    as long as I know what someone means, I don't usually care how they say it, but I do find certain phrases get me on edge, such as:

    - "saved" used in the typical Protestant kinda way
    - pronouns that denote God having capital letters, like He, Him, Whose, You and things like that, I get the reasoning behind it but for some reason it just bugs me, can't really explain why
    - when people say/write 'take a decision' rather than 'make a decision'. Apart from looking strangely pidgin, it suggests an avoidance of responsibility, like we're not owning it, not admitting to creation of the decision but suggesting instead that we're sorta plucking it from elsewhere, ready made. Huh.

    "Should of." You can say "Should've" and it's okay by me, but when you write it, it's "Should have."

    "Better then." Sorry. It's "Better than."

    I know it's correct to use 'literally' when you are trying to say 'really, really, really,' but it still bugs me. If you say it was "Literally raining cats and dogs" I'm going to think bad things about you. I can't help it.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I also don't like the word "classic", just because it puts things on a pedestal and often causes people (especially newcomers to whatever "classic" thing it is) to not actually interpret and decide for themselves if they enjoy something. This can also be applied to critics in general, although that wouldn't be relevant to this thread. People assume something is great because it is considered "classic" and don't neccesarily think independantly. If you don't like whatever classic thing after your own interpretation and your own tastes, you are automatically immature, unintelligent, have poor tastes, ect, and this bothers me. Too much pretention...

    "I'm sorry you feel that way".

    It's insulting on just about every level I can think of. It's about the furthest thing from a genuine apology there is; it's a mockery of an apology - a placebo that'd only fool or placate the most gullible moron. When I hear someone say that, I really, really, really want to beat them black and blue.

    Also: "daycation" (as in a one-day vacation). Spas in soCal use this in their marketing a lot. It's annoying.
    WooHoo! I want a "daycation! hehe ;P

    I was told over at INTPc that it was polite to say IMHO or IMO when giving advice in a thread. I suppose it's helps one come off as less of a know it all. The 2cents thing annoys me too. I am pretty blunt irl but online I try to be a little more tactful and will give them the imo now and then to keep the peace. That and I promised Ivy that I would behave over here and I am a woman of my word.

    Understand beeatches?

    I am truly sorry. Is this better?

    Zerg I couldn't agree more. Text speak really pisses me off. It proves how Idiocracy is alive and well in the world. God help us all. Intelligent people please reproduce so the "Britneys" of this world will become the minority.

    "The future is now"

    So stupid. So meaningless. So over-used.

    Yeah magic, I'm with you on that. And I'm also 100% with TBGO on "everything happens for a reason". I really hate that one too and have blogged about it in the past. #

    Jen, actually I think the most genuine apologies don't need to make use of the word "sorry" at all. If someone realizes they're wrong, the best thing to do would be to admit it and, moreover, change their actions to prove it.

    edit - I've no issues with text speak - IN TEXT MESSAGES!!!! If it's the only/main way that a person writes in any context, however, I tend to feel not so much annoyance at the person, but at the education system and society that's failed them. But then that just begs other questions that invalidate the entire concept of having any problem with any form of spelling or grammar at all, and I end up not really being bothered...
