Words and Phrases that Make Me Cringe IV

Someone in my family has revealed he hates 'tidbit', when not spelt with three 't's. As I endured regular trips to UK garden centres in my adolescence with a parent who thought there was nothing so hilarious as pointing out the 'tit boxes' they always had for sale, I sympathise with the wowsers who go with the 'd' spelling of 'titbit' (although I have to admit it is a bit of a dainty word, with slight hints of doily about it - some might say it was a 'tad' dainty.)
