Anyway, I don't like that word

By
Real Estate Broker with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

I have noticed that I hear "anyways" more and more often.  This is NOT a word.  "Anyway" is an actual word.  I am surprised by how often I hear this.  I even corrected our title agency rep once in order to help her seem more professional, because she was using "anyways". 

Another interesting thing that I recently discussed with my wife - have you noticed that "I could care less" is used as much as "I couldn't care less"?  Only one of them is correct, right?  If you say that you could care less, it means you do care at least a little, and that is clearly not what is meant.

There are a lot of common grammar mistakes and misspellings in the MLS as well, such as "hugh" for "huge".  Any others that you would like to share?

'As per,'  drives me nuts!! 

'Per our conversation...'  not  'As per our conversation..." !!!

Thanks, Jason, for a little chance to vent!

ALAN - That is another one that bugs me.

LAURIE - You may have noticed that this post was one of my first, written back in mid-August.  "As per" is pretty bad!

Jason...anyways, supposively I could care less. Just kidding! One saying that my brother in law brought up to me is when people say "take that ________ out of the freezer so it UNTHAWS". UNthaws? Really? It's a double-negative. What you want it to do is THAW...UNthawing is actually freezing it again, right?

LINDA - "Whatever" only bothers me when it is overused.  Same with "it is what it is".

KIM - Unthawing is funny.  What about the fact that flammable and inflammable mean exactly the same thing.  Weird!
