From Merriam-Webster

Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.

It fell out of use and just recently reappeared usually used by the same people that that say aggreeance

Maybe that's because your wife is newly impregnated, and you're shuddering at the responsibilities of being a father.

On a lighter note, my wife and I have friends who's last name is Child. When we have them over for dinner, we get to say "the Children are coming over for dinner". It sounds more correct than "Child's"

I'm unsure why this gets under my skin but when people say, "I need to go to the ATM machine." It is an Automatic Teller Machine. A.T.M. The M means machine already. Bothers me for no good reason to no end.

That's like some that are in the military or dod personnel will agree with. We have CAC's and you will hear people say "have you seen my CAC card?" CAC stands for common access card. The redundant card irritates me.

I'm on active duty. Probably where my frustration comes from. I have heard people say the CAC thing too.

"PIN number" affects me similarly!

Legitimate is a stretch. It never has been and still isn't accepted standard English.

Congrats on the forthcoming children BTW. Multiples are a handful though, just ask Ace.

That's my guess too.

I think Creamy should start a poll thread and let the good members of HBT help decide what his twins are to be named.

The good thing is the endless number of CAC jokes that can be made. "Have you seen my CAC? It's a white CAC. I think I left my CAC in that girl's slot..."
