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.

That's been going on for many many years. I remember hearing some kids say "on accident" when I was a kid.

But yea. It always bugged me too, even back then.
