    There are certain things that drive us all batty. We call them button pushers. What is your number one button pusher? I absolutely hate hearing the phrase "At the end of the day...". One more, just to get this threat rolling, I also hate it when you are talking to somebody and every other thing coming out of their mouth is the phrase "You know what I'm talking about?" These two things get on my nerves worst than somebody dragging finger nails down a chalk board. What's your biggest button pusher?

    People like Edthecynic and drsmith1072 who don't have the wherewithal to defend their positions but can only fall back on the ever popular (for them) "you are a liar" defense of their ever so intelligent (in their minds) positions. Of course no one ever really knows what their positions are because the only statements they know how to make is "you are a liar".

    The word "anyway" when it ends with the letter 'S'.

    Anyways?

    Grammar, spelling, sentence structure, phonics... it's all out the window these days.

    Gutter talk, gangster slang, vernacular unbecoming of proper tongue.

    Uneducated oral effluent.
