@Snowy414: How do you know they aren’t having the ceremony on their own private isle? 😉

haha, I’m glad I’m not the only one annoyed by small things like that! I’m a bit of a grammar and spelling freak though. Innocent

Ha! Good one! I know that I post and my brain can’t keep up with my fingers as I type, but they are clear case of tying too quickly, not incorrect words! LOL! Hopefully they won’t get offended, just a little embarassed and learn a lesson for the day.

Advise vs advice makes me nuts. I’ll totally admit it. I know I make mistakes a lot too though, so I try to keep myself in check 😉

I’m totally guilty of this when my fingers type faster than my brain works…

I’m an annoyed there, their, they’re person. As well as your and you’re.

Also when people are talking I have a hard time not correcting someone when they say li-BARE-ee. Ugghhhh… there’s another R in there!

@Snowy414: Thank you!!! This one makes me cringe too, but I didn’t want to say anything since I’m not one to preach being an ESL speaker and saying stupid stuff all the time myself.

Once I was trying to prove to my husband I do not find James McAvoy all that attractive and there’s no reason to be jealous. I wanted to point out something imperfect like his nose. Except instead of “well, he does have a huge schnoz”, what I said was “well he does have a huge schlong!”. You can imagine that one didn’t go over very well, LOL.
