Most annoying mispronunciation you encounter daily?

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....)
