    Almost, but not quite, as annoying as people who end their sentences with the illiterate "my bad". That really gets on my cosmic goatee I can tell you.

    I hate bloody americans and the way they emphasise everything as if its a question.

    Also when talking about cooking they use 'make' far too much, like 'make chicken' or 'make dinner'

    "Would of" rather than "would have" seems to be becoming universal and is my personal bugbear. I predict the sad day when it becomes accepted as correct grammar.

    My bad, I like to think of myself as young and cutting edge and like to think I can use the vanaculer as part of that. Go figure!

    Yes, I for one am completely f**ked off with it.

    It sounds so much worse when British people say these americanisms as well. It's like we're trying to lose our own identity to that of some generic US sitcom.
