Something that really niggles me, is the miss use of words in peoples posts (mainly on another site I frequent) such as:
Bought / Brought
Your / You’re
There / Their / They’re
Here / Hear
To / Too
Of / Off

There are so many many more, but I’d be here all night!

Ooh, one more I HAVE to add is:
Lend /Borrow - As in “can you borrow me twenty quid” or “can I lend your drill”

I don't proclaim to be the World's best speller and I accept genuine mistakes do happen, but do they actually teach spelling and grammer in schools these days?

:p :p You would have to get it right yourself first, Bob! :p :p

miss use - misuse
peoples - people's
grammer - grammar

Well done, it only took 2 1/2 hrs for someone to find my mistake's!
I was going to make them even more obvious, but didn't want to make it too easy.

It's exactly the type of thing that winds me up.

Of course, Bob, what a brilliant test! :p

Your incorrect grammatical error in "mistake's", is highlighted, it is plural by the way. Therefore, it should read "mistakes".

youz carnt tel uvvers wot carnt be told, is dat wot iz windin' ya up, Boob? :lol:

:oops: An error must be incorrect to be an error. If it is an incorrect error, there's no error! Shame on me. :lol:

Come on Bob, you are slacking, could have had me on that point! :p

You guy's are slacking.
In my last post, my name is spelt using a lower case letter b instead of a capital B

Ever wished you hadn't started something?


Changing the subject quickly, I've just returned from London having taken "Wifey" away for a short break.
We went to see "The Sound of Music" at The Palladium last night and I can recommend it to anyone. If I liked it, it must have been good!

"Doe, a deer, a female deer, Ray, a drop of golden sun"

Quality!

Has anyone seen "Rat Pack"? Fook me, that was excellent too!


As for your spelling and grammar, young Master Bob, 6/10 must try harder! :lol: aha, an idea, check General Chat......
