'09 - Annoying Misspellings.
are a lot of common misspelled words that
people make on the internet, I've probably
used a lot of them myself. The problem arises
when people don't realise they've made a
mistake so they don't bother to look up the

quite a common misspelling so it wasn't that
are lots of words that don't bother me at all
when people misspell them, "Greatful"
instead of "Grateful" doesn't

that drives me insane when it's spelled wrong
is "Your" instead of "You're",
it makes me so angry when people misspell
that expecially when they can't comprehend
that they are two completely different words.

buckle that contain that spelling mistake. I
find it so ironic that the buckle says "Your
