The one I hate is "a part" and "apart".

a part = to be part of something
apart = to not be part of something

They have the complete opposite meaning, but people repeatably use apart when they mean a part.

No, he wasn't using it out of context...when I laughed and explain, he gave a silly grin and said, "Oh".
