The one that drives me crazy is the way people from other regions pronounce "the" as "thuh" in all circumstances. We were taught (by the good nuns) that when the word following "the" starts with a vowel, you should pronounce "the" as "thee". It sounds like you're stuttering to say things like "thuh internet" instead of "thee internet". It’s the same sort of thing with the "a" and "an": you say "an apple" not "a apple".
