a few (top) language pet peeves of mine

Technology confusion: Actually, I can’t write a few blogs a week, but I can write a few blog posts. Also, I can’t tell you what my e-mail is — unless you’re willing to take a seat, but I can tell you what my e-mail address is.

“Myself”: No, “myself and others” are not going to the store. But, I guess it is possible to pick yourself up when you get there.

Acronym extension: I asked for the closest ATM, not the closest ATM machine — that would be redundant. Also, I am entering my PIN, not my PIN number. Again, redundant.

What are yours?
