    Well, if we're doing English mistakes, then I can't stand sentences with "people that think/say/do..." instead of "people who think/say/do...."

    "Less" in place of "fewer" also bugs me, but I think I'm going to have to give up on that one. "Fewer" is going the way of the dodo bird.

    I am extremely annoyed that this morning's headline of an editorial about education by the president of a local university was "Behind Every Student Is Quality Teachers." Really?!?!?

    Peaked (or worse, peeked) instead of piqued.

    One of the local supermarket chains fixed their signs some years back to "14 items or fewer." Amazing.

    And in general, when closed captioning has misspellings. I can understand the live feeds having mistakes, but when TV shows and movies that were worked on for months or years have them, it really bugs me.

    Apple picking at a different orchard than we usually go to, and it was a hot mess. Mobs of people, long lines to buy bags and donuts, and there weren't even enough of my favorite variety to fill a bag. I feel bad because I (well, my kids) chose this orchard because we had a nice time there two years ago with my parents, and I'm pretty sure my MIL and BIL hated it. And it was 85 degrees and lugging a 20-pound bag of apples around in the sun is not fun.

    I'm not sure if this should be in the annoyance or hater thread. Hmmm. I guess I'll just put it here. We are not religious people. At all. My son's best friend is from a born again family. It really doesn't bother me because the family, although they've invited us to church events a few times, hasn't really pushed it. Every time we're invited to a church related activity we have declined. Last weekend they invited my son with them to watch some sort of athletic thing and he said he'd like to go just to hang out with his friend (he's not into sports and doesn't like watching sporting events, he just wanted to hang out with his friend) so off he went. He returned a few hours later and said it was horrible. He was polite, and told them he had a good time, but he wasn't happy. As it turned out, it was a church thing. They did 5 minutes worth of sports and 30 minutes worth of talking about Jesus, then a few more minutes of sports, then talk about Hell and praising Jesus and being saved. Sigh. I guess he won't be going to any more events with that family!

    Apple picking is only fun if you get a hayride and if it's cool enough out to be wearing long pants and a sweater, and you must have a cinnamon doughnut and hot apple cider after picking the apples.

    Stores that put up "Re-Grand Opening" signs. Boy's near constant humming/singing/whistling, and the fact that I tolerate it much better than DH does, so I see his reaction as over the top and he sees mine as lame.

    Have all those who hate language mistakes seen the video to Weird Al Yankovic's "Word Crimes" parody of Blurred Lines?
    Well worth it.
    Chalk me up as another mom being driven mad by her nearly-7-year-old son's constant talking, and when he's not talking, he hums, tunelessly, just as if he isn't comfortable if he can't hear himself, ALL THE TIME.

    Hah! Glad Im not alone with the incessantly chattering kid. Is he a boy or a budgerie?
    The Douglas Adams (or maybe Pratchett from Good Omens) line about how it is humans talk constantly lest their brains start working.
    How can there be so much chatter with nothing to say? I know Im supposed to encourage him, but oh please ���� parents with older kids, tell me he will grow out of this phase.
