Irritating Words and Phrases

My husband does this silly thing with my 13-year-old daughter when she's talking. He will actually count the times the uses the word like in a sentence. It's one of the most annoying but common words that has invaded our language!

Another one: whatever. Can you say annoying? Seriously!

How about you know. Those two words are often used by both kids and grownups. That's very irritating!

Another word that drives me crazy: got! It's got to go! Got is so not right! What happened to the words has and have? Where did they go?

But to me, the most annoying punctuation that just physically hurts my ear? Shut Up! I h8 it! Who started that craze? OMG!

If you're thinking this is very petty, I admit, it is! I'm no grammar expert but it can't be that I'm alone. Do these words and phrases bother you too?

Any other irritating words and phrases? Just let me know! gtg!
