they’re/their/there

to/two/too

your/you’re

it’s/its

people who don’t know how to use punctuation or capitalization and write in long run-on sentances that go on forever and randomly transition from one thought to the next without any warning. 

Apo’strophe Abu’se (enough said)

Also, I have a coworker who consistently uses the “words” irregardless and supposably. *Facepalm*

Pretty much all of them haha, but I’m an English teacher. English is my second language and I teach English in an English-speaking country, and yet I speak the language better than half the adults I meet who are native to the country. It’s pretty sad.

I probably annoy everyone with my typos and lack of grammar. In my defense I only have internet access on my android phone and some posts take a long time! If I add photos a post can take twice as long and my thumb gets tired lol, I don’t have a keyboard its a touch screen nightmare.

I can’t stand “could of” and “should of”. And “they’re/their” etc.

I’ve learnt English at school (junior high) and I moved to the US only a few years ago, so my English is not great. I am sure I make a lot of mistakes, but when I kept reading “should/could of” everywhere (facebook, forums..) I had to check it on the dictionary! 🙂

I guess I can ask you: a lot of girls write, say, “Thank you all, bee’s”.. why the apostrophe? Is that correct or not?
