I know some people can't help it, I get that.

BUT I've just seen a photo on FB of a Mum & daughter and someone has comment 'so pressures' - I am assuming they mean precious!!

Any other classics you've seen?

Names spelt wrong like Zackery instead of Zachary.

Aloud instead of allowed

INoahGuy · 02/11/2018 22:31

“Would of” instead of “would’ve.”

jarhead123 · 02/11/2018 22:33

Someone on my FB shared a post about other mistakes, apparently someone actually wrote 'Noah fence' and 'I hate grapes. They discuss me' LOL

I drive past a nursery called “Sunny Dayz” occasionally.

Athena51 · 02/11/2018 22:35

You see 'reign it in' when they mean 'rein it in ' a lot, that irritates me.

ree348 · 02/11/2018 22:36

His instead of He's

NothingTraLaLa · 02/11/2018 22:36

Upmost when they mean utmost.

Loose instead of lose
Chest of draws

ileclerc · 02/11/2018 22:38

It's to bloody hard with autocorrect to type them wrong but I have lots!

ileclerc · 02/11/2018 22:38

And I cocked up with a spelling mistake. Serves me right.

KrispyKremes · 02/11/2018 22:38

I have a friend who always uses "why" instead of "while"

She's northern and I'm southern. So could be a regional thing.

"Little coffee why I wait for school to finish" etc.

LittleBittyKitty · 02/11/2018 22:39

These two give me the absolute rage.

Chester draws. Just no. It's A CHEST OF DRAWERS!

Sequences. No. They're SEQUINS!

WTAF is wrong with some people?

TheChippendenSpook · 02/11/2018 22:40

Wandering when it's meant wondering

Polkapjs · 02/11/2018 22:44

Defiantly must be a phone thing as I see it a lot
