Mine is people who constantly refer to Switzerland as "Swiss" ..

Ie, "I have just moved to Swiss"

.argggh it drive me crazy!!
Swiss doesn't bother me so much as it's most likely not a native English speaker and it's sometimes a direct translation from another language. I assume they don't know any better, yet.

Switz on the other hand bugs the bejeezus out of me because it's almost always an English native speaker being lazy.
