How about misspelled words or phrases? People writing 'should of' instead of 'should have' should go back to grade school.

How do you pronounce "countenance"? "Mountain"?

Yeah, they get confused because of the contraction "should've" sounding like "should of."

I hate it whenever anybody mispronounces anything.

Most recent example was a friend saying 'assuage' as 'uh-swaj'.

I nearly drove my car off the road.
