Oh, and then there are those that don't know "relative" from "relevant"... saying "It's all relevant, isn't it ?"

I heard "it's power for the course" a while back

I have also seen in-writing several times this month

"direct line of site"

I used to work with an indian guy who inadvertently got a few english sayings mixed up.

'Top of the notch' and 'happy as a larry boy' were a couple of my favourites.

Many many people are on "tender hooks" or say exetera rather than pronounce the first t.

'On route' amuses me too.

Done.

The American "I could care less" makes me want to go on a killing spree.

Someone the other day was talking about "sentient points"; I assume he meant "salient points". :lol:

Oh and my favourite which is from a Czech friend: (while in the middle of an argument) "GET OUT OF MY EYES MATE!!" instead of get out of my face" :lol:

Aaahh, don't remind me, that one really gets my back up. You get people who really should know better saying it as well.

Being a foreigner the missus comes out with some gems, but they're still in the cute phase and haven't moved into the annoying phase (yet).:lol:
