It's been so comforting reading this thread and discovering that I am not alone in my hatred of---among other things---apostrophe abuse, an added "s" on store names, and the sounds of eating.
To the last, I must add my recently conceived passionate hatred of the sound of a spoon scraping a plastic yogurt cup. This has come to be a daily (often multiple-times-daily) occurrence with my dieting cubicle mate, and it makes. me. crazy.
My mother lives on hot tea, year round, and every time she takes a sip, it's usually a slurping sip (because it's hot), followed by the sound of swallowing, followed by an "aaaah," either voiced or unvoiced depending on how badly she needed her tea fix. She does this every time she takes a sip. I love my mother dearly, but I feel very violent when I hear this routine.
People who use the word "literally" to mean its exact opposite (figuratively). Do not tell me you literally died, or literally hit the ceiling. You did not.
