Being retired means this is all small stuff and not on my radar. I had an acronym but reconsidered to save the moderator from trying to consider if it warranted some action to save the audience from permanent brain injury or even worse as this run on sentence ending in a preposition may all it takes to do it to.

My southern born wife says that if you unscrew something, or let someone or something go, then you have turned it/them "aloose." (She adds the 'A')

Also, to see if something is spoiled or to check an odor she ways to smell "of-it."

Anybody seen the movie Idiocracy? A comedy about the seemingly inevitable slide toward the lowest common denominator. Would be funnier if it was not so scarily priescent. Look up the plot on Wikipedia!

If everyone spelled everything correctly you would be without a pet peeve. Would you miss it like you would a pet dog? Life's too short to sweat the small fecal matter.

This is the one that has begun to bother me as of late and that is the incorrect usage of the word OUT.

For example. I need to change OUT my oil. I'm going to separate OUT the laundry. Somebody can get OUT of the car, but is it necessary to change OUT the light bulb? You can take change OUT of your pocket but is it necessary to change OUT my pants? I have heard many other examples of the misuse of this word. Begin to listen for it and it will jump out at you when you become aware of how often it is misused. It's also an example of being redundant.

Listen to the news casters on radio and TV or just about anybody on TV, talk shows, movies and just about everything. They all are very bad when it comes to misusing the word OUT. I believe it has come from people wanting to place a greater emphasis on a message that they are trying to get across.

There's one more thing. There is no such word as SNUCK. The past tense of sneak is sneaked and not SNUCK. You will also hear that one very often. As a matter of fact I can't remember the last time I heard anybody on the TV say sneaked. It is always SNUCK. I know some of you may say that it has been accepted today as being OK to say SNUCK.

Ditto on that. My southern wife and I have been together 4 years. I still at time have to ask her to repeat herself slowly.

I'm married to a southerner and have to ask him to spell some words because I cannot understand him. We're married for almost 25 years.

Most of those errors would pass a spell checker. Maybe that is why they are becoming so prolific.
Here is a monstrosity constructed of similar errors. This little story actually has no misspelled words.

Won sap pun a tine dare washer ladle gull culled Goal Deluxe zoo leave din dissenter offer lodge forced widow mutter sander fodder.

Ones window ladle gull and/or pear rents swear aweigh, dare hop penned topaz buy tree beers -- ham other beer, ha dotty beer, inner ladle bay be beer.

Don't confuse the issue.

I haven't laugh this much sťance I seen the move Mad,Mad, Mad world.
If I misspelled any wards you can blame it on my Spell Check.
Some or I should say all of the words that have different meaning get me.
Like the following.
To, too or two.
Then we have there or their.
I could go on but who care?
I think I drove my wife nuts asking her about the words
that sound the same but were spelled different ways.
Just a thought.

Then there are those geniuses who use that finger to point out things sometimes, who are really clueless that they are being offensive to others...and it is really only offensive because the other person will not control their own mind enough to quit thiking about it.
