    YES! Moet is the WORST! I worked at a bar and this conversation would happen constantly:

    "Hello sir, here's your bottle of Moet."
    "Hahaha, you mean my Mow-ee?" (All smug and smart-ar$e like)
    *sigh*

    And one that causes me dilemmas:

    Moet & Chandon.

    Correction pronunciation is mow-ett and sha-ndon - NOT moe-ay. Mr Moet, who founded it, was French but his family was Dutch and his name pronounced Mow-ett.

    Because it's champagne, people try to pronounce it in the French way.

    So, my dilemma is that every time I hear "Mow-ay" (or, worse, "Mow-ee") it makes me twitch, as I know that it's "Mow-ett." But EVERYONE says "Mow-ay", and if I say "Mow-ett" then (a) Everyone will think I'm an idiot and have it wrong, (b) It might open up a conversation where I have to explain it, and then everyone thinks I'm all pretentious.

    That one LITERALLY kills me. Thank God it's not my favourite champagne...
    Wow I always questioned Moët I thought it was said moe ett but get corrected to mow-ey

    I say "I'm going to make a 'baby Expresso'"... Meaning I'm off to express for my baby. I think it's a cute thing to say but a nurse corrected me saying "It's 'expressing' not 'espresso'" She didn't get me at all... :/

    I hate when people say ONvelope instead of ENvelope... Grrrrr. As someone whose daughter is called SiENna I find it annoying when people don't pronounce sounds correctly. Sienna is often called see-anner... WTF?! Worst culprit - her sister. *sigh*

    People saying "Ralph Law-renn" for Ralph Lauren. It's pronounced "Lorren" like the first name Lauren. It's like Moet, everyone thinks they're being all cool and French but they're actually just flagging their ignorance.
