I sent an email to my son's school once complaining that on the school's website it said "currant events". I couldn't believe an educational institution would let that one through.

I am Riff's!
This is definitely the thread for me!
My pet peeves: there/their/they're, his/he's, few/less (this one makes me giggle eg less people - which bits? Arms, legs missing?!
I have many, many more but will read back now to agree with others

Oh, and saying "bored of" instead of "bored with" or "bored by".
And "a whole nother".
And "from whence".
And mixing up "discrete" and "discreet".
I'll stop now (before someone points out their hatred of "and" being used at the beginning of a sentence ).

I'm shocking for not reading all posts first.
Msmummy, did anyone explain the split infinitive to you? The infinitive verb is the verb in it's unchanged form. To be, to run, to question - always with 'to' if you separate the to from the verb it's 'split'. Eg to not be wanting advice - should be - to be not wanting advice.
Hope that helps

Maybe we could use this thread as a way to explain grammar and also ask questions about it?
My grammar is okay but i don't know everything and i would appreciate learning so perhaps people could explain the correct way to use words rather than just saying it is annoying.
ie instead of just saying 'I hate it when people mix up brought and bought' you could explain the difference. Hopefully it might help someone reading from making the mistake.
I get brought/bought confused but i believe brought means to bring and bought means you have purchased something ie 'I bought a new car' and 'I brought my drunk friend home'
Is that right?
Please excuse any grammatical errors in my post :P
