    I don't mean little tiny mistakes that people often make that you see all the time, unless you have a really really bad reaction to them - like misplaced apostrophe's, fuck I hate those.

    For me, it's shit like:

    "HEY GUYS, I'M GOING TO GO MAKE A SANDWHICH BUT WHILE I DO THAT CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT TUNNING THIS TRASH METAL IS IN?"

    "Sandwhich," "tunning," and "trash" instead of "thrash" drive me insane. Honorable mention goes to "masterbation."

    It only bothers me if someone blatantly misspells stuff. Like some misspellings I think, "I could see how you might think it was spelled that way... You get a pass." But other times people will write things like...

    "Where are you goen?"

    Come on now... You didn't even try... :lol:

    And yes... I know a girl who spells like that. I hate talking to her in writing.

    People need to learn how to spell "Definitely".

    No, it is not "Definately", and it most certainly is not "Defiantly". That's another word all together.

    Fuck.

    I can deal with transposed letters far more easily than someone just not trying at all, Ralphy. :lol:

    The sad thing is I thought EVERYTHING had spell check these days. That just goes to show how much people AREN'T trying. You have a machine telling you you're wrong and willing to fix it for you and you just can't be assed to make the effort to be understood. :rofl:

    Every fucking time, I want to write "definitely" I have to google it, English is not my mother tongue. I'm not bad in English or writing in general, but the word "definitely" is a BITCH!

    I also hate it when people say "So-n-so and I" when it should be "So-n-so and me."

    Some people just use "and I" for everything because they pound into your head so much in school that "and me" can SOMETIMES be wrong.

    Is it okay to say "y'all" or "you's" guys yet?

    Proper as they ain't, they's still fun to say. :lol:

    It's funny when they call you out on your grammar but spell it that way, especially when they're not even right ignoring the misspelling. :lol:

    I generally don't mind American spellings but my pet hate has to be Aluminum, both the way it's spelt and especially the way it's pronounced. I have no idea why I dislike it so strongly, but give me Aluminium any day of the week :)

    ... Wait... :scratch:

    You're not supposed to say it like that? I've totally heard a lot of Europeans say it with the extra "i" in there. I was always confused about that word...
