I'm tired of hearing these words...

1. OMG (said outright or spelled)
2. "focal point"
3. "Absolutely..."
4. Any description of a non-food item using food terms (yummy, delicious)
5. Any description of an item for sale that involves "incredible" or "unbelievable"
6. 24/7

Tonight, on the way home, there was a construction sign on I85 that was flashing, "Yeild left". Spelled just that way.

Just a thought for your day.

Sounds like you need to join the Facebook group entitled, "Yes, I do judge you when you use bad grammar!". I joined. One of my pet peeves is when one uses the word "basically" with too much frequency. There are so many, I could not begin to list them here. It is obvious that we are related!;D Love, Aunt Laura

Heh heh! I hear you! Read "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" by Lynne Truss. So true and SO funny! I notice this abuse of the English Language, too. One that I hate lately is when people write instructions and include "per." For example, "Please give the Dalmatian in run 4 a shot per Dr. Kristi." BLEH!!!
