I guess you can call me a Grammar Nazi
I have a friend, on FB, who drives me insane! She has this terrible habit of confusing words. For example:
“I think her red dress is prettier then yours.”
“Okay. I’ll be there the same time as you than.”
It get’s worse! She uses the word “whether” when she means “rather”.
She uses the word “weather” when she means “whether”…
“I hate this snowy whether.”
…and worst of all…she confuses the words “accept” and “except”.
“I would go too, accept I don’t have a sitter.”
“I’m sorry, I just can’t except your apology.”
I’ve tried to gently explain what she’s doing; and tried to help her correct her mistakes. Let me tell you, the mistake was mine…
“GRAMMAR NAZI! I don’t recall asking for your advise.”
Conversations filled with these “confused words” leave me chewing on my tongue and pulling out my hair.
Tell me… what “confused words” do you hate the most?
