    When that guitar finally arrives, please Lord in perfect condition, I for one will give mad props.

    Not sure I know that last one… the second offspring of Azathoth maybe?

    Things-to-stop-saying-in-2019 :

    1 - "I'll stop to buy or build guitars."
    2 - "I'll stop to buy or build amps."
    3 - "I'll stop to buy or build pedals."
    4 - "I'll stop to play in a band".

    But it's me, OK ? :D

    "I'm sorry if anyone was offended." - a weaselly non-apology. It means, "I'm not sorry I said or did it, I'm sorry somebody got upset," which blames the other person. Either truly apologize or stand by what you said and take the heat.

    I have a few that bug me, but I'm willing to let them all go as long as people just say whatever they like in a normal, indoor voice. Please, just stop yelling all the time! Excited or nervous yelling is just as loud as upset/angry yelling. I'm part man and part twitchy dog so loud noises upset and terrify me.

    Inside voices only in 2019 please.

    Or replies 'and I clearly stated...' then proceeds to deliver a muddy unclear reply.

    Can we stop saying 'mid century' when referring to the 1950s. I fear it's snobbish and pseudo intellectual. Instead of saying 'fifties' which may imply that you sit around watching Happy Days and drive a pink Cadillac.

    Pet peeve---a podium is something you stand ON, not behind. That's called a lectern. They're not interchangeable. Every newscaster wrong.

    You is not an acceptable replacement for your or you're. People need to learn the proper versions of there/their/they're; and your/you're/yore; to/too/two etc.

    I've seen did'nt too often as well. I can accept these errors from someone who isn't fluent in English, but, for a native English speaker, it's unacceptable.

    Debacle is supposed to rhyme with spectacle, monocle, pinnacle, oracle, and barnacle. Show me one word that rhymes with Dee-BOCK-ul.

    Why is the abbreviation for number No.? There's no O in number unless you're speaking Spanish. It should be Nr., the same as it is in German.

    I have to say that two that really bug me from the US side of the pond that are over this side more and more are Nucular for Nuclear and Axe for Ask.

    Boss got us all pagers in the '80s. He expected me to call him long distance while I was on the road, on my dime, whenever he called. I told him if he needed to talk to me that bad he could get me a cell phone---on his dime.

    Thankfully, those mispronunciations aren't all that pervasive.
    Cellphone shorthand! Far too common, innit?

    “Anyways.” Ugh...how many different kinds of anyway are there?

    It’s true we’re in a period of time where offending someone verbally is considered high crime, even when (especially when) the claimed offense is based on an ever-shifting catalog of pathetic petty grievances used as a smokescreen for a kind of not-too-subtle amateur mass behavior modification. I know, politics, but damn, what a really unwholesome situation. :mad:

    You should hear me when one of those thieving bastids with “0% interest credit” or a warrant for my arrest for tax evasion calls. The offensiveness gets pretty creative. :D

    I'm impatient with folk who use the word "unpack" when they're referring to examining ideas, or concepts.
