"Trending".

I use this word many times a day.  :P

But...in my defense...

At my job it refers to a very specific budget function and it is a critical part of project management.  :)

And that is the Only context in which I use it. ;D

Am I allowed to stay?  ;)

Sure! :)

I actually saw this on my FB feed:

"Because of the cue of traffic we had to slam on are brakes and I couldn't breath I was so scarred".

It almost physically hurt me. 

Please don't get me started on how lose/loose are not interchangeable, and how "then" is rapidly becoming synonymous with "than".

...Wow.  Bonus points for not spelling it "breaks"?  ;D

So the bolded should read "Because of the queue (?) of traffic we had to slam on our brakes and I couldn't breathe I was so scared."

(is queue right?)

Haha!  I've decided with FB people should pass a proficiency test before being allowed to use it.  When I spend too much time on it, I'm a little afraid I've forgotten how to write.

My issue used to be "your" for you're but now it's "to" instead of too.  C'mon, people...this is a 3 letter word.

This word really annoys me.  Whenever I hear/read it, I lose interest in the conversation.

I used to volunteer in dog rescue.  For people who spend a lot of time thinking, talking, reading, and writing about dogs, I saw a lot of this:
"We've been asked to take in a german sheppard with a litter of puppys.  We can have her spade once the puppies are weened"

AAAAGGGGHHHHH

Expresso instead of espresso. 

Wheelhouse,   I think I first heard this on one of those singing competition, as in, "That song was totally in your wheelhouse."  Now I notice it everywhere.

The other day I saw a story on TV where a woman said "I know I'm not the beatifulest woman in the world, "
WHAT!?  ???  ::)
Obviously she's not the brightest, either.

That sentence has me hyperventilating from shock and awe

I feel ill when I hear people say "She is preggers" or "she is prego" instead of "pregnant." I don't think "expecting a baby" = "a jar of spaghetti sauce."  (Prego is a popular brand of mass-produced spaghetti sauce in North America.)
And along those lines, when half of a heterosexual couple says "WE are pregnant."  No.  Just NO.  Because if both of you are pregnant, either (1) one of you is the world's first pregnant man or (2) both of you are female!

"Like" and its constant companion "y'know" used as conversational fillers.  Especially prevalent in interviews with professional athletes, for some reason.

And one from DH that makes me want to .  I ask him a yes-or-no question, and he answers "Mmmup."  Yep?  Nope?  Hence the use of the Frying Pan of Doom.

Could, would, or should "of" - I just can't.
No, you can't, because you wishpishabonnyfish.

RE: Bad spelling.

There is a charity shop I frequent which organises the books for sale by category. biographies, love stories, etc. but they spell "stories" as "storys" e.g. "Love Storys"
