    "Your" Dog got away. "You're" Upset.

    I saw it over "There". Over at "Their" House. Not that hard honestly.

    If you're going to try

    and have a normal conversation with me, please at least try and use proper grammar:)

    I'm reading a bunch of morons argue on Facebook

    about a news post and I seriously think that I've seen it all now. "There is a big DIFFERENT'S between a real gun and a fake one." It honestly amazes me how stupid people are! That isn't a mere typo, it's 100% pure stupidity.

    Okay, if someone were using an old cell phone

    that only had a number pad then I would understand messages like "how r u" However, when someone is using a computer or smartphone, as I assume nearly everyone posting on this site is, then I cannot understand why some people don't actually spell out words and use punctuation...

    I'm sorry but if you are over the age of 18

    and you type like a 6 year old please do me a favor and don't message me. I really am a nice person and I love talking and meeting new people but I am tired of struggling to understand people.

    I was on my way home one day from the markets

    with my 4 year old daughter. Needless to say some hoodlums were using street slang . My daughter wouldn't stop crying after hearing their poorly spoken english. After that day she couldn't sleep and wouldn't eat her cabbage. So I had to institutionalise her. Don't forget good...

    I can't stand it when people say,

    "John and I..." in every instance. Ex. 1 - John and I fell into a ditch. Ex. 2 - That's what happened to John and I. WRONG. One ought to say, "That's what happened to John and me." There is a time to say, "... and I," and there is a time to say, "... and me." People are in...

    Whenever I get messages on here

    that say, "hey how r u" or something similar, I have to ignore them. It can't be that hard to type, "Hey, how are you?" Spelling things out can really make all the difference!

    I met an Asian woman on omegle yesterday.

    Surprisingly she had great grammar compared to hundreds of other people I've met online from many different countries. We had a nice talk, even though omegle kinda stresses me out because it's hard to know what to talk about. The nordic gods bless her.

    Seriously universal dimwits,

    English isn't that hard of a language! When it's your first language, how hard is it to get the whole your/ you're and their/ they're right? (Except when autocorrect on a not-so-smartphone apparently, messes it up if you type fast enough!)
