Well, it stands for laugh out loud. I always just say "hahaha," but saying "lol" isn't something to compain about. They could be saying rotfl or something.

Because the intent is not to be believable, it's just to let them know that you think it is something funny. It's really not difficult.

Not something that really irritates me, but as a non-native speaker I'm always surprised to see how "couldn't care less" and "could care less" are both being used to indicate the same thing... that someone really doesn't care.

To me only the first one feels correct, while the second one would actually indicate that the person saying it at least somewhat cares... Because I've seen it used so often I'm not even sure if the second one is actually wrong, but it does feel wrong to me and would also be wrong in my native language.

Yeah, exactly.

Also, when people don't know the difference between "except" and "accept".

"Couldn't care less" is correct.
The other one is the retarded one.

alright... well in that case that one really irritates me... because it's even been confusing me about whether it's correct or not.

I'm not sure if this is wrong or right, but it is bothersome:

When asking someone if they know where something is, they respond with, "I'll see if I can't find it!". Wait. Aren't you supposed to be looking for it? It sounds as if they're trying to not find whatever it may be.

Oh, and for word misuse, mine is "anyways". Ever since I found out it's not a word, I've been really irritated by it.

It was created by gamers when typing quickly. They often ended up saying "pwned" when meaning to say "owned" after killing someone and the word stuck.

Another way of saying "owned", as in "Oooooooh, owned!"
