TinTin instead of Tintin. Makes it sound like a Chinese knockoff.
TO me Tintin isn't nostalgic since I was only introduced to him after I had kids.

Agh. That one is a serious one. I am sure if sensors were attached to my body, it could easily be detected when I hear that one (unfortunately way too often, including from my own family).

Can't compare a typo to ignorance.

See what happens to my body when I hear or read about a fence being referred to as a gate?

I knew it was no comparison, and I make that mistake way to many times myself - but I just could not resist.
Yes, that "to" is intentional

Most annoying thing, especially since the transaction amount is included in the balance.
