    I could ‘of’ gone, (or more likely I could ‘have’ gone!)

    ‘Breaks’ – instead of ‘brakes’

    It seems no-one now knows when to use ‘their’ or ‘there.’

    ‘waiting on’ instead of ‘waiting for’. Waiters and waitresses are the only ones who ‘wait on’.
    ‘How are you?’ ‘I’m good’. No, we are not talking about your behaviour, we are talking about your well being. Should be ‘I’m very well thank you.’
