Here's one that bugs me. I'm guilty of saying it too. "'Preciate it" instead of "I appreciate it."

My name is Andrew too. I kind of sensed the awesomeness when you joined.

+1 on the corporate lingo, (out of the military and back to school) college business professors compulsively use this crap. I fear when I'm done, they will have burnt it into my mind, and I too will sound like this. Full of complete **** and toolness

Irregardless might be archaic and redundant, but it's a legitimate word.

Oh, well. I guess it is what it is.
Blast fax kudos all around. Go revolutionize some paradigms outside the box.

It's the opposite of both archaic and legitimate. It's a recent invention.

Did I mention I hate the word "children?" Hate it. I hated it when I was a kid, and I hate it now. I dont even mind "child".... No one says, "vote for me, think of the child." Or, "vote no on *x*, think of the kids!" its always "children." Feh.

Sure, my tax dollars going towards a school budget? Cool. Kids need schools. "A new initiative for our children?"... forget it... its going to be wasteful, someone I cant stand will be championing it, and I'm not going to agree with its message in the first place. This has been true 90+% of the time.
