Women can be???

I was on my mobile and it does TWord where it picks a word as you spell it. I did a post and one word was wrong. I was bashed so hard about how stupid I was and I need to go back to school.

I didn't realize so many people were "perfect".

Sorry I made a mistake.

Women can be really cruel.

  • Happens to me all the time. Its called AUTO CORRECT on your phone! People need to get a life and quit picking on stupid shit like a misspelled word. Maybed if we all did that, the world would be a little bit of a nicer place.

  • Dont be sorry. ONE misspelled word IS NOT a reason to bash!! Typing in ghetto speak and abbreviations however might be a good reason.

  • Yes women can be cruel, just like children can, ignore them they are not worth your time.

  • One lady was even brave enough to say that she felt bad for my daughter, that she was born with the stupid gene.

  • That is one of my biggest pet peaves here on CM. if i see someone commenting ont he OP's grammar, i get pissed & let them know it's not OK, that we are not here to be English teachers, but to give help & recieve help.

    I slammed a lady on here yesterday & always will if i see some bitch being anal about someone's grammar.

    if i have a hard time underatanding, then i may say something like "I'm not quite understanding what you wrote". I never critisize though, i am here to help...not play English Teacher...

  • If I cannot read what you've written, I might make a comment about writing it with better grammar/sentence structure, etc, if I even bother at all to try to read/respond. I know I'm not perfect, so one mistake I won't bash. That's pretty piss poor of those ladies to bash over one little mistake, when it really wasn't even your fault. But that's also why I cannot stand T9...I'd rather take more time and spell everything properly when sending a text vs having a completely unreadable text that makes you go "huh?" (And yeah, I had a friend who would text me using T9, and I could barely understand anything she ever sent, mostly because she did it while DRIVING. Dumbass.)

  • There's a big difference between typos and misspellings and just not knowing how to communicate through English. Bad grammar does make people sound ignorant and uneducated. Sorry you got bashed for a typo, becaue obviously you know how to speak. Some people are nit oicky. I only complain about the completely unintelligible ones lol

  • Shoot, girlglow, I've seen them where the letters were completely misconstrued...even first and last, and I could STILL read it! As long as all the letters to the words were in there...
