I feel your pain. And borrow and lend aren't synonymous.

Hear hear (or "here here" as I keep seeing on hear here angry)

There is a thread that has just started by saying 'we brought a house'.
It might be a brilliant funny thread but I just can't read it.

I have a friend. She say brought when she means bought. She runs a fucking shop!

I can't bare it (well I can, but you wouldn't want to see it if I did) grin
Itch and scratch have different meanings.

My kids always got confused with these two words, so I'd say to them "Did you buy it or bring it?"

Even now, at 20, I hear my eldest say to himself "I went to the shop to buy it, so I bought it"

Don't forget loose and lose. If I see another sentence about loosing weight I'll lose my mind.

His instead of he's really grinds my gears!

Not the same but the worst spelling error I've ever seen was someone selling a 'Chester drawers' hmm

I've seen Chester draws on here too.
