Thank you, thank you, thank you. (I am not alone!)

I feel your pain.

But DS and DD say "should of" and "off of". I model correct language and they disregard it. ARGH grin.

Thank you

<long silent scream>

I read a post the other day and the entire thing was 'should of done this' etc.

I didn't comment as it wasn't appropriate but it drove me demented!

My DH does this and it drives me MENTAL. When point it out he just rolls his eyes. AARGH.
What irritates me most of all is that I'm a second language English speaker and he isn't, so he SHOULD know better.

Thank you! I am constantly correcting DHs emails because he actually types this! Drives me potty.
