Number 1 wins. Just say regardless. Or irrespective. Don't mash the two words up into something that means "not regardless".

I love the fact they brought up numbers 6 and 12. Those drive me crazy! I don't hear "sherbert" used nearly as often as "nauseous", so I guess the latter is the worst one to me.

Maybe this is a southern problem, but they should've included "unthaw".

I'm a douche when it comes to number 7. That pisses me off so bad when people so it incorrectly.

This is easy. For me it's, "Ima", as in "Ima choke-slam the next person that uses that made-up word."

Irregardless of how you unthaw your frozen pizza, you need to make sure your hot water heater is working. Otherwise, you need to conversate with the repair man, and be sure to announciate, or else he may think you want him to toss expresso on your sherbert or vice a versa. Do not misunderestimate this either, because there is president for this making people flustrated and nauseous which will supposably cause them to run outside, and throw up in the foilage.

However, for all intensive purposes, I could care less, and this is probably going to become a whole 'nother me-me.

"Irregardless" and "could care less" are at the top of my grammar pet peeves.

"I could care less" ticks me off. I always say "couldn't" right after someone says that and the person almost always replies "what?"....LOL.

I do the exact same thing. Sometimes when they say "I could care less" I say "well you should then..." Then I have to explain myself.

One that really bugs me is "I seen". I seen where so-and-so did this. I seen this movie the other day. I seen online where a player said something interesting.

*shudders*

This cracks me up though:

In spoken grammar it has to be using who instead of whom and vice versa.

Written: the difference between affect and effect...

Maybe I'm just picky.
