Grammatical mistakes.

I was a fairly decent English student, and I can't stand it when people can't conjugate or spell properly. I understand it if English is not your first language, or the person in question has not completed their schooling, but otherwise it gets on my nerves! To think that a person who has gone to school for so many years and cannot use English properly really rubs me the wrong way.

Number one annoyance in grammatical mistakes: the incorrect usage of apostrophes. They're used everywhere! Even when someone is trying to make something plural. If it is plural, it does NOT require an apostrophe!!!

Okay, I'm finished ranting. I feel better now.

For all contact wearers, sometimes when you first put your contacts in in the morning and your eyes sting beyond all logical reason for a fifteen second period until you realize that you applied the contact over an eyelash. That's the worst.

I'd like to thank you on behalf of the group, and hope we pass the audition.

No the worst is when it's overly dry and you have your contacts in and you keep having to ask to be excused from to put them back in until your mom can deliver your glasses. That stinks.

I hate like hell when people say something is interesting when it is obvious they don't like it and don't want to admit it. Just admit you don't like the thing in question without calling it interesting. Everybody can see through that tired old ploy.

I also hate the classic "I have a friend who...(fill in the problem" when it is obvious the speaker is making a self reference. This is an obvious dodge and ploy and I wish it would be retired.
