Sorry, this drives me bonkers because I see the wrong spelling more often than not on the Bee.
I would like your advice. (noun)
Please advise me on the best dress to wear. (verb)
Also, “ironically” doesn’t apply to all coincidences.
I know, I know…grammar police are annoying, but I never want to chime in on someone’s thread and I feel better having vented. 🙂

Omg now I have to share that my pet peeve is:
fiancé -> male
fiancée -> female.
Sometimes I’m reading the thread and I go ok this is a lesbian couple and at the end BAM they were talking about their fiancée Tom. 😉
The advice (noun) vs advise (verb) thing? Preaching to the choir ma’am.

Some of the language I see on the internet leads me to believe that grammar is no longer being taught in schools today.
Some people have no idea about correct pronoun use. Him an I’s is a classic example.

One of the guys I went to high school with posted on Facebook that he was excited to meet his “student’s.”
I know for a fact he was taught better than that. Come on, man, you’re a teacher! I couldn’t help but correct him.
