LOL! Yet another one I've never heard and I'd laugh if I did.

When Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon call their twins 'Dem Babies.... it annoys me for some reason.

"I know, right?"

Where did THAT come from? I have been hearing it a lot in the last couple of years and I cringe whenever I hear it.

About 2 weeks ago when I was in line at a drugstore two employees were having a conversation and they said that to each other 3 times each!

"You best believe"

"You best to stay away"

I hate the way best is used that way. It doesn't even make sense.

They should destroy this word "Nitpick"
Stupid word.

Also, many people are using the word, "there" in place of "their". The former shows position, place; the latter, shows ownership.

Not to mention a virtual plethora of creative spellings, none of which are correct, sometimes so obscure, it's like cracking a code...
The most common mistake I see is people typing "rediculous" for "ridiculous".

Whatever (bad enough by itself, but infinitely worse with that Valley Girl sort of stress on 'ever.')

Whatever

My Bad

You Guys (when addressing men and women)

When I thank a server in a restaurant and they say "No Problem".

It's all good.
