People will say something stupid like, "he literally scared me to death!" I just wanna yell out, "gee that's funny 'cause you're still here!"

The other one i've noticed being screwed up more often than not lately is then/than. It seems that people forget about the word 'than' and just use 'then' for everything. There IS a difference folks.
