When people are reciting a URL and say "back slash" when they mean "forward slash."

Back slash is for file paths, you nimrods.

Some places where you put in your debit/credit card require you to leave it in. Some make you "remove card quickly". I wish there were an indicator beforehand, so I can be prepared.

I've heard it at least a half dozen times, as a lame joke, usually in context of diet/eating restrictions.

Something like "Can't believe [X] is vegetarian... I'm a carnivore."

Pretty much this except I've heard it way more than a half dozen times. My wife is vegetarian and my sister + twin brother were vegetarians for a long time too. So basically every opportunity my dad gets.

Yah, I would say people now just state "I don't prefer that or I don't consume this or I only eat this" rather than use the dictionary lingo.

Another one my dad (classic baby boomer dad joke) always refers to himself as is "meatitarian" followed by genuinely laughing at his own joke.

Daylight Savings Time, which everyone already hates, but is extra garbage when you have a 12 week old who has just started settling into a sleep routine.

Emotional support dogs. Seriously. No training required. I especially enjoy when they cause a plane to turn around because they bite a kid or have poisonous diarrhea that compromises the other passengers
