    Link doesn't work but might just be because I'm on my phone. But it reminds me of an ad when I was looking at houses a few years ago that read 'escape the hussel and bussel of city life'. Seriously?! They're not even words! Don't they have spellcheck?!

    It's in a public FB album, hopefully it works from computers.

    It says: "Located in the prestige's suburb of Nicholls..."

    Heel- part of the foot. Not heal, which means to make well. Drives me nuts! On fb recently an acquaintance posting about the heal prick test! (I've seen it here too!)

    Just popping in to subscribe...I enjoy reading these for educational and humerous purposes (and to occasionally drive you all made by not using correct spelling, grammar and punctuation hehe).

    Saw this on FB just now and it made me think of this thread, though it's more a dig at "text speak"

    BEFORE b-e-f-o-r-e not "B4". We speaking ENGLISH not BINGO!

    It irritates me when people omit 'of' from a sentence like "I got it out [of] the fridge."

    Everyone does it though!

    My DH is English, and he does this all the time! He is from northern England and I swear they are the laziest speakers in the world.

    My personal favourite DH quote is, "Tin tin tin". Now you might think I just said the word 'tin' three times, but a rough translation into DH's language leaves us with a full sentence:

    "It isn't in the tin."

    Why use five different words when you can use three the same?

    Ohhh I hope I don't offend anyone but one thing that really gets to me is "feint". This is actually a French term used to describe a fencing maneuver. People aren't generally talking about "a distracting maneuver line".

    It takes all my strength not to correct feint to faint!

    If this is rude of me let me know & I will remove my post but I do feel better with that off my chest!

    Bahahaha! Nice, Shoopuf's DH!

    My maternal family hails from Essex so there's a lot of terrible grammar to be had at family gatherings.
