Do people say things wrong that drive you crazy?

I can't stand it when people say things wrong and are trying to sound intelligent. For example, when people say "oncet" for "once", or "twicet" for "twice". I hear educated people saying things like that all the time. Or, when people put "s" at the end of everything. For example, "Krogers" when saying something like I am going shopping at Krogers. Or "Walmarks" or "K Marks". It's Kroger, people. It's Walmart or Kmart. No "S", no "k". Get it right. That's my rant for the day. Anyone else hear things like this? My favorite though is when someone says this, "I can't hear good, I am almost death" IT's DEAF people, not death. I know plenty of deaf people, but few are actually the Grim Reaper...LOL.

It annoys me when people say Pacific instead of specific. Or ax instead of ask. Frustrating! LOL @ Krogers.. I hear that a lot!

Yes, ax gets to me too. I forgot about the one that gets me most though..."irregardless". It's not even a real word. Regardless is all that is needed to be said, but people constantly use "irregardless". My wife can't stand it and I have actually seen her, when the person is being a real jerk, lecture them when they use it. It's hilarious.

I don't know if anyone has responded with the word "ain't" as something bothersome, but for the last time, "AIN'T AIN'T A WORD!"

True, very true. So many people use it that it has almost become acceptable to use. Kind of scary really.

When people say "irrigardless". It drives me crazy. It's not even a real word and people use it all the time to try and sound intelligent. Also, another word I hear people say wrong all the time is "petite". They say "petik" instead. It's hilarious.

My wife is the same way with the word "regardles." She fumes when someone uses "irregardles" so naturally I make it a point to use it as much as possible...LOL.

Yes, it does bug me too. But, we have to endure, as everyone is different. I even get bugged by some people's accents. I am from the south, and south west, and my hubby is from the north east. I cannot believe the way he adds letters and drops letters in words. Drives me up the wall. Hehhee. He laughs at me too. He will never get used to the Y'all.

Oh yeah, I hear the Wal-Marts and K-Marts all the time. I can't think of anything offhand, but I have a friend who hates how I say shoosh instead of shush. It's hard to type it out how one would pronounce something. I usually pronounce shush like shuhsh (if that makes sense). Anyway, he just hates how I pronounce the o's like I do. I think it's funny, though.
