Your Grammar is annoying.....

Ok I'm just going to come right out and say it.

I get so irritated with people and their grammar today. Even on sites like this one. I understand that in this day and age most of us are texting and trying to shorten everything up but when you are typing something to Me, I expect you to actually say "with" not "wit" or "cuz" instead of "because" ....I'm not saying that the LOL's and LMAO'S are annoying but come on people, why not just add the "h" at the end???? Not only does it make you look lazy(and kind of dumb) but when I read your comments, questions or replies I often stop and run the other direction because to me it's a big jumbled up mess!!!
Am I the only one who is bothered by the use of English these days? Or should I say lack there of?

  • I hate when people abbreviate "come" with "cum". There is no beauty in the written word any more.

  • I agree with you. My son and I and all of our friends not only type it all out, we text it all out too. LOL

  • Shanna.......EXACTLY! That is what I'm talking about. Why on earth do Adults want to talk/type in a way that makes them look and sound like some back alley thug?

  • It drives me crazy when people are typing on the computer and they write shorthand or whatever you call it. It is lazy, and there's no excuse. Everyone who finishes high school these days takes keyboarding classes and learns how to properly type. I see no reason for the lack of proper grammer online besides laziness and stupidity.

  • I'm guilty of using "cuz" instead of because a lot, but what drives me crazy are the misuses of words like there, they're and their.

  • Oh, you're not the only one! It is silly. It seems like some people go out of their way to write weird. Like yesterday- I saw a gal was substituting all her e's with "3" and (I can't remember which) another letter with another number. What is the point of that?
