Can I just say that I hate the use of the word "gift" as a verb?

Where I'm from, "are" is pronouned "ah" and "our" is pronounced "ow-ah." So, count yoah blessings! ;-)

I thought of another one today...may or may not be grammatically correct, but it annoys the you-know-what out of me,

I hate it when someone says supposebly rather than supposedly.

The word parent is not a verb in any tense.

Got is used incorrectly all the time too. "I got this," should be "I have this". Got isn't present tense. You might say, "I went to the store and got the milk," to mean you picked it up in the past. But you don't say, "I got the milk" to mean, I have it in my hand right now. That's "I have the milk." I just try to avoid saying got all together and say I picked up the milk.....LOL.

My brother and I both freaked out once when a reporter on our local news said, "What we're about to show you will literally blow your mind."

We were both thinking, "Literally?

When I sing, I always sing it correctly....our like flour. I can't say I always say it correctly though. Sometimes I do.
