Comp. class has turned me into a grammar freak. I mentally correct grammar online and in real life. I do not actually correct it out loud. I am still a horrible speller though. I thank God for spellcheck.

I don't correct either. I do correct spelling sometimes. It's not meant to be mean, though. Sometimes I spell things wrong and use incorrect words, so I can't very well be mean to others for doing it. 

One thing I do dislike is when people misspell a lot or use a ton of abbreviations, and then when someone says "I can't understand what you wrote" they get all pissy about it.

 Not at all. Not my place, I am not the grammar or spelling police. As long as I can figure out what someone is saying, it doesn't really bother me. NO ONE is perfect and EVERYONE makes mistakes.

 lol. My SO calls me the "english teacher" because i correct him quite a bit. Spanish was his first language though so some stuff he really doesn't know and some he does just to get on my nerves! lol :)

 I correct people online and IRL. Not all the time.. but I am definitely guilty of it sometimes. LOL

 I don't do it to strangers.. but I would hate for someone I care about to continue to look stupid when they can be corrected a few times and learn ;)

 I've been known to correct people's choice of words in real life...
