    "Stay-Cation"
    When the media finds a new word for something they hammer it into the ground. Just come out and say it... Americans are too broke to take a VACATION so they are staying home!!!!

    I hear on commercials "avaidable". I thought all these years it was available?

    My brother over uses "I digress".

    My husband says "I'll tell you the truth" when he is about to say an opinion. Jeez, after five years I believed he was always telling the truth.

    And my pet peeve? When people say "we're pregnant". No she is pregnant, you buddy are not. You are having to deal with her being pregnant but you are not pregnant.

    Pedle for pedal.

    And, yes, nucular. I heard it from an engineer supposebly (haha that one is funny) trained in "nucular engineering," couldn't believe my ears.

    Surrealistic. "Surreal" is usually quite sufficient.
    Same thing with minimalistic. Minimal usually works fine. This one is ironic to boot, because the word minimalistic is hardly minimal.

    Loose instead of lose....as in "I don't want to lose my shirt".

    Folage or foilage instead of foliage, as in Autumn foliage.

    Putting apostrophes in plurals where they don't belong, as in "My bike's are for sale."

    I also am annoyed that the quaint old term "buck naked" has now apparently been changed to "butt naked".

    Yeah I laugh at peddle instead of pedal too.
    But I'll confess- the other day I had typed "handelbars" instead of handlebars. I caught it just before I posted it though! I attribute it to too much exposure to classical music in my youth.

    Overuse of business phrases such as "touch base" or "proactive" to make yourself sound more important than you are...

    The overuse of the word "like" by young women. I'm like so like over that.

    "old school"
    "sick" to describe something cool
    "my bad"
    "wicked"

    I actually saw a jewelry store once that had a big fancy sign hanging out front that said "JEWLERY". Unbelievable!

    Flustrated.

    Although you can see how that word came about...
    "My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved;I have been given much and I have given something in return...Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and an adventure."

    Lead in place of led -- as in "I led the herd to the dessert table."

    "Employee's Only" -- ARGH! Enough already! Can someone please learn to correctly use an apostrophe?!
