Do common grammar mistakes made universally annoy you such as using "I" when "Me" is correct as in "He invited Charlie and I for a drink" or "There's" in the singular when "There're" is correct as in the common habit people have in saying "There's people watching you". Even commentators on the ABC commonly make these mistakes.
