does this bother you at all?

I know that some people just have a problem with spelling and grammar, but how can a pregnant woman not know how to spell the word "pregnant"? Especially when you post your question, it's under the "PREGNANCY Section"?

  • Yeah, you'd think as many times as we moms have had to see the word 'pregnant', we'd all know how to spell it by now :P

  • I have to be careful here because I speed type and usually have to respond quickly.....but, understand why and how consistent spelling errors could cause readers frustration.

  • I think some people just don't put any effort into spelling things right. Sometimes they're in a hurry and sometimes they just don't give a crap. I know sometimes I try and double check my responses, but other times I'm in a bit of a hurry. It is sad that when I come back to what I wrote and will realize the mistake I made, that I have to worry if some uptight women is going to criticize me for it.  To answer your question. No it does not bother me at all.

  • Depends on my mood...but most of the time I can't stand it! I always double check what I type to make sure I spelled everything correctly. Why get an education if you aren't going to use it?!

  • LOL! Most of the time I can't stand it either. I ALWAYS reread my response before I post it. I hate it when I see that I've misstyped a word. I understand typing mistakes and I know what that person meant to type. But when people just outright misspell the simplist words or use the wrong spelling of the word like there, their and threw, through like the first poster said. It drives me nuts! But hey, that's just me.
