Does it drive you crazy when people misspell over and over? It drives me crazy. Of course, we all make occasional errors out of being in a hurry, child at your side, etc. I am referring to the posts that remind me of some of my students "inventive" spelling. I know I may be seen as putting people down by some, but, seriously, use spell check!

  • if I am on something like cafe mom I don't feel that things have to be perfect. When I am doing something that matters I will make sure it is perfect!! Better things to worry about!

  • I know what you mean. I know spellcheck isnt always available but ppl should know how to spell most words. A friend of mine spells daughter...dawter. I know it sounds that way but...really??? didnt you learn to spell in grade school?? My sis was telling me of a friend that spells beach...beech...?? Thats a frigin tree! LOL Its one thing if its a large word and is not used in everyday vocab but it def does drive me nuts when ppl cant spell........especially BASIC words!

    I also get that ppl type to fast and mispell...thats understandable...but when its their common use I get turned off lol
