I didn't to that first, someone else did it first, so I just did it too.

What annoys me most?

Annoying people in general...

Doing not well in anything... (academic)

People pluraling (is that a word??) "genus" as "genuses" ITS GENERA!!!! >.< (That's my biggest pet peeve)

When people use "good" and "well" in the wrong context. It's not "I did good in DP." it's "I did well in DP." (Grammar Nazi much? I think so.)

That's all I can think of for now...

My biggest pet peeve is probably when people misuse the words 'song' and 'piece' when referring to music. A song is specifically for voice, while a piece is for instruments. For goodness sakes, even iTunes does it!

Edit: Also, whenever people commit crimes against the English language in general. I was a the Penn State library today doing some research, and I saw a poster that had two spelling or punctuation mistakes in one sentence. :shock: :x :cry:

1. When people say "I seen..." or "I have saw..."
2. When people say Me and Him at the start of a sentence
3. When event supervisors do not know their event (at my last invitational the meteorology event supervisor didn't know we could have note sheets)
4. When there are small children at competition...they do not belong there for serious competitions.
5. When people use the wrong version of there, their, or they're. (ex. It's over their!)

There are many but the ones I can think of now are:

1. People who mess up your and you're.
2. People who decide to start feuding over an arbitrary scioly thread. :P
3. People who are bandwagon fans.
4. People who accuse me on the Assassinator thread. :roll:
