    DH and I make a list of the things we see!

    "He's" instead of "his"
    "Nip it in the butt"
    "Flaunt with danger"
    "Congradulations"
    "Chester drawers" (a friend told me about this one last night)
    "Fopa" instead of "faux pas"

    Those are all I can think of off the top of my head! "He's" instead of "his" is probably the one that bugs me most. I see it ALL the time! Oh and because it's Bub Hub:

    "I'm feeling nauseous" instead of "I'm feeling nauseated". That's rampant in the pregnancy world. If you're feeling nauseous it basically means you're making other people sick lol!

    I confuse nauseous and nauseated all the time. My brain just can't get them straight, and I have to keep looking up the definitions.


    Ones I find frustrating are:-

    "pacific" instead of "specific"
    "prolly", "proberly", or even "properly" instead of "probably"

    Oooooh, I hate those too!

    To be honest, if you never use "nauseous" again, you'll probably be safe. The correct use would be to say "this shrimp is nauseous" meaning that it's making you feel sick. I don't think I've ever seen someone use it in that way. Most people say "this shrimp is making me nauseous" but they mean "it's making me nauseated". So yeah, simply switch nauseous for nauseated and you'll be fine.

    YES!!! These!

    Also frofy instead of Frothy when referring to beer.

    On real housewives of Melbourne one of them said about another wife - she's always had my bag. Instead of she always has my back.

    Lydia came up with a doozie too but now I've forgotten.

    I have read all of the replies and could not help myself from replying! It is dilemma of course! I am a university teacher (and a picky marker when it comes to spelling and grammar). I have seen it all and I have to say that in 10 years of marking assignments I have never seen dilemma as 'dilemna'. So this was very surprising to me. And stupidly annoying too!
    Not spelling related - but I absolutely hate it when people say everything (and other 'thing' words) as everythink. Totally grates.

    Yes!! This.

    Although I always thought it was Berenstein Bears, the real spelling looks completely wrong to me
