I hate when people call purses "pocketbooks"!! I hate when people say "sneakers", your wearing tennis shoes no one has woren sneakers since the 80's! Theres more but I can't think of them right now.

 to me its a backpack especially if u are not using it for books..lol..its annoying when ppl say pop but i dont really care..a pocketbook it something different than a purse to me (its like a wallet)..and i agree they are not sneakers..um i hate the word preggo, it reminds me of the sauce and i am not a sauce..preggers is ok i guess, but still fairly annoying..i cant really think of any words that get to me..hmm..

"HUH" drives me crazy!!!! My 3 year old son says it constantly and I could pull my hair out. But if I hear an adult say it I get so irritated... Theres more but I cant think right now. Thats funny you said backpacks and pop I say both but the pop thing is more dependent on where you live I am from western PA and thats all its called.... lol

As with the above posters...I used Backpacks, not book bags in school and I drink pop, not soda. It's all where you were raised :)

I don't care for the word sneaker :P. I don't like the word "species." It sounds weird to me:P. I don't like the word "hate" and try to never use it.

On top of that, I do bite my tongue constantly so I don't correct people's grammar :).

I'm just the oppositite. It drives me crazy to hear book bag or soda... Soda is for baking lol. I think that has something to due to where ya grew up.
