Ugh! Freaking Southern grammar

I love living in the South. I really do. I'm not even an expert grammaticist.  But there are a few phrases and words that drive me up the wall and now my kindergartner is saying one- "might could". It makes me want to poke myself in the eye with a fork. It's not ''might could''. It's either "might" or "could" but NOT BOTH! GAH!  What regional phrases or words drive you nuts?

cum

Shit drives me crazy.

My dad called me last week asking if I wanted any pers I said no I don't need any tires. Then after some back and forth confusion I finally figured out he was asking if I wanted some fresh picked pears

it's Y'ALL!

and it is the single most awesome contraction ever derived in the english language, y'all.
