Most Americans READ and SPELL at an 8TH GRADE LEVEL

I didn't believe that statistic at first...

But the Internet has definitely confirmed this fact (FB and CM for me)

I was just on Facebook... A mother replying to a group post spelled SHOULD this way... SHOYLD.

No joke. And no I do not believe it was a typo. She also misspelt several other words.

What misspellings/grammar mistakes drive you nuts?

And is my phone the only one who underlines misspelt words?

Adding a few more of my favorites...

You know the "Y" is by the "U"... right?

 That could have been a innocent typo. Wow...

I hate when anyone over 25 uses "text speak". It irritates the shit out of when I have to try and translate what an adult is typing.

Ya because we're all soooo concerned about our grammar and spelling while we're on FB and CM. Also my phone is terrible to type on I make spelling mistakes all the time just because my fat fingers and the tiny little keys don't get along. Ugh.

I agree! I spell just about everything out. A lot of text talk I cannot decipher.

I have to text the sender back and ask them what a word meant...

Uh, the Y is next to the U. Your example shows nothing.

Y is right next to U. It was probably a mistype and not so much a misspelling imo.
