Prompt Tuesday: Top Five

Deb asked for a Top Five and I hate to disappoint.


Top Five Grammatical Pet Peeves (not in any order):
  1. Improper use of the pronoun myself
  2. Unnecessary quotation marks
  3. Your vs You're
  4. Using Loose when you mean Lose, which is really a spelling error, but still pisses me off.
  5. Using weary, when you mean leery or wary. Combining the two words doesn't make you extra cautious. It just makes you dumb...and apparently tired.  Again, not really grammatical but still gets my panties in a bunch.

Oh, I think we could put together way more than five, don't you?

But this is a great start.

Makes me crazy when people say they are ferocious readers when they really mean voracious!
