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?

Supposably.

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

I Must Hatchet You A Question

"Ax" for asked.

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?

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
