I like her term better. Of course, I believe gynecologists should be called groinocologists.

One of my patients told me the dermatologist had "done an autopsy on that rash."

A jackass I work with has had a big discussion about "power cord" with me. (Paracord). He must have said it 20 times, and I didn't bother correcting him.

A member of management has recently sent emails pertaining to "Year in" (year end).

My Dad is 66 and recently tried "Roman Numerals" for the first time and he really likes them. It took a few seconds to realize he was talking about "Ramen noodles." I felt bad for laughing so hard at him.

I want to punch people when they say flustrated. I'm glad I'm not the only one who is annoyed by these things. I hear all intensive purposes, could care less, irregardless, mute point and a bunch of others mentioned all the time. But what is really nails on a chalkboard for me is misuse of seen, as in, I seen Bill at the store. No, you SAW him. It just sounds so redneck to say seen, not to mention it is incorrect.

ETA: I heard a woman a few months ago talking about the end of the physical year. She said physical year instead of fiscal over and over, it was driving me nuts.

I think you're looking for "parthian," and "parting shot" is actually the older term.

True story.
Link Posted: 12/10/2011 10:11:57 AM EDT
A friend of mine was dating a girl for a while before he ever met her parents. She invited him over for dinner with the warning; "My dad often uses the wrong words while speaking, and, gets upset if you point it out or laugh, so DON'T!"

During dinner, the dad is asked about his dentist visit that day. He says, "Oh, it was just for a cleaning, but the dentist said I had a heavy build up of plankton."

He said his girl friend and mother both looked at him with that, "If you laugh, your dead" look, and he must have turned all shades of red from not breathing trying not to.
