It’s no secret that bad grammar is one of my pet peeves. Sure, I occasionally will misspell a word or make a typo on my blog (I AM human after all), but there’s a fine line between a few mistakes and constantly using bad grammar. What bugs me the most is that we learned this stuff back in middle school, yet so many people in their 20’s and 30’s still don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re”. Sigh. Here’s a small lesson I like to call “Grammar with Rachel”, which shows you how to properly use each of the words with a short sentence.
Lose vs. loose– “After you lose the weight, your pants will be loose on you.”
You’re vs your– Your terrible grammar makes me think you’re dumb.
Two, too and to- Two boyfriends is just too much for me to handle.
Their, there, they’re- There are people who use their job title to make us think they’re important (but they’re not).
What are your grammar or spelling pet peeves?
