They seem to happen more as we grow older, don't you think? At least they do for me. Another thing that bugs me is national news broadcasters that say "Warshington" when they should be saying "Washington". Where's the "R" come from?

Kids that use the following:
Whatever (after they say something and then add "whatever")
I bad ( When they make an error and then say " I bad" )
My biggest one is the use of "F" word. The kids now days use it every other word in a sentence and they don't care where they are. My daughter said it once when she was younger and she received a slap, still at 29 years old if I ever heard her use that she will receive another slap.
Mostly just listening to any kid. I think English teaching has been dropped of off the schools list of subjects taught.

no, it's not........we're just reacting as parents.........this has been around as old as Atlantis..........our kids will always be pushing the limits......that's their job.....that's what they are supposed to do.........I will give my daughter to anyone who is naive enough to accept her....just kidding :):):)

Around here it's "My bad," which is just as bad! It supposedly means the same (according to the ones who use it), as "I'm sorry," but to me it takes the responsibility out of it, makes it impersonal. Kind of like (another of my pet peeves), "No problem" for "You're welcome." It takes the human element out of it. It seems like this is just another step in society becoming a large number of self-centered individuals rather than a community that looks after one another.

One of my favorite acts at the Faire is Zilch the Torysteller The Nenterint Pome Hage of Terry Foy He tells stories all in spoonerisms. He's great at it too.
