Am I the only one who's like this?

I get so drawn away from people who can't spell and punctuate properly.

I mean, I know, it's just text, but come on!

You can't put "Your/You're/You/ You are" instead of "ur/u/u r"????

You can't capitalize your sentences??? It's fine if you don't want to, but let one make up for the other!

Baby talk is different!

I get the same way. People need to use proper English if they're not using baby talk :roll:

I'm exactly the same! I've always loved language and can't stand text speak, my brother is 17 and actually says "lol" instead of laughing and "soz" instead of sorry...I told him he couldn't be that sorry if he couldn't get bothered to say the extra 3 letters and he just said "lol"...and don't even get me started on your/you're etc!

Given that I work as an English teacher, it frustrates me a lot when people can't spell, or use punctuation correctly.

So it can totally drive me insane at times as someone who cherishes the written word however........

I sucked in grammar and spelling in school and type with four fingers on my best day. Sometimes I just give in and acknowledge even spell check isn't gonna work or my fingers will never keep up with my brain.

I completely agree. Outside of "Baby Talk" I do not find it acceptable, this being said from a man who never did well in English Literature classes.

I can't take people seriously who misspell things.

This is probably one of my biggest pet peeves. Baby talk is cute, being lazy isn't :\ Like, if the person just isn't the best writer...that's one thing...but if they're obviously just not trying at all, it's a major annoyance! :>.<:

*giggles*

Why does it frustrate you when people use punctuation correctly?

Or, um, were you using that comma incorrectly just then? :twisted:

It's the error of the modern age. These devices we all use do all thinking for us. Why correct when you can autocorrect? Is it not exactly right? Eh....its close enough. Drives me mad. I used to remember phone numbers....not any more, lol.
