I must agree with the folks at Oxford:

1 - At the end of the day
2 - Fairly unique
3 - I personally
4 - At this moment in time
5 - With all due respect
6 - Absolutely
7 - It’s a nightmare
8 - Shouldn’t of [OMG THIS ONE IS SO WRONG MY EYEBALLS ARE BLEEDING]
9 - 24/7
10 - It’s not rocket science

Please add "could care less" and "irregardless," please. So incorrect I could scream.

Ha! I was just about to reply with that one too. I hate "it is what it is."

I think I'm adding the misuses of "their," "there" and "they're" as well. WE HATESES THAT WE DO!

At this moment in time i personally find this list fairly unique. however i would like to state Absolutely that it's a nightmare of a language irregardless of what authorities say. It is what it is, It's not rocket science with all due respect but it would require study 24/7 365 for a hens age to get it all down right. and at the end of the day i could care less so long as what i say is understood.

...AN historic...

Last time I checked the letter H was still a consonant and the average American politician, newscaster, random person on the street was not pre-elocution Eliza Doolittle!

While one might celebrate an occasion, one often more enthusiastically celebrates a historic occasion. A not an. A!!!!

I hate "for lack of a better term" and people using "mad" instead of "angry."

I find I use "ostensibly" a lot, which I probably shouldn't.

When I was marking papers for a Canadian Literature class, I knew that any paper that began with the words "From the beginning of time..." was going to be trouble.

I wanted to say, "For fuck's sake, you're reviewing Sinclair Ross's As For Me And My House, not the Mahabharata."
