    If bad grammar/spelling doesn't bother you, then why come into the thread? It's pretty clear from the title what is contained within...

    My pet hate at the moment is should of/would of/could of... No, people. It is should HAVE, would HAVE, could HAVE.

    Poor manners don't kill people either, but it can still be annoying. Everyone has things that annoy them. Poor spelling and grammar just happens to be that thing for me.

    Back on topic ...

    I have noticed a lot of 'board' people lately. Must be tough being a board.

    Somebody may wish to provide the definition of the word 'vent' for the benefit of a PP.

    ^ my pet hate!


    I hate the fact that poor grammar annoys me, but it just does. I have not read though this entire thread so may be repeating, but another gripe of mine: people who say "everythinK" instead of everything!

    My blood pressure rises slightly each time I see people forget to put the *n't* on words like couldn't, shouldn't, wouldn't etc.

    Not exactly a written error, but my husband says 'usedtavit' all rolled into one, instead of 'used to it'..........


    Drives me bonkers!

    Most things that annoy me are the mixing up of the common basic words. My typing is lazy and so often technically are wrong. eg hte instead of the.. but that's my own laziness.

    The basic things, your/you're, they're/there/their, to/too.

    And definitely! Another one here who gets so frustrated, and it's often done by people who consider themself pretty good in terms of spelling etc.
