... (incognizant or not), I know it is easy to do. :p Today is my chill day from school stuff, so here it goes for starters 😇 ...

"Muzzle break" instead of "muzzle brake".

"Blueprinting" vs "truing" vs "squaring" an action.

"Effect" vs "affect".

You know the "rules"!

ADDED: This is meant to bring self-awareness, nothing else.

Its not up to you to fix there grammar, but it is up to you to fix you're own. :cool:

Just pulling your chain given you've got some slack time...
"Its not up to you to fix there.......BONUS LESSON: "their"...... grammar, but it is up to you to fix you're own." DNADave....one should practice what one preaches........prima facia evidence.......prosecution rests........do not pass first grade grammar, do advance in life. Rather than pullin' FEENIX's chain, use your slack time to review first grade grammar. Just pullin' your chain, given you've got some slack time. :) :) :)

Hey! It took some effort to mess up that bad! :)

Plus, Ed's good for it.

The completely correct sentence would be "It's not up to you to fix their grammar, but it is up to you to fix your own."

Grammarisms used to bother me some when reading posts. I've realized not everyone is exposed to the proper use of the language. In some areas of this great country I've been asked to repeat myself. The only exception is posts that we can't grasp the intended message due to spelling more than grammar. If you want to be frustrated, try going to English speaking Scotland.

Aye, Laddy..... Recalls one of favorite pics of my dad circa slightly pre-June 6, 1944. In a full dress kilt outfit......bandaged, bloodied head biggest 19 year old smile...."Thanks for holding my ale. WOW, was that fun"......leaning against destroyed jeep purportedly outside Glasgow........cute cup of Lassie hanging onto him. Cliff's Notes version: 4 Navy Hillbillys stole.....er, liberated.......jeep at Londonderry, N Ireland station...preparing for D-Day...... successfully "jumped"it to Scotland (never under estimated the will/resourcefulness of a 19yo kid with time on his hands preparing for war) .......missed high country turn.......rolled it down mountain side.......picked up native Lasses......partied til the cows came home, went back out, and came home several more times......lived to land Normandy D+2......set up radio station in Cherbourg.......hid on top tall building to elude starving German raiding party from Guernsey Island with 88mm on boat.......manned multiple radio sites til Paris liberated......stole another jeep to see Paris (no damage/injury record).......shipped home........French suitcase with lady's and kids clothes showed up on parents doorstep.......family story for the ages. Miss you Dad. You still get smarter....and funnier...... every year.

Or, a true Cockney accent. I had to ride for two hours from Auckland to Hamilton, NZ, once with a driver who had recently come to New Zealand from England. A true Cockney accent. Couldn't understand a word of what he was asking for the first 30 minutes and then maybe every other word for the next hour and a half. Real nice guy, but real hard to understand. I'm sure he thought the same of my South Texas accent and colloquialisms...

A lot of talk about grammar but all I see is a post about spelling which has only incidental relationship to grammar. Also, when people spell things wrong they make us all look just a little dumber. Like the guy at the range that wears his ball cap pointing 40 degrees off to one side.

Dave, in Ireland we went five days listening to our driver telling "Muffy" jokes. Turned out he was saying Murphy. The one about the cat in the bar was the best.
