My roommate says STFU like "Stu-Fu" and uses "teh" in everyday talk. I cringe and die a little inside everytime he says it. :(

I never use CTRL ALT DEL anymore. I used to a lot with Windows 98 because it was instant, but if Windows XP starts locking up, CTRL ALT DEL isn't going to do jack - it just slows it down more. Shame.

When the pronunciation of acronyms goes too far.

For example pronouncing NEC as "neck" and CRT as "curt".

"What kind of monitor do you have?"

"A Neck Curt."

"Huh? I didn't ask you what you did to yourself in soccer practice!"

(Even more confusion prevails).

Oh and these SAS drives! People calling the hosts SASSY controllers. Now that's just plain ridiculous!
