One that really annoys me...would of instead of would have. I can't imagine how after 20+ years, you haven't learned the difference.

EIGHTH??? You give them more credit than I have. LOL. 

And no, my grammar is not perfect. I still forget where commas go.

Not to mention the use of too and to.

Their, there, and they're also seem to throw them for a loop.

I hope that most of them don't home school, but more than half of then seem to.

that's a lot different than making a post with obvious mistakes all the way through it starting with the title.

No kidding. But I might put a your instead of you're and I am well aware if the difference.

Lmao I had a friend on here Kim. Who used to spell like that all the time, she thought everything was spelled the way it sounded. Yes she quit school in the 8th grade. Sad part was when someone would correct her, she got all huffy, said this wasn't school ,so nobody should correct her.. I tried explaining she should pay attention and learn, it will help her to not look like a fool when filling out important paperwork in her life.. She got mad , so I just started keeping a list of the words, instead of correcting her... Here's her list..lol

1) meanajer------- manager

2) bord----- bored

3) brake yes this is a real word spelled right but some need to understand that it means the brake on your car... --------Break means something cracked or taking a time out....

4) barried---- buried

5) icnore-----ignore

6) lab top-------- lap top

7) yesturday---- yesterday

8) afend-----offend

9) sware----- swear

10) sort of speak----- so to speak....
