"New and improved" *head bang* puh leeees
Using the word 'went' instead of 'said'. 'The little girl went, "oh no!"' for example. Went where?)
"Needless to say" not exactly bad grammar, but annoying.
Incorrect possesives, such as "There's some brownies in the fridge"

Yours?

There, their.....a never ending saga there - or is it their?!?!?  
wander, wonder.......  You WANDER(physically) around, and you wonder(in your mind) if things will happen.

Double negatives....ugh....  "I don't got none."  "I don't want nothing."

I hate it when people misspell thing on purpose because they think it is cute, like "cuz wuz pepl dis teh moi luv"; and so on. Then when they try to formulate a sentence it is completely incoherent and makes absolutely no sense at all.

And for the love of all that is good in this world NEVER, not EVER, must someone say the done seen something.

I keep seeing this and it is making me homicidal.

You may have seen a thing.  Or you might see something.  But you do not need to say I seen that over thar.  

I can put up with most everything else.  Just not this.

How about people write their plurals with an apostrophe; such as
 dog's instead of dogs
horse's instead of horses

What DID you guys do in school during English class?

Apostrophes in the wrong place! Do people not understand the point of an apostrophe? I see Class of 95' a lot.

The word prolly makes me want to slap someone.

The sale/sell confusion is right up there with a nuclear physics thesis to many.

My pet peeve is bad grammar in professional settings. It doesn't bother me in texts or message boards but if I'm reading a newspaper, magazine or a professional web page, or formal letters I expect proper grammar.

I try not to worry about what other folks do or dont do.  Simply a waste of time and effort.
