1. Then and than are not the same words. They cannot be used interchangeably.

2. When writing/typing a money amount, the dollar sign goes first....like this: $5.

3. Apostrophes, people! Please learn to use them correctly!

 Hmmm most of my pet peeves revolve around running outdoors....inconsiderate drivers, people who park on side walks, people that have their sprinkler systems aimed at the sidewalks, drivers that wait at a stop light in the cross walk

OMG!!

1) when women/girls call their BF their "hubby".. ah rip my hair out annoying, you are not married, you make out in public no one believes your married, just cause you have a baby together does not make you commited for life.

2) ^ on that note, your "anniversery" does not describe your first date.. i have only had one anniversery but i have been with DH for nearly 8 years.

As far as spelling/grammar pet peeves go...I hate it when people spell/say udderly as utterly and say caddy rather than catty.  Also drives me a little nuts when I see ridiculous spelled rediculous.

Using loose like I need to loose weight, drives me crazy. I also hate the word preggers, baby daddy and cooter. Yick
