manta: People who put appostrophes in when pluralising


Better still, I found someone who uses apostrophes on verbs! He wrote "She love's..."

Annoying? People using "of" instead of "have" as in "should of" instead of "should have".

People using "their" instead of "there", "you're" instead of "your" and so on...

SCM: people that dont realise some people simply cant spell


It is a skill that can be learnt if you care enough about it.  I like to think that if enough people disapprove of bad spelling and grammar that it will be an incentive to want to learn.

Sadly all it seems to do these days is make people indignant and self-righteous about it being some form of self expression to write poorly.

Yes I have to agree with you. These days the txt lingo has killed the want to learn correct spelling and grammer. For many years my spelling was very bad, its been in the many years since leaving school that my spelling has improved. Its the constant flack I receved at school relating to my poor spelling skills that caused my annoyance of people nitpicking at spelling.

Back to topic.
The pricks that continue to speed down my street, I live on a very narrow street that has many children and old folks living on it. These eggs seem not to care about the lives they are putting at risk including their own.

When I stood in a line and want to buy a concert ticket, the one before me just got the last one.
