I know this one is 'technically' not incorrect, but I still find it painful.
'Cliche' used as an adjective. (E.g., "That's so cliche!")
I know, I know, I know. It is a past participle in French, and therefore probably MORE correct than 'cliched', but I grew up with 'cliched' and seeing 'cliche' everywhere now (as it does seem to be a new thing) is killing me.
And on the same note (and these ones can't get off on a technicality):
"I know I'm bias" and "I don't want to be prejudice" = all wrong!
It's 'biased' and 'prejudiced' - you can't BE the nouns. Unless you're really biased. "I'm so biased, I AM bias!" That would probably work.

One of my very close friends uses 'seen' instead of 'seeing'. It drives me batty but I can't correct her as she has low self esteem and it would mortify her.
'I went to the shops today but was unable to buy anything seen as the line was so long'.

I corrected a close friend the other day, he said 'so the other day I done blah blah blah'
I said 'you DID blah blah blah - I'm correcting DS1 on that at the moment, sorry'
He looked at me like I was STUPID and said 'nah, it's past tense therefore it's done'
I said 'no, you HAVE done it, or you DID it'. And he ARGUED WITH ME

"What time shell we meet you?"
To all of my 'scouser' cousins - it is my son Joe Bloggs, not "me Joe" or even worse "our Joe".
Your status updates hurt my eyes.

Punkin is not a vegetable, it is called a Pumpkin, please name it appropriately.
The name of our country is Australia, not 'Straya. Please do not make our bogan reputation any worse than what it already is.
