More people we can safely dislike #22

Oh man. I have been subjected to appalling grammar this week. I want to put these folks under citizens arrest … for the murder of the English language!

  1. People who say “360°” when they meant “180°,” as in “His attitude went 360°.” That doesn’t mean he changed his attitude. That means it’s right back where it started, fucktard.
  2. People who mix up there, their and they’re.
  3. People who can’t recall the simple ‘i’ before ‘e’ rule.
  4. Amerikans who kant spell rite. (See below)

    Hang on a minute. Are there Minutemen in Detroit?

  • StevieC

    People who don’t know the difference between it and it’s
    Twitterbators who name-drop celebrities
    Twitterbators who live on facebook and complain about not having any quality family time
    People who don’t realize that it’s okay to ignore their cellphone while they are driving, in a meeting, having lunch, a conversation, sex, or a crap.
    Drivers who don’t know the difference between merge and yield

    What really burns my butthole is those Merkans who haven’t got a clue about labour and neighbour and honour.

    Plus these gay spellcheckers. Oooh, I don’t know how to spell “butt hole” properly!

    Pso they’re!

  • Nicolette

    People who refuse to use spell check before firing off an email, twitter blurb, blog post, etc…..

    My mom is a teacher so she has always taught me to say “I did well” instead of “I did good,” so it always bothers me when I hear someone else say it. Another one is “me and the girls” when it should be “the girls and I,” as in: “The girls and I hung out at the nude beach.” 😛

    or, “I was hanging out at the nude beach.”

  • StevieC

    Anyone who says “that’s a good thing”. You’re not Martha and I hope that you’re not dumb as a post. Say “that’s good” and be done with it.

    People who starts a sentence with “I don’t want to be (mean, nosy, rude, ignorant, a total ass, etc), but …”. Well, guess what? You are whatever word you put in those brackets.

    People who use “To be totally honest” or “To tell the truth” are basically telling you that everything else they say is a lie.

    or too much sun for that matter 😯

  • Coley7367

    The word is used out of context, but it’s merely missing a space. The Lana Gauge is the scale by which all actresses should be ranked.
    “Great job, that performance was totally Peyton Place!”
    “Don’t kid yourself, it was barely Falcon Crest”.

    On a more serious note, I hate misuse of i.e. and e.g. Particularly loathsome are those that use either in conversation. That’s right up there with my second favorite… air quotes.

  • Coley7367

    My mistake, I see now that they’ve even managed to misspell gauge. There really isn’t any hope is there? 😥

  • Kristi

    People who put apostrophe’s in the wrong place’s.

    That annoys me to no end.

  • Paul Perton

    What about apostrophe’s for plural’s; TV’s CD’s and DVD’s

  • regurgitatedmonkeybrains

    People from Illinois that fail to silence the ‘s’ 😐
    People who actuate enlighted vocabulary to make oneself appear exquisite :puke:
    Whites that speak black :wtf:
    People who misuse words like “homophobe” (trust me fudgepackers, we are not afraid of you!) :gay:
    Those who spit when they talk 👿
