"Is is," I says!

Know what really annoys me?

when people say "The fact is is (blah blah blah)..."

What's with that? Why do they repeat the "is"? The second "is" should be a "that"!

Another one that annoys me is when someone is telling a story of a past dialog and they say something like, "So he says you wanna do something, then I says sure, then he says like what, and I says I dunno..."

Do I pay too much attention to detail or something?
