    Most of it is caused by the new illiteracy that comes from everything being passed around verbally and nothing actually being written or read.

    This gives us little gems like "meatyoaker" and "Bone apple tea"!

    Still to this day, my father says "ongions" instead of "onions" and it makes me want to punch something.

    Ok this is obscure but everyone misuses "begs the question."

    What they really mean is "That statement raises the question of..."

    'Begs the question' refers to a statement meant to support an argument, which presupposes the very issue being argued. Like:
    Person 1: "I think Albert is a hat thief."
    Person 2: "Why do you suspect him of that?"
    Person 1: "Because I believe he steals headwear."
    In effect you just re-stated the same thing you're being asked to prove.
    This one is really obvious, but people make these kind of statements all the time, particularly in the political realm

    I used to fly to Chesapeake Bay for business. We would go to Stoney’s for crab cakes. They were excellent.

    Being from New York, I am sure i say somethings in a manner that middle America cringes at. Like fuggedaboutit or whatsamatta you.

    My cringlelist includes a grown person saying wicked awesome, a large black cat or Football team refereed to as a Jagwire, a cup of expresso, and most of all "different than." o_O

    honorable mention to "I could care less" and "he thinks who the hell he is."

    I find Andy’s accent fairly odd.



    Just around the corner from my kids high school.

    Cheers,

    "It's a doggy dog world"

    As an old coot, my biggest pet peeve is the words that have been redefined or distorted over my lifetime. To me, a dude is still some fancy pants cowboy in spurs and rhinestones. Guys that say they like Maple necks when differentiating between an all Maple neck and a MAPLE neck with a Rosewood board. Single coils as code for Strat pickups, but not P90s. Dynasonics, and other single coils PUs...People who call "bluesrock" blues. The misuse of anal-retentive really annoyed me for years but doesn't seem as popular as it was. I could go on........ and on...

    Irregardless.

    I could care less (used to mean "I couldn't care less").

    A whole 'nother.

    Going forward (used to mean "in the future").

    Take care.

    Cheers.

    No problem (in response to "thank you").

    No worries.

    It's all good.

    My bad.

    Sick (to mean "awesome" or the like).

    Amazing.

    Literally (used to mean something other than what "literally" means).

    Touch base.

    Pow-wow (to mean "huddle and figure this out").

    I could go on all night with this list, but those ones come to mind immediately.
