That's been going on for many many years. I remember hearing some kids say "on accident" when I was a kid.surprise_i'm_armed wrote:One thing that is absolutely "fingernails on the chalkboard" to me is when the
younger generation states that something happened "ON ACCIDENT."
Proper usage is this : things either happen "BY ACCIDENT" or "ON PURPOSE".
Some new words/usage make perfect sense such as "websurfing" or "couchsurfing",
but this "On accident" use seems clunky, awkward, and just plain wrong.
But yea. It always bugged me too, even back then.
