    Anyways- Is this correct? So many people I know say this that I am beginning to second guess myself.

    No. Not grammatically correct.
    I think it would go in a slang basket though. I think most people knew it was incorrect when people started using it.

    What about 'I could/can care less'

    Isn't the term 'I couldn't care less'?

    Every time I read it I'm going, COULDN'T in my head.

    Default Effect vs affect

    I'm sure these words (affect and effect) must have been mentioned already in the thread. These two words must be the most common incorrectly used words. My daughter's teacher made this error in a letter addressed to the parents. Surely she would've proof-read the letter before sending it out. I think it's a case of her not knowing the difference between the two.

    effect (noun)
    affect (verb)

    Walked into my local library, where my Mother works, to see a sign boldly stating:

    What's your favorite book?

    With about 3 paragraphs below it. Now, if that weren't bad enough, it stated favorite again, and then further below it said favourite twice. So even the author of the sign clearly had no idea one way or another. I told my Mum it looks really bad in a library, and she agreed but didn't want to step on the authors toes. Sheesh, I hate the fact that we are so happy to take on the Americanized (I wanted to spell that with an 's', google spell checker said no) form of words.
