    Default *spin off* what mispronounced words drive you mad

    Yeah I know shedule v skedule isn't a mispronounciation really.... I just don't like shedule.

    I am not an Aussie so am used to getting a bit of stick for saying things a bit funny

    I say appre-she-ate and cannot stand when I hear appre-sea-ate. Its normally on movies that I hear it the wrong-but-probably-right way and it bugs me every time.
