Please consider learning the difference between the following words.

They're (they are)
Their (they posses something)
There ( as in "there was a frog family sitting on their little lily pad and they're really cute." or "their sailboat is over there, in the harbor. They're planning on sailing to their summer house at noon.")

Your car (you posses it - it's yours)
You're (you are)
"You're going to your colonoscopy appointment this afternoon, aren't you?"

Would HAVE - not would OF ("I would have given one hundred dollars to be able to read some of the comments without developing a massive headache")
Would've = Would have. There is no such thing as WOULD OF. It doesn't exist in the English language. "Would of" literally has no meaning. Please Don't type it.
Should've = Should have. There is no term "should OF" in the English language. Don't use it. It doesn't mean anything.


Sorry to be such a @@@@@y person right now but I seriously have a headache from trying to decipher some of the comments and it's unfortunate.

I don't expect much from others, this isnt a dissertation. As long as I grasp the concept of what they're trying to communicate, I dont care if they use they're, their or there.

I do appreciate periods and paragraphs though, just makes it easier to read.

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk.

Posses - the plural of the word 'posse' - a body of men or women summoned by a sheriff to enforce the law.
Possess - to own or have in one's possession.

Sorry to be such an arsehole, Miss :frown:

Reading comments helps me to communicate with stroke patients.

This forum is a representation of drivers. Without a language proficiency requirement, bad grammar will ensue. If an English proficiency exam was implemented in my local market, the number of U/L drivers would drastically decrease. Taxi Cabs would see a 95% reduction.

While its not an english class and some minor grammatical mistakes are to be expected and are not a bother when someone is really bad at it it makes them sound less intelligent and can even make their post or comment not understandable what really drives me crazy is when people use run on sentences because then it can be really hard to understand what they are trying to say especially in cases where their point is already pointless anyway sometimes even if they used proper english it would still sound like a basket case but there are definitely a few on here that don't use periods or ever start a new paragraph and that as i already said is a pet peeve of mine and i wish they would work just a little to try to change that otherwise an occasional misapplication of a word is tolerable

I guess you will have to adapt and over come. Now that this is a third world county, think it will get any better ?

Now what will that be, Mint Chip or Rocky Road.

Hey wait a minute. Since your in that 3%, ( as per that other thread ), what the He!! are you doing here ? Begs the question.
