I know it's ridiculous, but it drives me *crazy* when people misuse the reflexive tense.

"I'd like to thank you all for talking to Jim and myself."

A tip: just don't use it. Any version of "self" (myself, yourself, himself, herself, ourselves). 99.99% of the time, the reflexive tense is inappropriate. Unless he is doing something to himself, or you are doing something to yourself, don't use it. Just don't.

Don't.

When people say something like "I'm going down to Chicago for vacation" when we are clearly south of Chicago.

I absolutely can not stand it.

people who chew gum loudly. If I can hear you chewing your gum, you're doing it wrong...

Given the choice, I would extinguish all such offenders from this planet...

Political correctness. If your dumb, your just dumb, your not intellectually challenged. Just get to the point and we can all get on with our lives without having to worry about each others "feelings".

My pet peeve is people who blame Brant Brown for losing that game. Hey, Maybe beck should get someone out... Just sayin'. And there were two Fridays in a row that he hit a walk off HR, but never mind those.
