Grammar Stamp by Umeko-333 Grammar Stamp by Umeko-333
Who else gets annoyed by these simple grammar mistakes?
I don't know why.....
It just pisses me off.
Your: Indicates something belonging to the subject.
For example:
Your shoe is untied.
You're: Short for "you are" (and the appropriate word that should be used in the sentence "you're stupid."

BUT the mistakes that piss me off the most are when people use an apostrophe ( this thing ----> ' ) when there shouldn't be one.
GODDAMN IT PEOPLE. Apostrophes should only be used when using possessive nouns!
Ex:
This would be an appropriate use of an apostrophe:
I like the dog's collar.
the apostrophe indicates that the collar belongs to the dog.
This would be an inappropriate use of an apostrophe:
I like dog's.
It should be:
I like dogs.
An "s" without an apostrophe indicates the plural form of the word.

A friend of mine was dicussing with me about the plural of woman. She said the whole time: "It's womans! Not women, you idiot!" I really hate these kind of mistakes x_x

Well corrections doesn't matter . And I hate when someone's correcting me since I'm not perfect . But I agree though , we should still type or speak proper English than shortcuts . And also check our grammar owo . Still , I'm grammar NAZI and if you don't like it , then , don't deal with it.

I just hate the modern way of typing nowdays. "ur jus t jelly dat hes' hotur tehn yu ll evar bee!!1! LOL yo u fagg i h8t you snell ya l8tr11?" They use unnecessary
acronyms. In my opinion, an acronym should be used when a long phrase or name has already been stated, and is shortened for time purposes, or is official. Another acceptable way is when someone says an acronym and specifies what in means in a parenthesis. It also irks me when people say, "(ur a pedo)" I would see it in it's most proper form like this: " (You are a Pedophile.)" the meaning of the statement doesn't matter as long as you deliver the message in a way people can comprehend your statement. I also have noticed that mainly girls type with all these shortcuts and mistakes. I always go over whatever I type, its no race, nothing will hurt me if I don't get it in on time. As a girl, people think I'm a dude, especially when I type like this to people. Call me a Grammar Nazi if you'd think that it makes you a better person, I'm just glad that I'm not alone when it comes to using what we go to school for, and as a vague hint to someone who can't put two and two together, English.
