No parking break and no driver... so unit comes rolling down the road, drifts to the left and "closes" our kitchen slide! The GOOD NEWS, no one was hurt... I had just exited our coach and saw it coming so I was able to yell at the DW to get clear!! I shudder to think of what could have happened if I hadn't seen it coming...!!

Example. If your BRAKEs fail to work, it could BREAK your vehicle and some bones, and you might be on an extended BREAK from your job.

Back to your regularly scheduled waste of time.
Now that everyone will surely take your grammar and spelling tip, how about working on to, too, two, and perhaps of and off?

I have a lot of pet peeves. My wife says I am getting more grouchy as I get older.

It's piques my interest not peak or peek.

Calling wasps bees.

Saying bring when take is the proper word. As in "Jump in I will bring you to town". No you won't. You will take them to town. Bring is from there to here. Take is from here to there. This is so prevalent that it has become pretty well accepted, but it still annoys me.

Using come instead of go. I am coming on a cruise. Nope you are going on a cruise.

Calling the floor the ground when you are inside a building.

There are many more.

My mom

My mother used to refer to the ceiling as the 'top wall'.

My DW so often puts words in the wrong order, uses strange substitutions etc that I am her interpreter. Yeah, she's blonde. So I have become an Eblondics expert.

Brakes, Breaks, What's the difference?

How about "I seen". I have such an urge to stop them in their tracks and correct them. "I HAVE SEEN"

Unfortunately if you use the wrong word but spell it correctly, a spell-check program won't tell you. A context checking program would, but I'm not sure there are any on the market.

One of my pet grammar peeves is people misusing "loose" when they mean "lose" - this is so prevalent.
Of course, when one gets really silly and shows a complete failure of basic Third Grade English skills and simply refuses to use capitalization and punctuation (I so remember Mrs. McKenzie drumming that into me in third grade), then I consign them to the ignore list.... aka. "The Pit".
Use of Text Speak will have the same result.
Gets rid of the chaff.

The occasional misspelled word doesn't bother me, but there are limits. Yeah, I was my team's Documentalist at work......

See: prolly: definition of prolly in Oxford dictionary (American English) (US)
Maybe you should tell the publisher of the Oxford Dictionary that prolly is not a word.

This thread just breaks me up! Some of us have a lack of spelling and grammar skills, but we are still ahead of what is graduating from schools.
