    from what Tink said in another thread.... words that people use wrongly that annoy the heck out of you. Mine are... Pacific for specific and when people say somethink instead of something. I know I know I'm a fine one to talk... but mine is done in fun.

    What are yours.

    OK I take details of medical problems via the phone and the amounts of different words I've heard to describe peoples genital parts is unbelievable. For crying out loud, I'm trained, I know the real words, and we're on the phone, I can't see you blushing. :rofl:

    Irregardless. It has been known to make me leave the room. Seriously. When people say that it's just like nails on a chalkboard to me.

    Helly, I know what you mean! I like to have fun with language too, but try not to misuse words when I am being serious!

    Realitor is another one, by the way. The word is REALTOR.

    I have a relative who constantly uses the wrong form of the past tense. "I didn't want to ate that so I ordered something else." Makes me buggy!

    Oh gosh, yes! That drives me bonkers. He's actually managed to confuse me on that word. I stumble over it every time, so that now I try to avoid it's use at all!
