To find “off of” so incredibly annoying

I keep hearing this all the time at the moment, “she got off of the bus” , “it’s off of the path”. I know in the scheme of things this is completely unimportant, but does anyone else find this as annoying and baffling as me?
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

If someone is using the word "telly" I wouldn't bother to consider their grammar.

That annoys me too, especially starting a paragraph with 'So'; I have even seen thread titles starting that way. 'OK so' is beyond the pale.

I can only assume lockdown is getting to people for them to be so 'infuriated', 'incredibly annoyed' and 'baffled' by how others choose to speak😂
You are absolutely right. I’m pretty sure none of the things that grate me now bothered me at all pre COVID!
