Why do people say they have an Ideal instead of an Idea, which is correct?

People say ideal instead of idea in bristol, I've heard up to 5 people say it now, glad someone else brought it up because I though I was losing my marbles!lol
I believe it is easier to say ideal vs. idea, it rolls off the tongue better! In addition, the meanings seem to be like splitting hairs. I have a great idea or I have a great ideal, what's the big difference? There is none.
I think that using ideal when idea should be the correct word is a silly way to speak. I hear ideal used incorrectly all the time, it really gets on my nerves. Oh well...
"I have an idea.""This is an ideal situation."
It drives me crazy when people use "ideal" in place of "idea". I want to shake them and say No! It's idea! But I'm kind of a grammar police anyway. My pet peeve is when people do not use the proper They're, their and there in sentences, it is very prevalent in social media. I just want to give grammar lessons but know I'll come off sounding like a snob.
