I feel even the word "annoyed" is too strong, but I generally feel confused(I guess?) when really simple words are just spelled incorrectly, like "feel". But for all I know the person simply made a typo or, like I sometimes do, I put together letters & words incorrectly and then not seeing it later. So I try not to care too much, but I guess that would be my word-usage pet peeve.

Oh and, using words like "tard" and "retard/ed" is a really big pet-peeve. I generally just hate the word and I find it to be rather unimpressive that a person couldn't find a better word to use to describe something. I just think it makes them look uneducated and frankly, not very caring of other peoples feelings. There are tons and tons of other words that can easily be used instead.

I'm not from the south but I have a lot of family and friends in the south AND I listen to quite a bit of Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, etc. So as far as I'm concerned...All ya'll don't know diddly squat. Anyhow on to the subject of the spelling an grammar Nazi's, the only way I could make this post look good is to put it in word and correct everything. I used to be much worse though. Before I started doing RPG's online my grammar and spelling sucked however a lot of people couldn't understand what I was saying so I had to fix that and I worked hard to be more...uh...literate?

I still don't do everything 100% though and I don't think it should really matter as long as you understand what I am saying. I went from:

Quote:
he walked over to the bar. can I have a drink please he asked?
To

Quote:
He walked over to the bar. "Can I have a drink please?" He said to the bar tender.
If you ask me, it's much better.

You also have to take into consideration that it may not always be that someone intentionally does things to irk you. There are people like me who had hell in school and other things because of learning disabilities and still, like me, have issues.

That said, I use preggo and Preggers all the time, it's fun, it's unique and different. I am myself, therefore I speak the way I do to be unique. If someone doesn't like it, oh well. That's there problem and if they correct me? I'd probably give them a nice little knuckle sandwich. By the way? Have you ever took a close look at the English language? It in itself is not grammatically correct.

I don't like how over-used the word "nazi" is nowadays. Kinda strong for someone who appreciates correct grammar, don'cha think?

Ah but you knew what I meant, I don't plan on changing it either. There was a point to my post. And I can't give you a knuckle sandwich...unless the computer has become a teleporter recently?

I agree with that. Grammar has always come easy to me, so I don't understand why I have to dumb myself down to not be a "nazi."

I do have more tolerance for incorrect grammer on the internet though. I can lolspeak with the best of them

The incorrect use of the word.. "Totally" really annoys me, it's not a sign of agreement!!

For example: Do you want to go out?.. "Totally" is NOT an answer! "Yes that would be spiffing old chap" is the correct response!

And another thing that really winds me up, and my sister in law is the biggest offender of this one is.. "Innit", not isn't it.. Just.. Innit.. And she tacks it on to the end of the most inapropriate phrases.. "Are you alright?.. Innit" It's enough to make me scream!!

I HATE when people don't pronunciate their words. It's usually those who use slang as a language. Yes, to me slang is a completely different language. It usually involves me screaming "WHAT?!" about 5 times before I just say screw this and walk away.

One phrase that p!sses me off is "I ain't got none". , makes me want to choke the crap out of them.

Text speak! I hate it, it is not spelling, it is not conversing. It is showing the word that your brain just threw up and it is running out of your nose.

He walked over to the bar. "May I have a drink please," he said to the bar tender.

(He could have said, "can," since it's in quotes, but he too, needs a grammar nazi.)

He said to the bar tender does not stand alone as one sentence. It needs to part of the first part of the sentence. It's all one sentence. "He said to the bar tender" by itself is an incomplete sentence. He said to the bar tender what? What did he say to the bar tender?

Or you could write, "He said to the bar tender, "May I have a drink please?" The M is capitalized, even though it's not the first word of the sentence. It is the first word in a quote, so you capitalize it.

I agree. Although I am not perfect in my grammar and positively the worst speller, I don't see anything wrong with trying to preserve the English language. To call someone a grammar nazi for this is....well....I don't have words.

Oh, yes I do. This:
