When people say "could care less" when they really mean "couldn't care less". I have never seen anybody but Americans make this mistake. Larry David does this all the time on Curb Your Enthusiasm, which is just giving morons more ammunition to think they are correct. It is one of the very rare (might be the ONLY) things that I dislike about the show.

The "I could care less" thing makes more sense if you see it as a fragment of a longer sentence that makes sense, like "There's nothing I could care less about"

I dislike the recent trend of referring to stars as "alum". Like this headline: ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Alum Shay Mitchell Sets Overall Deal at Warner Bros. TV, Joins Lifetime Series ‘You’. It's a TV show, not a university.

The face screenshot captures of people on Youtube that react to movie trailers.
Except for a few reactors, most of them select those fake OMG!!! mouth open / face contorted stills.

What I really hate is in a film when someone is looking through binoculars and they see something they are surprised by, so they forget the binoculars and just use their eyes to GET A CLOSER LOOK, then when they go back to the binoculars that surprising thing has vanished. JUST KEEP LOOKING THROUGH THE BINOCULARS FFS!!!!

When you see a "wait for it" video on Facebook or whatever. I don't wait. Fucking edit the video to the key point.

I think I finally have a legit one. Movies based on books (And they turn out to be awesome films) and some asshole that says the book is better for these reasons. To which I reply "I'll tell you why the movie is better, it doesn't end with a 2 by 4 hitting you in the head" I could not give less of a fuck.

Morons (yep, Americans again) that say "edgewise" instead of "edge ways", as in the popular idiom "wouldn't let me get a word in edge ways".

"Explore search interest for Edgewise, Edge ways by time, location and popularity on Google Trends - https://g.co/trends/Xahcc"

It doesn't look like anyone uses "edge ways."

Note: I hate when someone says "I can't get my point in edgewise" but not because it should be "edge ways" but because I do not understand the meaning of "edgewise" or, for the one person that uses it, "edge ways."

Asian prostitutes who advertise in the paper as being hot and busty and 21 years-old, who send extremely enticing pics and txt-spruik that everything is included---showering together, blowjob, sex, kissing, etc.---at a rate of $200/60 min, but in actuality they are totally flat-chested and average-looking and at least 37, and they have to use fucking google translate just to understand the most basic shit being said (except when it comes to ad hoc business enquiries like 'Can I kiss you?' which promptly receive a 'You ca for fifty dolla extra' in reply, any objections to which becoming the victim of further lost-in-translation issues), and pretty much everything about the experience really fucking sucks---a feeling worsened by her hairy armpits and visible C-section scar and the strange latex-ish and moist, pheromonal odour of the place---but because you handed your money over already, you're stuck in this fuck-my-life predicament of having to find some kind of value to it all, which value is ultimately found in a small window of time where none of the above was on your mind thanks to a brief but clearly visualised recollection of two busty lesbians seen on pornhub the week before.
