FGS - how hard is it to get this one right??
I've seen these words used incorrectly more times than I care to remember! Also 'your/you're'ARRGGGHH. So irritating. Also when people sign off emails Kind Regards, with the 'regards' with a capital letter! Sorry. Rant over. Having one of those days at work!! Does this irritate anyone else or is it just me? Do I need to get a life and just let it slide?!!

Irritates the hell out of me too - makes the back of my neck prickle and my fist goes to the clench position!

My dh and dc's are both serial offenders grin

Oh thank ladies - I LOVE LOVE LOVE pedant's corner, it's the best! Feeling slightly less cross now after eating some lunch and not opening any dimwitted emails!

I think your absolutely right Lakelover. Their is obviously no thought taken before writing they're e-mails.
Kind Regards

There's no point getting wound up about it. Is they?

That last one's my bugbear, incidentally... wink
