did you here we are all Nazis?

 

 

A'm sorry Mr. Sun King, but A respect you a lot less because of that. Also, A would just like to say that A AM NOT A  NAZI!!!!paul-mccartney

Although, when A was younger, like a year or two ago, A wanted to join a Nazi Club or maybe the KKK Club. My mom wasn't very happy about it when A told her though, so A changed my mind.

Those people are big fat meanie heads anyway though, so A was okay with it.a-hard-days-night-paul-11

NOO! Not that kind of Nazi! I think they mean Grammar Nazi, which is when someone is really uber strict about grammar and spelling and stuff. Not bad Nazis from WWII!!!

I wasn't serious (My gosh, don't people look at my signature ever?). Gadhafi, the crazy Libyan leader, called all the countries who are in the whole "no-fly zone" "New Nazis". I wasn't serious before.

No. a-hard-days-night-george-10

(But it may have been beneficial to say Grammar Nazis in the OP.) 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I hate it when people think im dumb. And if you think im dumb hear this: I recently took a reading level test to see my reading range for school, I got 5.0 to 13.0. Thats a college freshman people!


well, to be blatantly honest it's 5th grade to 1 year graduate.

I'm in 7th grade. Im reading 6 grades above everyone else in my class.

 

I'm soo jealous! I'm in the same grade (going into eighth), and I'm reading at a tenth grade level, according to my teacher. It's a personal pet peeve of mine; the jocks in school love to work with me, and it makes the girls jealous, and so, at the end of the day, the only friends I have are Beatle fans.

Pet peeves, let's see… Hate to say it, but I'm another one who is kind of a grammar Nazi.

I hate it when people say 'there's' instead of 'there are'. Example: 'There's animals at the zoo'. 

I also hate it when people say 'good' instead of 'well', i.e. :'You did good on your test!'

gah. yeah. And to add to that one, UNNECESSARY APOSTROPHE'S.

They drive me up the wall. You do not add an apostrophe every time you use a plural, people.

I do skip out on the odd capitalization though. As illustrated above.

 

Another pet peeve: when my brother borrows my car and leaves anything in it. Including garbage. Infuriating.

And confusing 'where' with 'were'. I swear I once saw a copy of Agatha Christie's 'And Then There Where None' in a digital book library. Absolutely infuriating!

Or even just a word ending in s.

"He fill's in hi's censu's and send's it off in the post to the national archieve's, so that the policemen' dont arrest him for hi's crime's."
Obivously that's an exaggeration, but there's a significant section of the population who have no idea what a simple piece of punctuation like the apostrophe does. I mean, I could understand not understanding the semi-colon (though that isn't as tricky as people make out), but the apostrophe?!?

Standing in a que whilst the checkout operator talks to their friend for what seems an age. I came to be served not stand in a que whilst they natter about who knows what. Serve Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I actually complained when one friend of a checkout server skipped the que after a fire alarm went off and we were allowed back in. Despite others also saying she had jumped the que the cashier told us that if we werent satisfied we could go to another till, also with a que!!! Needless to say i am now served with disdain and no hint of good customer service skills.

Arghh! exactly. I see it all the time on signs…

I like using semicolons in my writing and whenever my dad reads it over, he always thinks they're wrong. He doesn't know how to use them.

Maybe slightly off topic but is there something in life that im missing? How on earth did Katie Perry and Justin Beiber both win MTV Music Awards and ITV win Channel of the Year?

Ive seen it a few times since and still i want to… sdhjifbvvb defhjvbnjvnjifv n!!!!!!!! It really bugs me that absolute guff is considered good enough to win anything and people strengthen the idea that any of it is good by slobbering over it daily. The idea that Katie Perry and Justin Beiber is good music is just wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. Just listen to it.

 

Aggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This reminds me of when I was watching this year's Grammys…. I remember thinking how much I disliked some of the nominees, and how I would much rather watch the unaired part where Paul got his Grammy for best solo rock vocal. 

Oh, and I think Justin Bieber in general is a pet peeve for me- especially when Youtube idiots say that the Beatles stole his haircut… and are dead serious. Ew.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Referring to the grammar comments above, there are some great comics here that explain how to avoid the most infuriating of grammatical/spelling errors.

(I couldn't agree more with what's been said. You'd think compulsory education was enough to stop these people!)

A little sanity in a world of reality 'stars' and everyone must care about celebrities and Katie Perry being loved for her musical talent. Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and any reality star who has no talent whatsoever but is plastered everywhere in the media will never get a Star on the Hollywood Walk according to the people who decide who does.

Very happily Kermit the Frog has one. Sad when a muppet has more talent than a lauded 'star'. Hail Kermit.

Oh why not…

I'm sorry if this has already been posted but I HATE people who can't stand 45 second without attention!
Like he hardcore ones who will jump into a conversation and then make it about themselves or scream at people to get their attention or just simply don't leave people alone.
