    Xmas.

    makes no fucking sense and sounds even stupider said out loud than written down.

    'should of' instead of 'should have'

    people who say 'pacific' instead of 'specific' or people who say 'arks' instead of 'ask'. Can you not hear yourself fucking speaking??

    This bloke I worked with once went to a restaurant called Ask. He then kept going on about having been to eat at 'Arks' and recommending it to people. No one had a fucking clue where he meant. When someone finally figured it out and said, no its called Ask, he just said 'yeah, thats what I said, Arks'.

    Fucks sake.

    "going forward" instead of "in the future"

    "every little helps" instead of "every little bit helps"

    since those idiots at tesco started using it I've started hearing everyday simpletons following suit

    Oh, and not forgetting, people who pronounce 'year' as "yer" rather than "yeer". Twats.

    Arrrrggghhhh! And people who say "what" when they mean "that".

    "What's this stuff here?"
    "Oh, it's the stuff what John asked us to send out.

    Should be a sackable offence.

    No, there really are people who say "I could care less". And yes, they should die.

    Oh fuck yeah - I agree one trillion percent.

    I remember arguing about this with someone and they tried to convince me that it meant the same thing. Seriously, I wanted to kill them.

    Oh and Leolian'sBro - I hope you're reading this. I distinctly remember you using this phrase last weekend. You're lucky you're not rotting in a skip somewhere.

    Haha I'm not mocking you or anything, I've just never heard anybody pronounce it that way. Well, except on TV (newsreaders, the queen, etc).

    Just to clarify, "year" should rhyme with "fear" and "dear", not "fur" and "burr". You've honestly never heard anyone but posh TV presenters talking like this? Do you live in Whitehaven or something?

    Example from IGN:

    But, if you are one of those that could care less about remixed missions, VR missions, and watching Solid Snake skateboard, then stick with the greatest hits version of Sons of Liberty.

    It was reading the Substance review that reminded me of this awful American phenomenon. I remember someone trying to argue that it was the only variant that made sense, and that 'couldn't care less' was nonsensical.

    Right, this isn't a word now, but question marks after non-questions annoy me:

    I couldn't find the game in the shop?

    i.e. normally implying 'is it out yet?' or something but still, NO QUESTION MARK SHOULD BE USED HERE.

    Another thing I remember hearing loads when I was still at school, although I'm not sure how common it is now, is the use of 'is it?' as a general tag for everything:

    I'm going on holiday tomorrow.
    Is it?
    Is what? It's bloody 'are you?' OK?
    Is it?
    Yes.

    Don't see what the fuss about 'cunt' is. It's got a sort of edge to it.

    One of my favourite words.

    So overused in my group of friends, that we have know become immune to its offensiveness and say it in some very inappropriate situations.

    Honestly. Never heard it said like that in real life.

    I live in Liverpool at the moment but I've lived in Gloucester, Carlisle, Scarborough and, weirdly, Cyprus and Pakistan.

    My personal worst is 'meh.' It's so utterly fucking stupid and makes me picture the people using it as really fat unintelligent nerds who think they can throw it around like it's cool but instead it just makes you look like other emo cocktards.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.
