    Yes I'm too scared to type in this thread in case I make a mistake. I make a lot of typos!!! Most of the time I know better, just not thinking straight.

    And it's 'a lot' not alot or allot

    the use of your when it should be you're.....drives me insane. And I don't see why it is so hard. You are = you're.

    I like the little cartoon that says something like:

    "Your stupid" and the other stick figure says "My stupid what?"

    This may be a little off-track (and a little obscure for some, I'll admit I'm a pedant) but one of my biggest pet hates is people misusing the phrase "beg the question".

    I vividly remember a moment during my first philosophy lecture when the lecturer said, "Oh, and it's most likely that you'll never properly understand what it is to "beg the question", let alone be able to use it in a sentence. That's fine; just don't use it at all."

    I just wish he could spread his message a little further. Let's call this my attempt .

    I see the incorrect usage of stationary/stationery on a daily basis. This is really the only thing that drives me insane.
