    In a coffee shop today they were selling all the usual suspects as well as mokas.

    WTF is a moka? I've heard of mocha....

    I have to say, I'm guilty of doing this. "Yeah, no..."

    I explained to DF, I think people do it because the "yeah" is to say "I am acknowledging that I have heard what you've said," and the "no" is to say "but I disagree..."

    I just came across one. The Alana Lee "song" (yes, in quotation marks on purpose, she's another Ark Music Factory "artist) called "Butterflies" is listed on iTunes as "Butterflys". I almost cried.

    My iPhone's autocorrect function changes all instances of "its" to "it's"! One day I won't notice one and people will think I put the apostrophe there... NOOOOOOOO!

    I know, Lambjam, drives me crazy too!
    I have been known to say yeah nah I have to admit. More in the case of 'yeah, [you'd think so but] no'.

    Lambjam- I can't wait for a store owner to ask why you're photographing their sign! Promise us you'll tell them!

    I couldn't read my Tupperware lady's latest update this month. It contained - Itallian, avocardo, your instead of you're, dont, familys and Buon Giorno (ok, that's an Italian error but it still annoyed me - 1. it's buongiorno and 2. she said it meant welcome!) Sadly, my Tupperware addiction remains strong despite this update.

    I recently liked a fb page that sells handmade soaps.
    One of her scents is 'manderine'.
    I'm usually ok with spelling but that looks wrong to me.
    Isn't is mandarine? Or even mandarin?
    I'm confusing myself now.

    Oh and I noticed the lack of punctuation around forums, fb etc. Kind of makes it hard to read when its one big long sentence. And also no spacing so it turns out to look like one big paragraph.

    I can handle bad spelling. People getting your, you're etc confused. But thats hard to read when its just a big jumble of words. My short attention span can't handle it.

    And now I'm wondering if I have made any grammatical errors within this post lol.

    Be kind to kittykawaii (There are quite a few errors in your post but we'll be polite )

    I thought it was mandarin too.

    Thats ok. I'm not pretending to be some big academic lol.
    So I am not one to point out others flaws usually. Just that whole sentence/paragraphing thing makes my brain shut down. I am open to improvement though with grammar.
    I like to learn how to do things the right way

    Of course you can blame your 'iphone'! Lol.

    I have a fb friend that does the same thing and it drives me nuts! It takes me two or three reads to figure out what she's trying to say. The funny thing is that it's usually not worth the two or three reads!
