The word "available." It doesn't roll off the tongue easily, and I avoid that word at all costs.

"Dollop".

It sounds like a noise you'd make when you're trying not to barf.

Come to think of it, I also have problems pronouncing available. I usually insert a Y sound into it that really isn't supposed to be there. Other words I have trouble pronouncing are comfortable/uncomfortable and world.

I work in a grocery store. Every time I face the sour cream I'm thinking "what a stupid word..."

I don't like "Login" when it's used as a verb. As a noun, it's fine, but as a verb, it's just wrong, it should say "Log in," instead. It just annoys me. Probably cause when I see it, it means I have to enter a username and password and be at risk of mistyping it. If it says "Log in," instead, I'm not as annoyed.

Well, that's got to be unpleasant. Kind of comes up a lot; at least once a week.

I especially hate the word "rubbish" when my mum says it. I hate it being said in her accent.

Yes, this is one of those things that I see wrong more often than I see it used correctly. People can't seem to grasp words that can be one word or two depending on how they're used. See: every day, everyday.

I'm tired of hearing the terms "sociopath" and "psychopath." Those terms are used too broadly these days.

So is "borderline."

And yet I often say "Anymore," instead of "Any more," but only when I'm referring to actions I no longer do, and not to the lack of something I have left.

One wonders what sort of condiments you're supposed to put on an ass-burger.
