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

I don't usually correct people in real life either, except my children.

Mine are things like "ideal" instead of "idea"; "axe" instead of "ask"; "get out the car" instead of "get out of the car".

I'm sure I have more.

Apostrophes are my biggest grammar pet peeve.
