anyone else?

I don't correct anyone and I am not the worlds best at grammer but the mis use of "their" and "there" is so common on this site and it is one error that always jumps out at me. Is this just me or do you have a grammer or spelling error that bothers you? Yes, I am a little bored and being a little petty. By the way I looked up petty to make sure I was spelling it correctly.

  • I dislike when others use the word "grammer" instead of "grammar". That gets me everytime. I also dislike the misuse of their and theyre, but I know I do it sometimes. Its not because I dont know how, its just because Im not thinking.

  • I'm a writer, so I worry about those things a lot. I'm not really editing myself carefully when I'm sending a quick message, or responding to a post, so I've made many of these mistakes myself. You can usually tell by reading the message whether the person really just can't spell and has poor grammar, or just made a mistake.
