My MIL says "supposubly". I desperately want to correct her---but I also want her to like me!

    Around here, lots of people say WalmartS instead of walmart and they say they "heerd" you instead of heard you. Oh, and they seen it, not saw it. LMBO

    My mother says "attitoot" as in you have a bad "attitoot" today. My husband thought the words to one line of the children's song This Little Light of Mine were "hide it under a bushel note". He also gets things to eat from the "fridgilator".

    I know lots of people that say "alltimers" instead of Alzheimer's. And Grand -MIL says "her" instead of "she" "is her asleep? What is her doing?" It drives me freaking insane. But not quite as bad as when she calls my DD "it." "Aww, it just wants to go outside and play!" Grrrrr!!

    There is not a single one of these that I don't hear weekly from someone LMAO

    **Irregardless**

    "Hope" instead of 'help'
    Climbed with a short 'i' sound
    'of an evening'
    'frashlight' instead of 'flashlight'
    'cut' instead of 'turn' or 'switch' ... cut off the light, cut off the TV.... I'm sorry, where's the knife?
    DH calls grill cheese sandwiches 'cheese toast' which drives me nuts, because any sane person knows those are two different things.
    He also refers to bath towels as hand towels....also two different things.

    There are more, but I can't think of them right now.

    I dislike the word "finna" as in, "I'm finna go to the store." UGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Or when someone says woke instead of awake, as in "You was woke?" instead of "you were awake?" Oh, and also the use of 'was' instead of 'were.'

    My DH says itch instead of scratch, 'itch my back.'
    I also can't stand the seen vs saw, were vs was. My coworker always screws that up, she also says 'it don't work,' no no it DOESN'T work, and 'my car is broke!' to which I really want to say 'OMG! Your car has no money?! Sad!'

    Dh grows "cantaropes" instead of cantaloupes. My mother eats "breffis" instead of breakfast, goes to the "liberry" instead of the library, and has "cuzints" rather than cousins. My uncles wife has childern instead of children. Where the hell does that t come from?! Seen vs saw, were vs was, & WalmartS are irritating the crap out of me here, too! MIL mispronounces DD's name, which is a simple & fairly common name. Idk if she does it in purpose or because she just can't say it correctly. She's had 16 years to work on it and still…

    I'm 8:24. The comment about the mystery T was referring to Mom's cuzints.
    Also, like 6:45, I get my "trash fix" every once in awhile and it drives me insane when the people on the show call him "Murray" ugh!

    My BFF's mom says "Indiana-apolis" and also adds the s to Walmart. Unless there are two of them and you're going to both, you are not going to the WalmartS. She doesn't do it with target or any other store, just Walmart.
    She also says "the sugar" for diabetes. "He has the sugar. I can't eat that because of the sugar." Makes me nuts!

    Re: close the light/TV. That's a French sentence construction. I know, because just about every English speaker here in Montreal says it. Drives me insane. Even my daughter says it, and she's only just learning French. AARGH!

    My family says 'cut it off' and 'cut it on' too. Of course, we live in MS, so that's really minor compared to some of the butchery that is done to the English language here...

    My mom is from the south. She doesn't have an accent but she KILLS a couple words and we just laugh. "Oil" comes out like "all", "for" comes out like "fah" which has us in tears when she says "What did you do that fah?" And according to my sisters she says "pure" really strange but she won't say it if you ask her too and I can never catch her saying it. A lot of the PP said some of the others that drive me nuts like the "itch" for "scratch" and the ValentiMe's Day... oy it wears me out. Complected for complexion is another one too... argh!!!!

    God. I get people asking me to say oil all the damn time LMAO Apparently, I have a perfectly delightful Southern accent... that people like to make fun of. Just because I talk slowly doesn't mean my brain functions slowly too.

    My friends from the north say things like 'You wanna go with?' ... I'm sorry, do I want to go with WHO ? Who's going somewhere and where are we goin' ?
    And 'Can you borrow me a dollar?' Nope, but I'll be glad to loan you one.

    My husband and MIL randomly add an Irish accent to their speech-it's hilarious!
    My grandpa says 'fixin' as in 'I'm fixin' to go to the store.' He also says whenever a baby is crying that it 'swelled up like a tick.' He calls his wife 'fat mama' and will shout for her in stores this way. I've even heard him say 'ya-unt-to' for 'you want to.' It's too much really :)
