Did Eddie reply, "ho, ho?"

I know I like fragment sentences and often don't realize I'm doing it. I also like - and (). And... <-- oh no, fragment.

But I do do get annoyed by people that don't use any capitalization or punctuation.

There's also a couple
of people
I have seen
that post like this.

I imagine
And read
Their posts
like a poem.

Totally. Do that all the time. On here. Not in a proper letter or other formal writing. See? All these incomplete sentences. Fun to do. Gotta let me do it. Gotta let me spell "gotta" soooooooo don't want to make a whole sentence and sound like a stuffed shirt. Hahaha

I am a fan of grammar lol. My 11th grade english class was basically all grammar, all the time (and vocab!). We learned some kind of obscure grammar rules in that class, like some common phrasings that are actually incorrect. It annoys me a bit because some things are common enough that I hear/read all the time, and I can't help but pick out the grammar error. Also when we would write papers in that class, I am pretty sure he did not grade us based on the actual content of the paper - he was just checking for correct grammar.

I get on my mom's case all the time - she likes to say "I didn't do nothing." AHHHH like nails on a chalkboard.

Mistakes happen though, I know I'm certainly not a grammar expert. There are the basics that get on my nerves... I do appreciate punctuation, and paragraphs, and spelling out complete words instead of just writing "u" (unless you're sending me a text). But unless I were applying for a job where writing was the focus... I hope my grammar is never analyzed so harshly!

Hehe, I live in the south. And there are some interesting ways of talking down here. "I didn't do nothing." <- That is extremely common. Another thing that is extremely common is the whole 'ghetto' speech. "Tbh, Hey Wife We Been Married For Some Time Now ANd Just Wanna Say I I I I I I I LOveeee Youuu HAHA Bt I Miss You Ash U Gettin SO Tall Me ANd Ur SUch A Great Bball Player Guhh We Gotta Hang Soon And U Betta Ball Like A Bodilly This Season"

I see this ALL. THE. TIME. I know I don't have perfect or even near perfect grammar. As in, I totally misspelled grammar but spell check saved me. But they TRY to talk like that, and it's kind of annoying. Like really annoying. Oh, there I go again, sentence fragment.

Yeah, that's my big pet peeve
Oh gosh, this. I usually skip those posts and pray somebody else quotes it with the Cole's Notes version added on. I actually had to try to reread that a couple times just to make sure there wasn't a message buried in there.

Everybody makes mistakes, especially on forums and texts. I've been known to REALLY overuse commas,,,,,,,, . Somebody staged and intervention and I'm in comma rehab, so bear with me (I looked that one up, wouldn't have wanted to get accidentally naked with you all). Mistakes don't bother me all that much unless they're my own.

Forums and texts are considered the same as informal speech. If your missive is job-related it should be formal, within context.

That being said I did tell somebody on a forum to go to their cutlery drawer, get a spoon, and pop off their darned "!" key.
