To be fair to some of the entries on this list, perhaps they read them in a book? Yeah, that's got to be it. How many of us can honestly say we pronounced 'chameloen' correctly in our minds the first time we read it?

No one? Right. Sometimes pronunciations slip away from us, however the following entries go maybe just a bit too far.


Reddit user, u/Breeze_in_the_Trees, wanted to know what turn of phrase is turned the wrong way when they asked:

What mispronunciations do you hate?

And Did They Have A Good Time?

Are There Any Other Kind Of Purposes?

For all intensive purposes.

But not when they're talking about actual intensive purposes though, right?

I knew this would be a top comment.

"It's nucular, dummy; the 's' is silent."

He Does The Arts Gurd

I have a coworker that says he's a "drawler."

He means that he likes to draw.

I want to slap him every time he says it.

My Drawing 2 professor would call himself a drawrer and a drawing drawring. He would correct you if you said it differently and he even gave us a really pointless story on why he says it that way that basically told us he didnt know what accents were. I hated that dude

Not Just Words, Rather, A Whole Culture On Blast

I work at a Mexican Restaurant, here goes.

Shimmy-shaynga = Chimichanga Tayco(s) = tacos Mannado = Menudo "Care knee asada" is probably my favorite.

I Generally Want To Go

I know so many people who say "generally" instead of "genuinely" and it pisses me off every time they do it

From An English Teacher, No Less

My wife has said and typed "pose to" instead of "supposed to." I love her but goddamn it.

dustinator

It really grinds my gears when people spell it as "suppose to" instead of "supposed to." Aren't English teachers supposed to tell you it has a D at the end?

When you go on a job interview, the last thing you probably never think about is asking a question.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
