Would-of, Should-of, Could-of

Since when did the English speaking world start this shite? Why can people not simply say should've? How is it any easier writing it a ****ed up way that doesn't make sense?

Thank you. Just brilliant.

It's because people write how they speak. It's a confusion between the word 'of' and the suffix 've which denotes a contraction of two words, usually involving 'have'.
As we're on the subject I'll vent a little here.
There: meaning a condition a being
Their: meaning belonging to
They're: a contraction of 'they are'
Don't just pick the top one and use it universally.

Also people using 'to' when they mean 'too' (or 'as well as')
Also people writing 'on route' instead of the actual phrase 'en route' (French term)

I'm not perfect myself but I hate the fact that people simply don't care if they get it wrong.

I hate the constant interchanging of 'Lose' and 'Loose'.

Thank god! People who talk sense. I don't understand The purpose of using text speak when it was originally used to save money when people paid per text. Now it's just stupid with predictive text etc. I often wonder how people get jobs sometimes.

If you were applying for a job would you write your cv like a retard or use proper English to describe yourself? Doesn't make sense to me.

Some people are genuinely illiterate but the ones who actually received an education and still speak/write as if they're banging their head on a keyboard pee me right off. Init.

It annoys the sh*t out of me when people fail to use any kind of punctuation what-so-ever when I'm reading it in my mind I run out of breath because I have no idea where to pause and it's incredibly frustrating also often you have no idea where a sentence was meant to end and another begin so it's just a string of words thrown together randomly which is unbelievably confusing. Full. Stop.

When I come to power I'm going to enforce a license to use a keyboard and/or mobile phone. A license to breed is also on the to do list.

I'm constantly correcting people on Facebook or my mrs when she's writing things down..its a crucifiction of my language and it really winds me up

the worst one is the old "there, their, they're" argument and the "your, you're" discussion

GO TO SCHOOL!!!

maybe this should be in the "what grind my gears" section ;)

You need to get out more, period!!

I know how to spell and i hate "text talk" and i try and use punctuation where i see fit, but if i spell the odd word wrong people know what i mean.
There are 171,476 and you want me to remember all, as if!! I suppose you do eh!!
So all in all go get a hobby instead of critasizing people because they got a few letters wrong, Loser

I'm with Tilly on this one, so what, I might get a few words wrong or spell something wrong. I'm not the worlds worst at english but I'm far from being the worlds best.

There's a big difference between txt speak and being unable to spell, 9x out of 10 if a word is mis spelt you can still read and understand it unlike the txt crap.

Some people might not be able to help it, so could this be classed as breaking rule number 5 of the forums rules.
