I enjoy those sorts of jokes too. Really like racial humor, especially stand-up. But unless you are making a joke every time you use it, its not the same thing.

Panties twisted? Hardly. This thread literally asks us to spell out our lingual peeves. I'm not barging into peoples personal threads as the PC Police.

Anyone hear have the name Will? I swear Im about to start going by William, almost every time I go to a party or have to introduce myself I always have to repeat my name which gives off weird vibes. I can see why, it's one short burst of wuilll. Or woooul. Or wiool. I think that's what people hear the first time around, anyway.

haha great times. Ive tried distinctively saying "will" in a very broad easy to read voice but that is almost worse than repeating myself. Luckily, your middle name is Patrick. Mine is Milton. Therefore I will be William all the days of my life.

I think someone already said this one, but using "literally" when they mean "figuratively."

My wife would love this thread. Poor grammar drives her nuts. When we got married, I (unbeknownst to me) had picked up a few coloquialisms that she couldn't stand, and after repeatedly correcting me when she caught me saying them, have excised them from my vocabulary. Among the worst offenders:

"Nother." As in, "I'm a pretty good skater, but rollerblading is a whole 'nother thing."

"One of them." I think this might be an east-coast thing. "What 'cha got there, Tom? Is that one of them new Camaros?"

"This/these things." If I'm telling my wife a story and say something like, "I was at the bus stop, and I met this homebrewer..." she'll cut me off and ask, "Which homebrewer? This one?" (Pointing out into space, feigning pointing at a person) "Or this one? Maybe this one? Or did you mean you met a homebrewer?"

"Some good." As in, "I had a slice of that birthday cake, and man, it was some good." My wife will ask, "Just some good? Not all good?"

"Right nice." I never really said this one much, but my grandmother says it all the time. "I was at church last week and they've finished rebuilding the pews. Now they look right nice."

I'm sure there's more, but those ones stick out in my mind.

Nope, they do that here too.

It's not poor grammar or anything, but I hate the word "nevertheless"

It really grinds my gears!

Banker speak: I just heard an analyst use the word "optionality" to mean choice...as in "doing X maintains an optionality for you". Same category as using "optics" instead of "visibility"..."We don't have the optics on the fourth quarter yet". All unecessary complexification of words to increase the optics of one's intelligentality.
