Most annoying mispronunciation you encounter daily?

by LucidDreamer on July 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I am not really too hung up on stuff like this....I get lots of words wrong when I say them (even more when I spell them). That being said, I have three "superiors" at work that insist on pronouncing libraries as "lye-berries"...sounds like a toxic fruit. The way they use it in a sentence is even more annoying: "We'll have to close some of them lye-berries - folks just don't need them anymore." (....actual quote....)
