But yep, it’s plural form of “money”. There ya go.

“Anecdote” when you mean “antidote.” This one gets me! A woman I work with (who has a PhD from Harvard) says this all the time.
And of course, “No offense but…” is an all-time classic. I always brace myself for the worst when someone starts out with this puppy!
P.S. @pccl that story is hilarious.

actually ‘monies’ is a word, and it is the formal plural for money.
it is not however used in casual language. it is more frequently used in the financial industry.

I hate it when people use the word “great” all the time. The other word is “obviously”. One of my friends always uses “obviously” when its not required. Its really annoying.

Oh my God, for some reason I assumed that was a ridiculous British thing.
Whatevs, along with ‘totes’ (totally), and ‘obvs’ (obviously), sound absolutely ridiculous. Use the full word, damn it!

I hate it when someone says/texts “want” instead of “won’t.” It drives me bonkers. It’s just confusing!
And any text talk I HATE… when people shorten words like you to u… it’s even worse when they write that way on facebook. Ugh!
