    I get irritated with the improper use of "then" and "than". It can change the entire meaning of a sentence.

    Calling dolphin "mahi-mahi". I like the fish but this reminds me of political correctness so folks wouldn't confuse the fish with the mammal.

    LOL...I'm guilty of this one. I just feel weird saying 'your welcome'. I guess it's because when I do anything nice for someone I'm not doing it for recognition. It feels more modest to just say that it's no big deal to be nice....hence the 'No problem'.

    I'm usually not bothered by verbal misuse of the english language. But one exception is how really strong southern accents can mangle certain words and specifically contractions. The biggest example would be 'Cain't'. I can not stand it, I cannot stand it, and I can't stand it. 'Cain't' is NOT a word!!!

    Perhaps you feel weird saying "your welcome" because the proper response is "you're welcome?"
