I've heard some good ones.

The X used to say "Six of one; dozen of the other" He could never understand when I tried to explain how this was wrong

He and his mother used to say:
"Be more pacific." (specific)

He mother used to like to stay at the Marionette Hotel (the Marriott)

DS used to say: "No ho hoseway" (No way Jose)

One of my best friends does things 'on the sperm of the moment' (spur)

Pet peeve...

...misuse of of

...as in "Get off of the couch!"

... should be "Get off the couch!"


Oh, and another one....
This really irritates me about Dr. Phil... He always references people as "that" instead of "who!"

I have a coworker who is the same way, except he says, "One of one, half dozen of the other.", when we are discussing a decision at work. I usually respond with, "Well, the answer is clear, then!"

Heard someone say one day that she killed one bird with two stones.

For all intensive purposes, I have little to add to this thread.

My XH supposubly knew everything.

Used to drive me up a wall when he would say that.

Since this is a good friend, I will assume that is a malapropism rather than an accurate description.

At least it is still accurate when I mess with people by saying "Six and a half dozen of one or the other."

He mother used to like to stay at the Marionette Hotel
I understand the service is excellent, but when you check in, there are too many strings attached.

Someone did a 360. If they did a 360, they'd end up exactly where they were!

OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! Sad, my H does the exact same thing!!!! It drives me INSANE!

For all intensive purposes, I have little to add to this thread.
haha!

I normally wouldn't admit this to anyone, but in the spirt of fun, I have to confess something.

My Mom was a teacher, so she was quick to correct us, and thank god, she cured me of this rather quickly.

As a teenager, whenever I was hungry, I would say, "I'm ravishing" instead of "I'm ravenous". Gawd, how embarrassing!

I have an aunt who always likes to invite us for "brefkast" and sometimes to a "pasghetti dinner".

lieshurt posted 6/25/2013 08:42 AM

supposubly

This drives me crazy.


My father-in-law used to ask us to bring him some cosmopolitan ice cream. He never could get "neopolitan" down.

"Should of" done something (instead of should have)

"Mute point" instead of moot point (sounds as if you really wish you hadn't heard the point in the first place)

"self-defecating" humor

"irrespective" in any context

Mondegreens, anyone?

Perhaps I misunderestimated your interest in language?

Others that make me nutso -
"I have an Ideal". Yah we all do but what are you thinking of?
