Pet peeves

“Anyways” is not a word.

People saying “Build” when they mean “Built”

People who use the word “An” instead of “a” (and vice versa).

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 :slight_smile: )
    ‘Yooos’ --> plural version of you :slight_smile:

  2. “South”
    ‘Expectially’ --> Especially

  3. “Anywhere”
    Irregardless --> Regardless :wink:

  4. “MidWest”
    Warshington --> Washington
