*People who feel the need to use the world 'literally'. I get it, you aren't talking metaphorically.
*Text speak. Especially text speak that doesn't involve the shortening of a word. Such as people who feel the need to use the letter 'z' in place of an 's', making the word length the exact damn same.
*People who use the word 'brought' instead of 'bought'. I used to do this, but since it was pointed out to me, I always notice when others do it. And similarly, people who say 'would of' instead of 'would have', or mix up 'was' and 'were'. I usually correct people when they do that, and people tend to look bemused.
*Overuse of the word 'sexist'.
*Worship of celebrities.
*People who use the word 'feck'. Just say f**k! If you don't want to swear, there's plenty of words you can use that actually exist.
