Misspelling Pet Peeves...

Ok, so everyone here probably has a word or two that really pisses you off when you see it misspelled. I'm not talking punctuation errors that result in misspellings like "Your being such an asshole.", but rather like these:


1. My computer is running slow, I'm going to pick up a new Labtop.

2. Someone backed into my car today, I have a nasty scratch on my Bumber.

3. I'm worried about my tires in the winter, the Thread is looking a little low.

Those are my top 3, post up which ones piss you off the most.

Tomorrow.

It bothers me a lot when people misspell tomorrow.

It's not tomarrow or tommorrow or tamorrow or any other combination.

It's tomorrow.

Nice contribution.



I'm talking about at work or dealing with people on a day to day basis. Some people do need to read things that other people have written at their jobs, believe it or not.

Actually...a lot of the ones mentioned are common typos (not necesarily mispellings because someone doesn't know better). Typos don't bother me too much.

My college bf and I used to always say "tlak go yo layer, baby" because I always used to mess up typing "talk to you later." It was stupid couple-speak, but I remember it.

You know what I did? I went back and took one "s" out because I was like "is it one "s" or two?" and then I forgot to put it back in.

See? It happens to everyone.

Well I axed my friend what mispelled words piss her off the most, and then she axed me why I axed.

I hate when people type "kewl.". That doesn't save any letters over "cool," and it just looks stoopid. Oh, and "stoopid," too.
