When I was at school, the teachers would say 'Sit down .... and sit up'.
I am not an English teacher, and my grammar blind spot is run-on sentences, and way too many commas; I mean, give me a semicolon, or two, and your monkey is an uncle.
Grammar I loathe:
"At your beckon call"
"Case and point"
"One in the same"
"Slight of hand"
"Hit the breaks"
"Pass me the coldslaw"
"Gave it my upmost"
"All of the sudden"
Oh, whoa is me, it's enough to make me loose my mind!

Get it. Got it? Good!
In UK we NEVER say standing on line or even standing in line. We say queuing. Cut into the queue, and you'll see us at our worst. It'll be a "no, after you", or a quiet "I thought there was a queue here". Be afraid! We have a no-gun culture for a reason.
Dr Mrs Daddy PhD is a ninja apostropher. Many are the times she has sneaked out in a ski mask, sharpie in hand to correct a roadside sign. The was a hair salon round the corner called Deb's Design's; it would make her shudder.

Yes I believe it was an aircraft mechanic. But the cooking person made a fortune from marketing it.
If I wanted to improve myself I'd remarry, and in no time I'd be walking the line and on the straight and narrow. When Mrs. ping-ping clicka regularly reads me a daily litany of my personal short comings a list her sister and mom help her maintain, the wouldn't be no back slidin' or gold brickin' , no sir-ee bob! You betcha' bub.
One that was gaining traction 17 or 18 years ago in my final days as a New Yorker, was "for a phenomenal fee".
I heard it 3 it 4 times and I couldn't figure out if it was funny/facetious or just a bastardization of "nominal fee".

My personal favourite though, came from the CEO regarding how much time I was taking proof reading and correcting bids, quotes and tenders.
From hereonin, VintageSG ISN'T NOT to check your work.
Now, my twitch has started again. The facial tic and familial tremors may never wholly leave me.
hahah!!! That's so true!
Believe me. I just remarried in August.
I love it - the UK has its own entertaining brand of malapropisms.
And I feel you, man. I been twitching a lot lately, too.
Wow, thanks neighbor! Even I can understand that.

“What” doesn’t usually refer to people.
“What’s in the living room?”
“Mom and Dad.”
Depends. Are they alive?
If they’re dead are they mom and dad or mom’s and dad’s corpses?
