Are there any grammatical errors that just drive you nuts?

 I am well aware of grammar and all of that but it doesn't bother me at all when people make grammatical errors or spelling errors or use slang or short cut typing.  I don't sweat the small stuff, it's not that important in the scheme of things.

This drives me insane too. It really doesnt take that much longer to write it correctly. My mil is famous for this. It's like really? Your 40 some years old.. it's not cool. Lol.

 same. it looks dumb

i dont mind minor errors on here or on FB--people are probably typing fast or not taking the time to proofread. I know i have a lot of errors on here from trying to type while nursing.

errors on professional things, like commercials, signs, billboards etc... bother me a lot.

I can be hard on myself for spelling or grammar errors but I don't put that expectation on others. What bothers me is when it's done on a professional paper, commercials, or signs.
