    One phrase that gives me a face palm is each and every one. Which is it? I want to thank each of you or I want to thank every one. Are they not all the same ones?

    Proactive makes we want to puke.
    Organic as in, the company wants organic growth.

    A few of you have posted "At the end of the day" and know I have the song from Les Miserables stuck in my head.

    If we all can be proactive, we can cut out each and every one of these. At the end of the day, this will greatly affect our lives in a positive manner. Trust me on this.

    Shouldn't that be "just had the brakes redone?"

    *Hisself

    "He's going to help hisself a lot." My wife uses this word, and I've tried to explain to her that "hisself" is not a word.

    Two words that are so irritating, mostly used by millennials. Awesome and Amazing. That meal was awesome or amazing.

    One thing that bugs me is when someone is having an argument and cannot formulate a point, so instead commences to repeat a word or phrase over and over again, usually shouting it. "Whatever! Whatever! Whatever! . . . Whatever! Whatever!" Seeing two people do this to each other, while both seemingly thinking whoever speaks last wins, is excruciating.

    Not necessarily a word, but I cannot stand it when someone uses a rising pitch or an added "-uh" on the final word in every sentence they utter. It seems to be an issue with young women more so then young men. I have seen it sneaking across the gender barrier a bit more lately.

    The proper contraction for the unnecessarily repetitive phrase "you all" is "y'all."

    Get it right!

    Two things:

    "Awesome" when used to describe the most mundane of accomplishments (which seems to be the usage more often that not). "I have finished cleaning my comb." "Awesome!"

    Reflexive pronoun misuse, specifically, "myself." "When you have completed your test please hand it to Mr. Howard or myself." No, no, NO!! Please hand it to Mr. Howard or ME!! An awful lot of educated people make this mistake and it really makes me cringe.
