            What about words/sayings that make absolutely no sense? Here's two that have always gotten me:

            Parkway/Driveway.....totally contradictive. You DRIVE on the Parkway, and PARK in the driveway! 

            Comeon folks...throw some more out there!

            No, they actually make complete sense.
            You drive along the parkway, because park in this case is the noun...a park, a scenic area, NOT the verb to park.
            You park in the driveway, because when the term came into being, driveways were quite long, perhaps a mile long and did require driving along them to arrive at the home, and only recently have they become short little things leading into a home, hence being able to park in them...you did once DRIVE in the driveway

            The one I don't like is Forgive and Forget! Uh no, I will always forgive, but I will never forget!

            We don't forget the good things that happen to us so why on earth would we forget the bad, what set my self up to have it happen again It sounds good, but it is not a good idea. Furthermore, I don't think we could forget something negative that affected us if we really wanted to!

            Forgive and Store Away, but never dwell!

            "knock on d" I use it many times but it makes no sense...surely, knocking your knuckles on a piece of d won't  avoid any bad luck...will it?

              ....well if the s**t did hit the fan it would go all over the place so I guess it means everyone's in the s**t.

              I have a couple of sayings my sweet little Nan (grandmother) used to say.

              If something shocked her she would say "I haven't seen such a thing since little Mary died" and if she was surprised about something she would say "Ooh mother look at Dick, he's sitting on the hearth rug playing with his pinafore".

              These I am certain were passed down from her mother.  She had loads of them and they were all strange but funny.  

              The other one that used to make me giggle was if her hand went weak or she had pins and needles in it she would say "My hand has gone all laughy".  Still makes me chuckle even though she is no longer around.

                  Actually, I was referring to the Garden State (NJ) Parkway. The Garden State Parkway (GSP) is a 172.4-mile (277-km) limited-access toll parkway that stretches the length of New Jersey from the New York state line at Montvale, New Jersey, to Cape May at the southern tip of the state. Its name refers to the state nickname, the "Garden State." Most New Jersey residents refer to it as simply the Parkway. The Parkway's official (unsigned) designation is Route 444. The highway connects to a short segment of the New York State Thruway known as the Parkway Extension, which is officially designated as New York State Route 982L, an unsigned reference route. That 2.4 mile segment connects to the Thruway mainline. The Parkway has been ranked as the busiest toll highway in the country based on number of toll transactions.
                  It's not actually a road alongside a park (noun). That's why it makes no sense to me, or anyone else from NJ. It should be called a 'tollway' since all along the Parkway, you have to pay tolls.

                      ok....here's one that is a constant disagreement between myself, and others I meet that live south.

                      Do you "Call into work" __or___ "Call out of work" ??

                      Where I grew up, it was always known to  "Call out of work". You are literally, calling OUT of work.
                      But when I moved to TX then VA, they say "Call in to work"

                      To me, that doesn't make sense.
