Grammar Nazi

I admit it.

I understand some people have learning disabilities and can't help their mistakes (I'm the same way with numbers), but think it's a travesty that most of the world has lost all dedication to proper grammar and spelling simply out of laziness. It only showcases your ignorance when you refuse to illustrate the difference between 'your' and 'you're', or 'there', 'their', and 'they're'.

It's neither ignorance nor laziness, this is how much they know. Chill and relax. Unless you are a teacher it's only enabling you to stress over something you don't have control over. I know several languages and I learned to be tolerant to different levels of grammar mastery. Makes it easier to ***** people for what they are not how they spell.

I went to catholic school for twelve years. In elementary school we used the book series "voyages in english." I am a grammar nazi too.

Like a lot of things, people used to put emphasis on how they spoke. There was a difference between their work speech and their common/street speech. Now they are blurred together and people do not seem to care how they sound.

People used to read more. Usually, if you read books, your grammar will be good. You absorb it by osmosis.

I just physically winced reading 'them are nice shoes' !

My biggest ***** is the use of 'them' when it should be 'those'.<br />

Ex:<br />
'Them are nice shoes.'<br />

It is the pinnacle of uneducated for me.
