I've been following Sue's Red Marker Blogathon with great interest, and especially enjoy reading the comments. A lot of the common errors one sees have been covered, so I have little to contribute.
Among the many 'englishes' we encounter, though, the errors made by working class people who have just a smattering of the language, are often rather endearing.
The SRE's caddy sends him an SMS one morning, saying ' Call me at this nambar.'
A long ago employee had to take her daughter for a Hex-ra ( an X-ray).
According to my driver, the substitute car has many 'poblem.'
And last, but most definitely not the least, I had the plumber in last week, and among other items on his bill, this one stood out: 'Shit cover.'
Could anything be possibly more appropriate for a toilet seat?

Shit cover? Fantastic. Even better than "Bill to the Chief Engineer's backside" (Gerald Durrrell).
Bwwahahaha! This is clearly my fave RMB post.
And my personal fave is Hex-ra. Just simply amazing.
The Gold Medal for Sue's RMB should definitely go to this post. Altogether brilliant!
ROTFL at shit cover.
ROFL :) I agree these errors are endearing and the last one is really, really apt :)

That was truly amusing.
Shit cover! :D I have also heard people saying - "it's a very riksy thing to do!" :D
Truly alarming - the SRE's caddy and Shit cover is wonderful ! My Ma had a general factotum who got a "Hema " mobike for his wedding from the in - laws ( Yamaha ,of course !
:) I like 'nambar' too.
Shit cover is just brilliant! And talking about numbars...someone I know used to say "gero".
my cook calls the oven a havan!
Shit cover? We should applaud him for coming up with such an apt term, shouldn't we?:D
LOL, shit cover is hilarious! Almost every single auto wala I've come across refers to signal as single :)
