    One of my favorites: Expecially. There is no "x" in especially.

    Also people say "I could care less," when they really mean "I couldn't care less."

    To which an appropriate reply is the ever-popular "Forget You".

    I will never forget one of my first "tech support/saves" calls with AOL back in the day.

    "Hey Joe, where you from?"
    "I am from Oregin".
    "Oregone, nice!"
    "Boy, it is pronounced Oregin, not Oregone. Oregin ain't going anywhere."
    "ah, thanks."

    yeesh

    I have been known to use the former deliberately. It means the issue is so insignificant that I have not even invested the time/effort to figure out how much I care or don't. That can be different from I have thought about it and I flat out don't care.
