farkin writting and stuff like that

so, your on the way to wherever, and you're friend tell you this story about some doofus who can't spell or do grammar.

And its definately the only thing you can do to stop yourself just laughing and writting a txt to say what a looser the person is.

And then you realise that person is you.

I've had the most mortifying time with spelling mistakes lately.

Mostly they happen when I'm not looking. It is killing me. I sent David Slack an email that said "you're" instead of "your". Am I 12?

I apologise to everyone in the universe, and blame the fact that until about a year ago I didn't give a rat's arse about spelling.

would that be rat's arse?

you should really stop blogging about spelling and grammar, it just encourages pedants like I.

i find myself mistyping the you're/your thing, even though i DO KNOW the proper use of each.

it's the whose/who's that gets my brain all jumbled up.

Editter, I do what I can to keep the people entertained.

I have however changed the rat's arse for you. Any further mistakes you could detect?

And Oy, yes. I wouldn't know where to start.

grammar and spelling words correctly is way over rated. I prefer to be a free spirit. If people don't understand me they can read someone elses blog. : )

I blame Bill Gates, I swear his software auto-incorrects words.

very pleased with my top 10 ranking for the phrase 'loose the looser', I must say. ;-)

although if you allow porn google searches, I daresay I won't end up on the front page.

I get a lot of hits from it though.

noizy said...

I can imagine you would. ;)

Martha - I totally feel your pain. I once sent my resume (CV) to a man named Bennett Aaron, addressed it properly, and then made my cover letter salutation "Dear Mr. Bennett,..."

Oh, yeah, and in the letter I claimed to be detail-oriented.

Needless to say...I didn't get the job. Whoopsie.

Ha! Mr Aaron must have realised his name was wrong before then though?
