Bahaha awesome. 

I just can’t stand when people don’t use the correct their/there/they’re or two/to/too. It’s 3rd grade learning, people.

The one that makes me crazy is a part vs apart. I see so many people write things like “I’m happy to be apart of ____”. You mean you’re happy to be away from it? Tongue out

Hyperbole and a Half KILLS me! I don’t think anything cracks me up as much as that blog.

Ugh I could go on and on, but I don’t want to hurt feelings of the grammatically impaired.

Lol the “Alot” from hyperbole and a half is one of my favs!  I like the one that was done for the oatmeal in reference to her comic. “Alot of oatmeal”:

I really hate your/you’re.  This might be because I cannot cure my fiance of using your constantly.

I used to be an editor at the most godawful publishing company on the entire planet.  I quit after a month, if that tells you anything.  In the novel I edited while there (and really, I shouldn’t be calling it a novel…  Calling it “drivel” would be insulting to all the upstanding drivel in the world), I saw some awful stuff because the author had no grasp of the English language.  My favorite was when the protagonist was on the phone with her love interest and finally said, “I’m going to bed Ryan.” 

…Well, yes, but that didn’t happen for another hundred pages or so, and she shouldn’t have just told him over the phone!

Your/you’re and their/they’re/there mix-ups annoy me more than anything. It’s not rocket science, honestly. There are some pretty clear rules about when to use which word.

Pluralization issues: it’s passers-by, fathers-in-law and maids of honor, not passer-bys, father-in-laws or maid of honors.

A few others:

affect vs. effect

allowed vs. aloud

faze vs. phase

reins vs. reigns

waist vs. waste

aisle vs. isle

fiance vs. finance

There are so freaking many! But lately I seem to be noticing a trend in grammar fail happening when people on here have multiple people in their bridal party with the honor title. It is maids of honor, not maid of honors, and it is best men, not best mans.

And this is possibly less grammar and more accent/linguistics, but ya’ll and ain’t drive me insane!
