Re: Things people say that irritate you
The one that drives me up the wall is when people incorrectly use 'literally'.
Also, many people overuse 'definitely'. When that happens, 'definitely' becomes 'probably'; 'probably' becomes 'maybe'; 'maybe' becomes 'probably not'; 'probably not' becomes 'almost definitely not'; and so on.
One thing I'm noticing recently is that people are misusing the word 'racism'. I think it ultimately ends in more people being offended by things that don't need to be considered offensive.
I hate it when people intentionally mess up a word to be humorous (i.e. strategerie) because idiots hear it and think they're correct in using it non-humorous situations.
I can go on . . .
