    Drives Me Crazy....

    It drives me crazy when I am making a typo. It makes me even more crazy when its a public typo, like when I post a new experience or post something on facebook. Just drives me mad.

    It really drives me nuts to make a typo.

    I try to fix it and the little bar never lands where you need it. Then when you finally get the bar where you need it you delete too much and then you have to retype that. It drives me crazy.

    I don't proof read so it's inevitable

    that I'll post some things with typos. It's annoying when I have to delete, then re-post things just so I can fix one tiny typo that manages to completely mess up the rest of what I wrote. :p

    I feel really awkward

    when I make a typo. I don't know why. I feel even more uncomfortable when I'm having a serious conversation with someone and it happens.

    Very Embarrassing Typo !

    Ah, I'm so embarrased :( So yesterday, a nice girl added me to her friends circle and then sent me an e-mail asking how are you and such. I checked my e-mail today and saw it and since I always appreciate people who add me, I often end the reply with a thank you. However, the S...

    They Annoy Me!

    I hateeeee making typos! I really hate when I see a mistake after I've sent or submit something.. and I hate it even more when I can't edit and change it right. It's so annoying. I use google a lot when I find it hard to spell a word.. It's like everything HAS to be spelt right...

    It Annoys Me.

    I've noticed that, as of late, the quality of my typing has been lacking, with many mistakes. Much of this has to do with my habit of editing comments on the fly (to change phrasing and the like) without doing much in the way of proofreading. Making mistakes annoys me, as they...

    I am the kind of person

    who proofreads her texts to check for errors and typos. Yep, I know. I'm kind of weird!

    It Drives Me Insane!!

    I MUST correct it - sometimes I'll think about it after and actually get up out of bed or stop what I'm doing to go back and fix it!    Even if my "typo" is just a sentence that could have been worded better... in answers, I'll sometimes delete and...

    Why Don’t People Use Spell Check?

    Because the world is lived out on the internet so much anymore I read a lot of articles and stories on it and I am left wondering why people don’t use spell check to check their work when they are done writing. What do they think that function in word processing programs is for...

    Constantly Backspacing

    I have always been a relatively careful person - takes me a decade to do math equations, for example, because I have to check every step at least twice to make sure that I'm not making a mistake. This perfectionist behavior also carries over into my writing.. I've always been...

    I Always Proofread Any Post For Typos.

    I absolutely hate typos! Which are common for me, because I'm not an awesome typist. I always re-read any post before I post it anywhere.
