You know what irritates me to no end?

The use of the word Appreciate without the preceding pronoun; The assumed “I”.

Person A: “Appreciate your coming in today!”
Person B: “I finished that report for you.”
Person A: “Appreciate it.”

This is not a phrase of thanks, it’s a command. YOU BETTER APPRECIATE THE RIGHT TO COME IN TODAY! YOU BETTER APPRECIATE THIS WORK!

Ugh!

Here’s the kicker: I do this all the time. And EVERY single time I do it, I hate myself.

Anyone else have self-loathing due to a poor grammatical habit?

Every once in awhile you find yourself eating dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets.

For some reason I never realized that the pull tab on a Hershey Kiss allows one to unwrap the candies with great expediency. Up ’till now, I’ve always peeled back the foil by hand.

Over the course of my life, this revelation will most certainly save me hours of time.

Please bioengineer a rabbit that will only eat weeds. Added bonus if you can make it defecate mulch.
