    Howard Related: ya know, the way that Beth's voice grates on your ear.

    and that would include misspoken grammar and other malaprops.

    For example:

    Conjugation mistakes such as: "We was going to the beach"
    ....and filler words, e.g. "I like went to my friend's house, ya know what I mean?"

    ....or "It was an easy decision to make at the end of the day"

    What figures of speech, commonly used poor grammar, frequent mispronunciations, sentence fillers, etc. irritate the hell out of you?????

    People that use the word 'literally" incorrectly. I figuratively want to rip their head off.

    I hate people who say "Yeah, no." or "No, yeah". I have heard other people use Robins "I was just going to say that." Aloso annoying.

    Adding clauses to the end of sentences for no reason, and things of this nature.

    Not a figure of speech, but "supposebly" is like nails on a chalkboard.
