    There are so many..."Literally" is a big one. But the number one worst offender of all time has to be "Irregardless". I cringe when I hear that.

    My response to that would be... "fine by me, give me your address and I'll write you a seriously well written, snarky letter, first class post."

    I really do not like the word "hubby". When I get married, I refuse to call my husband "hubby". I think of a big fat lazy guy.

    Well, there are probably phrases that grate on me from time to time, but really depending on how they are said/in what circumstances.

    But, a lot of this kind of thing is language/culture based: As an Example: Safe/ Scene/ Sick / Awesome = all mean the same damn thing! What each culture is trying (desparately) to say is "that's nice" in different ways! LMAO

    One that I perfectly agree with, one Raffles already mentioned, is "Chillax" ...that one is almost Shakespearian but yet has FAIL stamped over it a-plenty

    A basketball game anotator said " they are having another second chance this quarter ".

    Isn't that redundant?

    "At this time" Why not just say "Now" or "currently" - why use three words when one would suffice?
    "You know what I mean?" at the end of every sentence.

    Oh - I know - people who say "Nucular" instead of "Nuclear". ARRRRGGGH!
    How about "You Know" every ten words or less?

    Okay wow. You all listed many things i can't stand myself, and this is a great thread! Usually it's horrible grammar that really bothers me, especially when someone says: "this is mines" or "mines is better" ...it's just a simple thing and some people just haven't gotten it yet. Ohh and one of my favorites: "What did I told you?"

    Agreeing with most others here .. esp 'my bad' ...grrrr

    My top cringes are the ones that are said 'at' you rather than 'to' you like...

    It's not Rocket Science - why even add that to anything you say? - except to show how rude and superior you think you are

    Where the rubber meets the road - I will instantly dislike anyone who says that

    "It'll all be better in the morning". Granted a good nights sleep can be helpful to thinking rationally, but sleep isn't a cure for anything cept insomnia.

    What I dont get is when u see in movies or soaps, when ppl are hysterical or upset about something or receive shocking news they get a drink of gin or whiskey or something and its assumed that it would calm u down, what if u were a violent drunk or something

    The tea issue, i always feel better after a cuppa tea, but more so after a nice brewed cup of tea, but yeah Nuala, wonders will never cease

    The French state the obvious, eg I'm walking down the road with 2 dogs, " are you taking the dogs for a walk " walk ! dogs ! not at all these are elaphants going for a jog ! mind you they mean well. also they never say "i'ts hot today" they say "it's not cold" & visa versa. not annoying.

    When people say "I could care less..." it drives me bonkers. The are meaning to say "I couldn't care less" because if they could care less then it means they actually care.
