One of my favorites - ‘needs restored’.

How about “gone thru”.... meaning exactly what?

"Gone thru", a tunnel

"Gone thru", a car wash

"Gone thru", the wall of my house

"Gone thru", a whole s**tpot of my money, with NO results

To the Craigslist sellers.......... It's a corn stalk not a stock. And it's a hay bale not a bail. 

I dated a city girl who called them hay balls.

Or through. But hey, who's being picky?

What agitates me (and I see it a lot here) is when something "needs painted" or "needs fixed". It's like nails on a chalkboard.

An item "needs fixing" or "needs to be fixed". Your elementary school teachers are rolling in their graves. And if they're not dead yet, don't let them see your terrible grammar. They'll shoot themselves; their lives are a sham.

Years ago when I was doing work for some defense contractors I somehow got shipped off to DC to listen to a bunch of Georgetown lawyers explain why I should always use terms like "could" or "can" and NEVER use terms like "would" or "will". The session had absolutely nothing to do with what I was doing, but it was interesting and gave some insight into legal speak. I still think about that sometimes when dealing with legal stuff.

I work with lawyers all day long. Getting things accomplished is SOO effing hard, on account of their commitment issues.

Ok, makes sense now. Familiar with the pronunciation, not the spelling!

A couple of my pets:

Weather guy or babe saying "normal" instead of "average".  In the midwest, and I'm sure many other places, normal is not average, and average is not normal.

"reach out"  -  we used to call, or get in contact, or write, but now we just reach out.  I can picture George Carlin doing a bit on that.

...if he has manicured   facial hair...designer sunglasses...knows a lot about nothing....and wears to work, pants that look like pyjama pants....once you would have laughed...but the reality is that you really have to 'metaphorically ", cry......because it is my observation that those ''males'' are certainly not about to become the salvation of mankind.....

Farm Show magazine IS the print equivalent of yt.com

I had been there a long time and I thought they were just like anyone else, but after the last week and a half watching them gang-bang this guy because he was building an H to burn kerosene, just to run once in a while; he was sticking to his guns and they just kept flogging him.  If, somehow, this topic could be transplanted over there, with all those grammar school drop-outs, it would be roundly criticized, called the “English Police”, or simply taken as a personal affront. Really disappointed in that crew this time.

And, I doubt IF 99 percent of those twits "flogging him", know that "kerosene", is basically tractor fuel, or distillate, and that gasoline came about long after tractors were BUILT to run on any of the low-grade fuels.

"Ducknose Bob", and "Abdul and his Seven Goats" gave up on yt.stewpid long ago.
