    I often use the wrong 'there/their/they're' I have noticed. I always edit it though once I realise. If you haven't notcied yet, my typos and mistakes are high in number although, trust me, I am actually very good with spelling and punctuation.... it is just my fingers that aren't.

    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Just a few of them

    Dare you to say that about spoiling dogs to some of us Staffordshire Bull Terriers owners face's, i can guarantee that my fist will be meeting your face hard

    I should clarify - it's not all bad spelling I have a problem with as I know some people actually have problems, etc. It's when people are just really bloody lazy about it i.e. "text speak".

    Another grammar thing that I can't stand is the incorrect use of it's/its. Oh and when people put apostrophes before the "s" in a plural, as in "I have lots of dog's".

    I cannot stand aggressive drivers who drive up your backside when you're going the speed limit. I refuse to get a fine just because of their impatience.

    I also hate being told off by people who work in shops or supposedly "family friendly" restaurants, because they think I'm not supervising my kids properly. My kids are usually not doing anything really bad, just acting a bit silly because they're 4 and 6. Am I supposed to tie them up outside the shop?? Strap them to their seats?? Actually, that might not be such a bad idea LOL.

    Well that was my little whinge, thanks to being told off in Spotlight the other day because of my kids. Grrrrr!!
