I am not really a grammar or spelling nazi and don't like to correct people as a rule. But there's one word that seems to be everywhere I go lately and drives me utterly batshit. That would be the latest cool buzz word, 'Anyways'. Every time I see that word spoken or written I have to quell a near irresistible urge to put my hands around their neck. It's not cute or warmly folksy to me, it's just stupid.

It's ANYWAY. Adverbs cannot be plural. No Anyways about it.

In any way or manner whatever: Get the job done anyway you can.
In any case; at least: I don't know if it was lost or stolen; anyway, it's gone.
Nevertheless; regardless: It was raining but they played the game anyway. "
