I think what he means is people who say "should of" instead of "should've" which is short for "should have." like someone might say " I should of bought that today," which doesn't make sense.

I hate villains who monologue. I recently finished the first draft of a novel, and I made sure that nobody could accuse my villains of monologuing and giving the characters time to get their shit together. Any time the heroes slightly let their guard down, one of them died.

stating "Now" before an explanation.

"now, it must be known that..." T_T

In my opinion It gives the impression that the author is pontificating upon their own thoughts, which does not belong in any professional work, unless of course it is a character in a story doing the pontificating.

Or gar-rar-ge instead of garage. Where's that extra R coming from?

Anyway, my biggest linguistical pet peeve is when someone refers to a drawer as a draw. Example: "Please put your freshly laundered clothes in your draw." I also can't stand people who use is instead of are. Example: "Did you check to see if the clothes is dry?" Oddly enough, my MIL and SIL are guilty of doing both and I can't correct them because it's rude.

I also hated the phrase, "It is what it is". It's such a cop out phrase.

There is going to be a slight pause because two syllables. Also the s at the end of pains has more of a z sound to it than that at the beginning of staking. Also the whole point of this thread is that we are all right.

Interesting, I never really looked into what that term meant. I'm surprised that people say "painstaking" regularly enough that it's become a source of jimmie-rustling for you.
I get really fatigued by people throwing around words like "spiritual", "blessed", "holistic", and the like, particularly if used to denote one thing or action as "more spiritual" than another. It isn't these words themselves that irritate me but the smug attitude that often seems to surround them.
These conversations also seem to involve a lot of fancy language and references that one doubts the speaker understands to any meaningful degree.
Certainly I'm guilty of this myself, but more often in writing than in daily conversation (as this post is likely evidence of).
