I hear you!  I’m constantly hitting edit… but I’m sure there’s things I miss.

Pure bread dogs would have me worried, though.  Wowsa.

Perhaps you should realize that some people just type and don’t re-read. It’s not that serious. Obviously you do it too πŸ™‚

But I’m so delicious!

 

I admit that my eye may twitch when I see someone spell something wrong or use the wrong tense, but I would never actually say anything to correct them.  I find it immensely rude.  My brother used to do that to my SIL on FB all the time and I hammered him for it.

@mwitter80: Lol!  I’m guilty of speed typing and spelling mistakes too, mostly because I want to post my response right away.

@MightySapphire: LMAO, that is great!!

I was actually trying to find one of the grammar threads I was in a few weeks ago, but couldn’t. Suffice it to say, a lot of us have problems with this πŸ™‚

It annoys me too. Sometimes it takes me 15 minutes to post while I reread everything to make sure that it makes sense and that everything is spelled correctly. I had a teacher that would make us write “to, too, and two” 100 times if we mixed them up.

@MightySapphire: I love pure bread pups! I could slice it up all day!

 

Grammar is like any other thing in life- some people care and other people could care less. Personally I care more about what a person is saying or trying to say, not how they say.

I’m sure todays type heavy communication ( texting, e-mailing, tweeting, forums etc) makes people type faster than they think and also its acceptable to mess up or shorten words to make it more text/web lingo friendly.

I live with a house full of foreigners, English FAILS are a daily occurrence both written and especially verbal πŸ™‚ I love it, it makes life interesting.

@Eva Peron: I agree, i type way faster than I need to sometimes, and also have a problem with rereading before posting, which is why I like the edit feature. πŸ™‚

@krystilainne: I just found it hilarious that in a vent about spelling and grammar you didn’t use spell check as you suggested, because it’s not that big of deal. I’m glad to see you edited though πŸ™‚

@krystilainne: I think maybe her point was to give people the benefit of the doubt and not let it get to you.  πŸ™‚

Technically, what bothers you is spelling, not grammar.  Bad grammar is when people don’t speak well English. πŸ˜‰
