When grammar gets me all pissed off I relax with a nice cup of expresso.

Sadly if enough people mis-pronounce a word it becomes acceptable http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/espresso

Another word like that is nausea. Used to be something would make you nauseated, but now you can be nauseous also. And just because enough people made that mistake, suddenly I'm wrong. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/nauseous

A rare exception there, that is the English version creeping back into American English! What the hell is going on!?.... Room is spinning, making me nauseous!
