    The misuse of the word literally.

    "He literally came out of nowhere."
    "They literally picked him off the scrapheap."
    "It's literally raining cats and dogs."

    Have I mentioned "they" used to refer to a singular subject? I know we had that debate before, but that is one of my biggest pet peeves.

    I hate it when people say "guys and girls" instead of "boys and girls" or "guys and gals".

    My son and I were touring a big university a couple of weeks back. The tour guide asked everyone what they planned to major in. One girl proudly answered "nucular engineering." We decided afterward that we hoped one doesn't have to pronounce that correctly to do it correctly.

    "fyi" drives me crazy, basically any any string of words shortened to a couple of letters is lame
    and the use of "good" instead of "well"

    Phonetically I can at least account for many mispronunciations. I cannot follow the "logic" that leads to the common mispronunciation of "nuclear" (because there isn't any).

    Kids using "tbh" (to be honest) incorrectly. For example, "tbh, you seem nice." It seems like there should be a "but. . ." following it up. "Tbh you seem nice, but I heard you still wet the bed."
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
