    Oh, and "sure up" instead of "shore up".

    I use "bring" most of the time even when take is more proper but I don't really care. I also say "doing good" insted of "well" because I don't like the word well, it sounds too formal or something, I guess. Like fewer vs. less which is very common, I do that usually when talking, not writing, because "fewer" is rarely used these days and it's harder to say.

    People using homonyms, "could of" (or most grammar really) incorrectly doesn't annoy me unless it's an official document, it just makes me think the person is uneducated and/or careless.

    "all intensive purposes" and "complete 360" crack me up.

    oh oh! redundancies bother me. "absolutely essentially" "the end result" or "resulting conclusion" or "dead last" or "integrate together" or "include in" or "Extract out"

    And people (like reporters) often use "begs the question" to sound smart and most use it incorrectly.

    And people who say "I could care less" is hilarious. People don't pay attention to their words sometimes, lol.

    And, people who use "whom" incorrectly - leaving out the "m" is ok, it's nonformal language, but used incorrectly is hilarious! "Whom likes chocolate bars?" "I don't know whom did that" omg lololol.

    Ohh, these are two that really set me off! Especially "intensive purposes"...what would that even mean?

    There was one I saw that just FLOORED me. It was hilarious. Ready?
    I saw someone write that a person was a "Pre-Madonna" for diva behavior.

    Like it was a progressive disease with more and more diva like behaviour ensuing? (Should have been called pre-mariah!).

    I assume this one is wrong:

    "conflagration of events" should be "confluence of events".

    I've heard "for all intensive purposes" instead of "for all intents and purposes".
    EDIT: Didn't notice this one was mentioned already ^

    No, it was someone who had heard the term "prima donna" but obviously hadn't seen it in print

    Yeah, I got that. I just meant that if they were picking a prima donna ish character (like it was a progressive disease and pre-Madonna was analagous to pre-diabetes before diabetes), then it would be better named pre-Mariah (who is renowned for her diva like ways).

    Aw, forget it!

    affect and effect... I always have to stop and think about if I'm using them properly.

    And I actually see people use desert instead of dessert... I guess they really enjoy eating sand or something...

    Our teacher always told us that the tasty kind of dessert always gets an extra letter because it's extra good and the desert is always lacking what you need to survive so it has less s-es.

    Affect and effect - good one! You can be affected by something, but it may not have any real effect in the end.

    ^^ Oooh, good way to clear that up in a sentence since affect is typically a verb and effect is typically a noun!

    Another one I see...that I really don't understand why people do it...is accept and except...
