    i try my best to use the right form of words,

    Annoyance

    The one thing that really annoys me is when people constantly corrects your grammar/spelling. I mean are you kidding me?! This is the internet for crying out loud, and it's not like you're typing a real essay. If you want to be a grammar Nazi then go right ahead and correct...

    I am a total grammar Nazi

    but I'm slowly realizing its not the most attractive quality. Trying to curb it. Very hard when you were raised by two people who do nothing but read.
