    Cannot stand spelling mistakes! At school I used to correct one of my friends on a daily basis. One word was 'either' she spelt 'eaither'. Seriously! Also can't stand the wrong spelling of 'there', 'their' and 'they're'. And 'congrads' instead of 'congrats'.
    Just to name a few!!

    I was about to write "got my hair did" in the reveal thread, but resisted for all your sakes.

    You're welcome

    To save our brains or because you're known for speaking correctly so everyone would think that getting your hair did is correct? D:

    Oh I just thought of another one that annoys the crap out of me. Dp, his sister and mum say it.
    'Done' instead of 'did'.
    I'm always correcting dp and he gets the sh!ts then sometimes (depending what it is) tries explaining that I'm wrong. (I can't think of an example right now lol).
    Grr! lol

    Maybe someone here can help me with this. I see signs that say "100s" or "1000s" or more frequently "100's" and "1000's". These annoy me because I read them as one hundreds and one thousands. Is the use of 1000s to mean thousands acceptable?
