As was in Steeler's cartoon strip, "supposably" is one of the commonly used words that is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I HATE it when people say that. I'm not perfect, but "supposably" makes people sound completely stupid.
I've also heard many people refer to a Dachshund (as in the wiener dog), as a "Datsun" or "Dotson." I've had to correct people so many times on that. "A dachshund is a dog, a Datsun is a car."
Growing up amongst the Tex-mex culture in San Antonio, I have heard so many errors in the English language, some of you would have had a coronary if I listed them all. Beatnik probably understands this all too well, since he is pretty close (Austin). I usually let most things slide, but sometimes, people do need to be corrected to prevent further embarrassment. I only correct my closest friends, though.
