I must admit I'm a bit pedantic about it, and get really frustrated at work when I have to check reports where the grammar is unbelievably poor, especially when the reports are to be given out to customers!

One of my pet hates though is where you see particular bike parts for sale on ebay - "break leavers"!

I'd like to think I'm pretty good at spelling!!!.....what shocks me is how people still use the wrong spelling of words. ie: there, their, to, too...etc etc.

Their schools must have been rubbish!!!!

:?

I generally struggle with pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcaniconiosis but that's about it really.

Always was good at spelling and was always good at remembering ways to spell words.

Autocorrect on the iPhone is bloody annoying if you don't spot it changing a word for you..
