Partial List of Self Evident Usage Annoyances

Some things require no explanation. Below is a partial list. I swear to God, these things have been uttered by ADULTS:
  1. Espresso ordered as eXpresso
  2. suppose-UBLY
  3. I bought it with me;
  4. boughtEN, as in, "I had boughten it when I was in the City..";
  5. boughtenED, same example, but far worse because the person who says boughtenED clearly believes boughtenED to be the correct form of boughtEN.
  6. Thank you for taking my call

More to come, I'm sure.
