    Oh another - A friend of mine pronounces Frappé as Frap, it's so so so annoying! Everytime we go get a coffee he says Frap and they always say you mean Frappé? And he'll respond yeah, a Frap

    alot. No, it's a lot. "Alot" is not a word! Check the freakin' dictionary!

    Muggaccino. Oh that does my head in. It's a style of serving espresso coffee called cappuccino, and it's in a mug. That does not make it a damn muggaccino!!!

    Equally infuriating is someone ordering multiple cups of cappuccino:[bogan voice] I'll have two cups of chino, thanks darl[/bogan voice]

    Aaaaargh!!!!

    Both are actually correct, I've seen sources that indicate that circle may even predate cycle . ETA: Oxford lists both, but "cycle" redirects to the main entry, which is "circle"... http://oxforddictionaries.com/defini...=vicious+cycle

    "Trooper" is correct is you want to imply bravery, however "trouper" implies that someone co-operates, buckles down and gets the job done, which is what the phrase is generally intended to mean. I agree it's not cut and dried, but the accepted meaning is almost always "trouper".

    Oh you so need to read this .

    And I also despise "muggaccino"! I have actually asked for a large cappuccino and had waitresses speak to me like I'm a child... "Oh, you mean a muggaccino?". NO I DO NOT!

    I've heard someone in a business meeting say "So if I'm to read between the legs...". I had to try so hard to muffle my laughter.And hate "arks" instead of ask.

    Good grammar is the difference between knowing your $hit and knowing you're $hit.
