Don't you think it's funny when someone attempts to call you out for reading something wrong, but they can't spell?

I just find it humerous. I miss a simple word, no big deal, no harm done, wasn't passing judgement wasn't even important. Someone takes the effort to make an anonymous post to point it out,very rudley as well, but they can't spell? Really? LMAO

  • LOL that is so funny. It annoys the hell out of me that the grammar police needs to point out the smallest thing. If you know what the person is saying just shut up and ignore the mistake.

  • I think it's being mean spirited to call someone out about a post. If you are going to correct someone, have your own spelling together. You just have to ignore some people :)

  • Yea, until I turn around and do the same thing. Like forget to spell check or reread. Then I look like a complete idiot. Oh well doo doo occurs

  • Haha yeah! That is pretty funny! I make mistakes all the time with grammar and just typing...I'm not going to call anyone out when I do the same thing! I do think it is sad when people REALLY do not know how to spell or have basic grammar skills though.

  • I would just move on.

    Answer by sta517 at 12:56 PM on Feb. 2, 2011

  • ya, i'm sure people wonder sometimes when i type, but i can spell. I just think faster than i type, so sometime it comes out typed wrong. I don't bother to correct it, simply b/c if they can't figure it out, oh well, they should be able to read comprehensively. I do find it sad when i see a lot of (slang?) or misspellings that are obvious. But i still don't say anything, that's kinda class-less (did i spell that right? lol)
