    If I hear "No doubt about it." or "No question about it." one more time by sportscasters or newscasters I'm going to throw my shoe at the TV. Count how many times you here it now that I've mentioned it... almost as rampant as "awesome" to describe anything mediocre or better.

    Agreed! Where's Howard Cosell when we REALLY need him.

    I to get upset with incorrect usage. Two often you'll find grammatical errors repeated too times or more in the same message.

    Ouch. It even hurts to right that.

    My uncle would always say "we stood at the hotel". I always asked him "why didn't you sit?" and he would give me a HUH! look.

    Lots of little pronunciation gaffes (trends?) out there:

    • Axe (ask) me if I care.
    • Breffas (breakfast) is the most-important meal of the day.
    • Feb-oo-erry (February).
    • Korter (quarter).

    How about, he goes, "I like that gun." And she goes, "I do, too." And he goes, "How much did it cost?"

    Just going...err, saying.

    We have become so inundated with bad grammar that it tends to slip into our speech without being noticed. One that I hear virtually all of the time is: "different than", when it should be "different from".

    Another that drives me crazy (I know, it's a short trip!) is the use of "bring", when it should be "take".

    While you're right about "each their own"...

    I could care less... Really, I could. But I don't. I care just enough to admit I'm wrong!

    Thanks

    Working in a retail store gives many a lot of stories here. When we have defective products, stolen packages, torn packages, or other problems with something, we write up a claim tag and send it to the claims area. A little while back, someone found a desk set that did not have the ink pen in it. The claim tag had "penismissing".
