For me it would probably be:

Not reading the OP properly and going off on a tangent
Pulling a thread totally OT in order to have a two way jokey conversation with someone else that goes on for pages and pages
Looking up someone's posting history and saying 'well on 5th April 2006 you said this and now you're saying that.

"man up" and "suck it up" annoy me intensely.

On the response of "well, actually I'm dyslexic" - I did something twatty in that vein yesterday. Was working on something with my boss and he wrote something, and was staring at it so I went " It's S E C not S C E" and he went "you know I'm dyslexic right?"

me <-- twat

I temper my vast, vast, vast vocabulary depending on my audience Honey ...

At a vair smart black-tie do, DH managed to vom a huge puddle just infront of the lift doors in the foyer of a posh hotel...3 seconds later the lift door opened to reveal 8 people, all in glittery evening dress...they had to leap over DH's vom-puddle to get out the lift...

Naturally, I did what any loving girlfriend would do, I walked off and pretended I was nothing to do with DH grin

If you get snippy and defensive when other people point out your mistakes, that is your failing, not theirs! How can you improve if you don't know where you are going wrong?

HoneyDragon Fri 25-Jan-13 13:21:11

Yet you used many three times wink

LaQueen Fri 25-Jan-13 13:19:13

I don't mind having my spelling mistakes pointed out to me...I surely can't be expected to correctly spell the many, many, many thousands of words in my vastly impressive vocabulary hmm

I get annoyed when people I don't love point out my mistakes because I make loads and I am snippy and defensive.
People who love me can correct my mistakes if they buy me a drink first.

That's very true. There's always going too bee a floor. t

I think you need to be quite ruthless for ruth.p

TuftyFinch Fri 25-Jan-13 12:32:49

Erudite is one of my favourite words. Unlike ruth, which isn't.

FunnysInLaJardin Fri 25-Jan-13 12:31:26

I pucked rum and black into my cousins bath when I was 14 too Exit it must have been quite the thing

HoneyDragon Fri 25-Jan-13 12:29:28

The people who do comment on spelling and grammar do so as they are neither witty or erudite to post anything that would provide aid or amusement.

They should not be criticised, just pitied.

BIWI Fri 25-Jan-13 12:05:40

See - I can't even tell people off properly.

FunnysInLaJardin Fri 25-Jan-13 12:03:48

I think they are a cunt too and will often say as much. Indeed once a thread I started in outrage on this very subject was deleted for being a thread about a thread hmm angry and I only did that last one because I wanted to type bangry!
