From Formspring: What is your biggest pet peeve? Something that makes you want to pull your hair out?

Use of the following alleged words or phrases:

Irregardless - NOT a WORD!

Could Care Less - It's "couldn't care less." If you COULD care less, it means you care to some degree.

At this point in time - Unless you are giving a lecture on temporal physics, don't say this.

Get-r-done - Was never funny.

More/Most Unique - Unique means one of a kind, nothing else like it. Something is either unique or not.

Mankind - I don't give a rats ass about political correctness, but it annoys me when people say this when they could easily say "humankind."

Antisocial - Commonly misused when people mean asocial, as in refusing to socialize. An asocial person stays in his room during the party. An antisocial person burns down the house.
