or NAV-Y for a GPS unit in a car..
I am not much for "cutsie" words like that.

And I could go on and on and on. Poor grammer and speling and speeking just bugs
me to know end.
How about a sammich or sammy?

And furthermore, "Yeah Right" is coming out of my ears.

BUT, wait. There's more. When people can't apologize, they say "I'm sorry YOU FEEL that way".

Thought of another. When a host or hostess at a resturant asks "Will there be two for dinner"? Well, there are only two of us standing in front of him/her. I whispered to my friend, "No. There are 37. The rest are getting out of their cars."

I don't understand this one. 37 more would be a bit ridiculous, but it would be perfectly reasonable to think there might be 2 more getting out of the car, or maybe another couple is meeting you at the restaurant or any number of other situations where not ever member of the party shows up at the same exact moment.

BUT, what if, you were meeting someone and you wanted to go ahead and get the table and noone asked you? They would put you at a table for two when you have 2 other couples coming to join you.

you beat me GB!! LOL

or, a polite way to say, "is there anyone else coming to seat at your table in a little while?

LOL - jabbur, what you are complaining about is called a "teaser" in the trade. They "tease" you with some story that you might be interested in ... to keep you watching both the show and the commercials. And, what is "coming up" might not show up for 30-minutes! And, with the media moving more and more to the Internet ... I really get ticked when they finally get to the story and only give it 15-seconds and say, "for the full story or for more information check out our website at ...."

I also hate "bugs" ... where you are trying to watch TV and the network thinks they have to put some inane logo on the screen so you are constantly reminded of what network/channel you are watching! It really bugs me when there is text on the screen and the "bug" covers a portion of it and I can't read it. Really great when you're watching something with subtitles. Ironically - my PBS station is one of the worst offenders!!! I would love to get 5-minutes in a room with the person that came up with this idea!

Ironically - I had something specific in mind before I got to venting ... now I can't remember what it was!

That one is okay since it's a regional accent thing. My name is Gloria but people from the East Coast call me Glorier. That's just the way they talk and that's not a problem for me. But call me Glo and I'll bean you.

As for this thread, I think it's very interesting what bugs people and most of them are right on. Maybe we can learn that what we are saying just ain' right.
