    I'm also irritated when they write, "He lighted a match." or "She lighted a cigarette." The correct word is 'lit'. I have never lighted a match in my life but I've lit a few.

    Another side irritation. In TV and movies, whenever someone is watching Jeopardy, they say their answers in the form of a question. I've watched Jeopardy with quite a few people, and they never, NEVER do that in real life. They just blurt out the answer.

    And since I'm on this nonsensical rant, why does everyone use the word 'basically' so much nowadays? Basically, it drives me nuts!
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    Or the use of the word literally when it is not something literal...

    My pet-peeve is people using "of" instead of "have" or the contraction " 've". For example "I could of typed could've or could have, but I didn't"

    Personally, I have never heard any one say, or seen anyone write "lighted"

    Well, since we're on the subject. When you say, "Thank you" and get "Yep" as a response. I don't know why, but it irritates me. So much in fact that I broke my kids of the habit at a young age, at least around me.

    Another minor linguistic aberration (at least to my foreign eyes) that I see very often online: people writing 'niceeeeeeee' instead of what I think should be 'niiiiiiiice'. I just don't get it

    I answer in the form of a question every time. I have since I was a kid, but I'm a bit strange.

    I'm enjoying this topic of pet peeves and people not talking goodly.

    Oh that reminds me, Brian. Unnecessary use of “I mean” when what follows is not something being explained further. In other words, when it’s not used the way you just did.

    Also, “I feel like” can sometimes drive me nuts. “I feel like that guy is funny.” No, you didn’t feel shit, you thought it, and then you said it, but you didn’t feel that a person is funny.

    I’ll try to get it back to topic...

    2.5 years ago my Oldest daughter drafted to the Israeli army (mandatory if you live in Israel , not for us since we live in US). She finished her service 6 months ago, came back and planning to go to college next year.

    Gal, My middle one did the same and drafted to the army 3 months ago. She finished her initial training last week and started her “real” service at one of the special forces units base ( Somewhere ) as educational officer .

    VERY PROUD FATHER!!!
