    If you're going to make a left turn, move into the intersection when the light turns green. Don't just sit there and wait for it to turn red again.

    Ha! These also get me and I'll categorize it since I have lived around the country.

    1. "New York" (My Aunt and Uncle specifically :) )
    'Yooos' --> plural version of you :)

    2. "South"
    'Expectially' --> Especially

    3. "Anywhere"
    Irregardless --> Regardless ;)

    4. "MidWest"
    Warshington --> Washington

  6. Don't stand there on your mobile phone (cell phone) having a conversation, when you are in front of me in the supermarket checkout!

    (and for those who follow my twitter feed - Herbs has an 'H' ;) )

  8. Old men wearing bluetooth headsets, because they think they look cool - but actually look like robots gone wrong :)

    When you get to the bottom (or top) of an escalator, perhaps remember that there are people behind you who can't stop as you stand and look around.

  10. People with their feet up on the seats of the bus.

    use "A" if the noun does NOT start with a vowel, and "AN" if it does

    And if you are in the UK, you better finish that left turn and not sit in the intersection :)
