As long as it's not like French where it's like << so you were saying ? >> I can't believe it !

It's almost like C;) (or perhaps C++)

That's why Hungarian is a LOT worse:

"I'm always putting my eineklach in the oven, a batch of rugulach."

or even worse...

"Cut me up, and schmear me up, and throw me down the stairs, a piece of bread and butter."
I'd always assumed that syntax was translated from Yiddish.  I'm glad to learn it's Hungarian.
My favorite cause: cssy.org

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.

(In board game media, I've occasionally encountered "depends" instead of "determines," with
the worst offender using the phrasing "Depending on X, depends on Y" for "X determines Y.")

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.
