The one that always gets me is women that describe themselves as being "volumptuous" as opposed to "voluptuous".

What about referring to your significant other as "the wife" or "the girlfriend"?

Pretty demeaning IMO.

Now if you affectionately refer to them as "the hog", that's perfectly OK.

PRONOUNS! I am sick of hearing people on TV (and elsewhere) saying "Me, him, and her was walking to the store..." "Him and myself was just standing there..."

If you can't figure out how to use pronouns correctly JUST SAY "WE".

We were walking to the store... We were just standing...

Haha! I have already worn my "Happy Festivus!" shirt this month.

Getting back on track..."their," "there" and "they're," mean three different things.

Please Dude; enlighten me as to what is wrong with the following sentence.

What drives me crazy are people who use irregardless, makes me want to smack them.

Nothing at all. I thought it was funny that it was used in a sentence a few posts after yours. Maybe I should have made that more clear since the Internet is sometimes hard to read, which is why people should make more of an effort to spell, punctuate, capitalize, use spaces and just make ****ing sense.

If you really want me to get picky, you should have used quotation marks around "irregardless."
