I hate the 'of' thing so damn much. It literally doesn't make any sense.

Another thing that bugs the hell out of me is when people say they 'could care less'. THAT'S (probably) NOT WHAT YOU MEAN.

I'm adding people who say "draw" instead of drawer, too. Bitch, you don't have anything in yours draws, because that isn't a damn noun!

My friend always says 'could care less' and it bugs me so much that I always end up being the prick that corrects her. :x

Also, "defiantly" :roll: "I think that's defiantly incorrect".... Do these dickheads realise that defiantly is not interchangeable with definitely? Or do they not know how to spell definitely so they write defiantly instead and if someone corrects them, they can say "typo!" I don't get it, i do a damn happy dance whenever anyone actually writes "definitely". They don't mean the same frigging thing! Pisses me off.

And when people use "actually" too much. "I am actually shocked". That's just unnecessary. And it's enunciated so harshly. It's not necessary, you're using it wrong and you sound like a fucking moron. I swear, it's trending.

Oh god, i have a feeling i'm going to spend a lot of time ranting on this thread... :)

I DEFIANTLY agree!!! Oh so rebellious. LOL
The should of, could of, would of bugs the crap out of me too. You cannot OF something.

Oh, and what about "I seen." Now you didn't. You didn't seen it. You saw it.

And then there's the wrong usage of your/you're and there/their/they're.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :x :x :x :x :x :x :x

"All be it" :roll: You mean "albeit". It's one word. If you're going to use it in every sentence, at least get it right :lol:

OK, I get it OP. I also get annoyed at poor grammar (you're vs. your for example), but we should bare in mind that not everyone on this forum has English as their first/mother language. We all start somewhere.

In that case, it's not just the OP, it's everyone that has commented on this thread. Not being native English is fine and understandable. This thread was made to vent about it without having to leave someone a message (or confront them face to face) that would be embarassing for them, saying something like "Dumbass, it's there, not they're", for example. Isn't that the whole point of GG in the first place?

It's when people are native English speakers that it's annoying. I left school at 11 cos of stuff at home and i still know the difference between your and you're, for example. That's what makes it so annoying to me personally, i just don't understand what's so difficult to understand about it. But i am sorry if you're offended, i don't think anyone here was trying to be a dick.

What I find most annoying is when you correct people and they act like you killed their dog. Like, I'm sorry that I tried to help you improve with your English. It's not like I screenshot what you wrote and posted it on a grammar shaming blog.

I have a friend who will routinely spell words wrong and then add "(how do you spell that?)". And then she gets offended when I correct her :roll:

English isn't my first language, but... Writing whit instead of with, witch instead of which :( I just don't get why it is so hard to tell when you have to use your and you're, if you mix those up, it instantly makes you look like a dumbass.

Also, in general, writing like this: "wat r u tryna say btch wat u gonna do abt it" What's the point? No one understands you.
