Calling all grammar nazis!

What really irritates you that you just HAVE to say something?

Mine are when people use "woman" and "women" interchangeably...(we are all woman here, i knew this one women). I mean seriously they teach plurality when they teach you to spell!

Also, double negatives are like nails on a chalkboard for me.

And last, but not least, USE PUNCTUATION! I'm on mobile and i still use it!

I hate run-on sentences, so yes please use punctuation. My biggest problem is when people don't use there, their and they're correctly. It drives me crazy!!

But I will say that I hate it when a post is spelled all wrong, to the point where it's very hard to read and understand.

I honestly don't care unless it's obvious drunkenese (which makes me giggle) or it's completely unreadable like they were posting while bungy jumping (which would be a fabulous excuse), lol.

I hate it when people use shorthand for 90% of the post and you have to decipher the entire thing.

Lack of capitalization and punctuation. That, and using there, their and they're in the wrong context. Or abbreviating the shit out of everything when you aren't even on mobile. Or using seen in present tense i.e: "You seen that bear?"

Redundancy like at 3 a.m. In the morning.

Using thier, there, and they're interchangably and same with your and you're.

I really hate this when I saw one of these used on a billboard, though, that's worse than on here.
