Spinoff: What mispronunciations, or wrong word usages make you cringe?

Like Tree2Likes

Liberry for library. It's not a fruit!

FebUary for FebRuary

Fith for Fifth

orry for awry

AX for ask I axed him? You chopped him up?

and of course, I seen instead of I saw.

And I'm probably the only one who cringes at this, but it's not baby mama or baby daddy, it's baby's mama or baby's daddy.

And lastly, pewckle for pickle. Whaaatttt?

Oh, no -- sorry CP. That was me assuming that the punctuation for a smiley-sticking-out-tongue would yield an actual smiley-sticking-out-tongue. Turns out, it doesn't.
You's ..... i.e. "You's want some breakfast?"

effin hate when people say that.

Thanks, CToast.

Also cringeworthy: I'ma instead of I'm going to, as in:

I'ma see him tomorrow ... instead of I'm going to see him tomorrow.

And the constant use of "like" instead of "said" as in:

...and then I'm like blah blah blah and then he's like blah blah blah instead of

...and then I said blah blah blah and then he said blah blah blah.

Grrrr. All this tends to happen on buses where I am stranded sitting next to morons gabbing loudly and inanely on their cell phones. And I'm like STFU! but I don't say nuthin. (hee)

I agree with the ones listed already.

I overheard a woman talking to her friend in a clothing store about "lingery" — she meant lingerie.

A friend of mine asked me once if I had a "res-ahyp" for the dish I wanted to make. After I fell out, and dried my tears of laughter, I let her know that it was pronounced res-uh-pee (recipe).

I cannot STANNDDDDDDD the way some women use the word "female".

As in, "This female tried to approach my husband in the club last night"........or "Some females cannot stand the way I look"......

I'm sorry but it grates my nerves to no end.
I say Feb-You-ary and Fith. LOL
I am more lenient when it comes to verbal communication.
I hate seeing "your" for "you're" in written communication. "Your stupid" is hilarious to me.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.


3a/3b
I know. "Female" makes us sound like we're some sort of animal.

Hey sinistral - you're my lefty twin. How's it going?

Its funny how different areas use different words. Some of these things that are popular in some places have never been used in others... for example I've heard maybe half the things mentioned on here before, and not the other half. idk I think its funny I guess.

I hate when people say, "I could care less...."

NO NO NO NO NO, its "I could NOT care less...". Otherwise, you care a whole lot rather than caring so little you have no caring whatsoever left in you!!!

Drives me INSANE!!!!
3a, thin, growing out as far as i can before i go insane and chop it!

Co-Wash: Cure Care
Conditioner: EVOO hot oil from the kitchen
DT: Joico K Pak
Stylers: CG Mousse of some sort, usually HE or Clairol 3-in-1 if I can find it!

Then Diffuse until about 75% dry, then air dry the rest of the way**

Angers me. If you're gonna text, text right. I can handle "u" instead of "you" but with the other things mentioned, grrrrrr.
