Learn how to use a comma, then you can bitch about apostrophes.

And if we're going to be picky, numbers less than 10 (or including 10?) should be spelled out, not written numerically.

Kinda, but a bit more with comma's. Though for some reason it feels so... dirty. I know it's really wierd but when I see a non-capital at a name or something, it just feels wierd for me. But I'm not gonna go grammar nazi on the person.

I even know what it means.

Yes! I'm 14, and I have better grammar and spelling than some adults. It annoys me a lot more if people don't use commas though.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/26/11 - 3:20:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not a grammar Nazi, I won't blow a gasket if somebody misses out some punctuation, but it really isn't that hard to put a comma in occasionally.

Wha' if I us' an 'excess'ive a''moun't of them'' i'n the' mo's't in'app'ro'pri'ate places?''''''''''''

i dont see anything wrong with it. its not like some great grammar wizard in the internet is checking our grammar. besides you cant get people to put apstrophies in their words its not like youre going to be able to convince all the people on the inter net to do so plus that also can be said about the use of other grammarical devices such as punctuation marks commas colons semi colons hyphens underlining italics bold face lettering quotation marks and other things as well plus you cant make them use correct sentense which i can also assume makes you quite upset plus there is also capitalization and a whole assortment of other things that could just make everyone sound like their from southern america no offence to those people but you do talk weird and there is the other people that just continue into one massive and boring monologue that just keeps going on and on and on and on.....

Sometimes, but I do occasionally make mistakes.

Eh, no, as long as there is some semblance of meaning in their speech.

hahaha whoaahhh i thought i was like the only one with this pet peeve! hahaha ;)

Not really.

That being said, and nothing personal because a lot of people do it, but for me statements without any kind of end punctuation tend to be an eyesore for me because it looks so fragmented, just incomplete.
10 yrs ago - Thursday 11/10/11 - 5:43:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
i try to only use apostrophes when they are neccessary for clarity.

if lack of proper apostrophe-use doesnt cause ambiguity, i dont use em

although i mess up sometimes
