If you don't understand how to write something then don't try and be clever.

kennyp Thu 24-Apr-14 22:28:58

Oh yes, it gives me such irrational rage! In fact I raised this with some friends (lightheartedly) a few weeks ago.... Seen too many 'on routes' on FB. Glad I'm not the only one!

'Definately'

FFS there's autocorrect! How can anyone get that wrong?!

gratefulforwhatihavegot Thu 24-Apr-14 22:32:40

Does anyone remember the Cru de tays thread? (I hope I spelt I right!)

FarToGo Thu 24-Apr-14 22:35:12

It's 'et voila' numbnuts.

Gosh I know some numpties!

kennyp Thu 24-Apr-14 22:35:57

walla?!?!?!??!?!??!?!??!?! bloody hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

gratefulforwhatihavegot Thu 24-Apr-14 22:36:31

No someone did not write walla. I do not believe it to be true!!! Say it ain't so????

I don't think it's trying to be clever though.. If you genuinely haven't seen it written down and know it's 'en route' and just hear it, it's understandable..

Still does my head in though grin like 'of' instead of 'have' and thousands of other examples..

Draws upsets me (as in chest of draws).

I can only assume that's how they pronounce it but...

I judge, I really do.

NCFTTB Thu 24-Apr-14 22:39:43

Yanbu!

feathermucker Thu 24-Apr-14 22:39:50

YANBU angry

I don't correct people, but do have alittle -smug- smile to myself smile

FarToGo Thu 24-Apr-14 22:40:38

Seriously.

In fact it was written as 'and Walla!'

I died a little bit inside. I am a fully signed up grammar enforcement officer.

drnoitall Thu 24-Apr-14 22:40:40

Say lavvy!!!!
Bloody hell that's funny.
Oh yes, per say, makes me laugh.
I remember a friend who would say "he has cut off his nose despite his face!"

RhondaJean Thu 24-Apr-14 22:42:20

Draws and of make me really unhappy.

It's a kinda teeth itch, but I'm damned if I am going to say anything, s I suppose I should thank them for helping me work on my tolerance and become a better person.

HeyBungalowBill Thu 24-Apr-14 22:42:22

I hate on route with a passion.

Can't be doing with "bound" either, eg. London bound
