hypocritical prescriptivisms

So, a recent post to this comm made me curious:
To you descriptivists out there, what are your dirty little prescriptivisms.
Mine? I hate it will people say use "borrow" instead of "lend" ("He borrowed me the book."), and to a lesser extent, when people say "good" instead of "well" ("He cooks good.").
