omg! I would have to unfriend someone that didn't know basic grammar and spelling..
The worst one I've seen is "go to the gym your fill better"

BelleOnceUponATime Fri 05-Apr-13 17:23:17

I find I make far more typos now that I use an ipad and the autocorrect changes perfectly decent words into others!

I saw this one yesterday:

Sometimes in life u gotta do what u think is ryt

I have one 'friend' who puts 'harms' for arms. Another who doesn't understand how apostrophes work and ALWAYS posts 'i'n'. Makes me want to scratch my eyes out. But if I deleted everyone for bad grammar would be friendless grin.

trinity, Apple autocorrect is awful. It especially likes to substitute 'if' for 'of' and it's so fiddly to go back and correct it confused.

and another one on a selling page "gawjus size 10 dress never bin warn"
what is wrong with these people?!!

olivertheoctopus Fri 05-Apr-13 18:36:54

Urgh. Esp to the "gawjus dress never bin warn". My ILs are northern and drop their h's but they text without them too: "as e ad a nice birthday?'.

I hate bad spelling but autocorrect seems to change things and I don't realise before posting so I end up with appalling grammatical mistakes.

olivertheoctopus Fri 05-Apr-13 18:37:44

Plus MIL actually can't spell birthday so all cards/texts etc say 'brithday'. Grrrr

Can you spell CHAT, OP?

LilyLovesRoses Fri 05-Apr-13 19:47:09

Can you spell CHAT, OP?

I don't get it confused

gallifrey Fri 05-Apr-13 19:50:28

Another one I just thought of - people that spell angel incorrectly. On Facebook the other day my friend put a picture of her little angle asleep!

cookielove Fri 05-Apr-13 19:51:17

Ha ha i would have mocked them!!!!

LilyLovesRoses Fri 05-Apr-13 19:52:07

Oooh this thread should have been in Chat? Right ...

I've seen loads of threads on here that aren't AIBU - so what?

The OP isn't the first to do it and won't be the last.

AIBU has more traffic. Stop being a bitch about it.
