    There, they're, their, it's not so bad.....

    What spelling and grammar blunders make you go ?

    I have two:

    There/they're/their

    and

    it's/its

    It's is only used as a contraction, never possessive.

    There is one way to use there. When people can't figure that out, they're bound to drive me nuts. Is that their goal?

    Anyone else as anal as me?

    You're/your

    I see this one on message boards a lot:

    waist/waste.

    "I just want to put my arms around her waste"
    "I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. "Groucho Marx

    I would lay waste to Fred Durst if I ever see him put his hand on my girls waist.

    Congradulations.

    It's congratulations. With a "t" not a "d." That's why people say, "Congrats!" Not "Congrads!"

    OK OK, for me it's not really the whole "their, there, they're" deal (although that can be grueling). For me it's spelling.

    It's not wierd it's WEIRD.

    Nope, not rediculous, but RIDICULOUS.

    You get my drift.

    Let's use it in a sentence, Akeelah: Prolly. I would probably kick the butt of anyone who wrote prolly. Prolly.

    I can't think of anything else, but I feel the same way. I'll come back if I find something.
