YES, oh my gosh me too! I hate when people get their homophones mixed up! Also, when people use "of" instead of "have" (should have, would have, etc.).

Yes!  This drives me absolutely insane!  People are so quick to thrash words into their iPhones without even thinking and then posting/sending without using their brains!  The other day my 33 year old sister wrote me a message on Facebook that said "your nuts"....  What about my nuts?  Oh you mean YOU'RE nuts!  ahdn_paul_01  Seriously.  That was also after she deleted and blocked me then got her boyfriend to do the same, so that shows how mature she is.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11

A job posting on craigslist I saw recently looking for scriptwriters for the film industry asked applicants to include a "summery" of their work experience.

It's shocking the amount of spelling mistakes you can find on ''official'' or ''professional'' websites if you look hard enough. I was on the website for the Royal Navy recently, and I found heaps and heaps of mistakes.

EDIT: Just realised that you can't say heaps of mistakes because a mistake is abstract. Oh god, I'm at it too! You'll understand what I mean though.

Speaking of grammar, one pet peeve I have is when people spell it "grammer".

I can't stand it when people make sounds when they're eating. For God sake, JUST CHEW THE FRIGGIN FOOD AND SWALLOW IT.

Or when they're biting nails or picking their nose. I think that's disgusting.

How about when they're making sounds eating AND talking at the same time -- even worse.

Sorry to hear that Linde

Back to a Beatles pet peeve -- to me the most common, and the one that bothers me most, is when people think Paul was just a vocal softy, singing love songs and bubbly pop songs, and even when you back them into a corner with proof of his undeniable rock & roll voice -- Why Don't We Do It In The Road, Helter Skelter, Oh Darling, just to name a few), clearly a match for the best of them (Robert Plant, Roger Daltry, Mick Jagger, etc.), they still hem and haw.  Curses on them!paul-mccartney

Oh, right, I forgot to mention that I agree with you, Funny Paper.

These fancy functions like the Edit here require some speed I guess, so if a connection is slow, or sometimes slows down, it may be unable to do them.  It also will make a post never really publish -- which is why a few of my posts in the past never made it, even though I hit "Submit Reply".

That really gets in my nerves too. My mom refuses to listen to any of Paul's post-Beatle music 'cause she says it's all ballad-y stuff (which is kinda true, the majority is) but she always says ''I like John and George because they didn't do ''soft'' music, I don't like ''soft'' music. And I'm like aaaahhh! ''Why Don't We Do It In The Road'' sound familiar? What about ''She's A Woman''? ''HELTER SKELTER!??

People saying The Beatles weren't political

When Paul makes a political statement like endorsing Obama, people tell him to stay out of politics, particularly older people. You don't have to agree with his politics, but in my opinion its kind of stupid tell him to keep out of politics. I mean do they not listen Beatles songs or what they said in the 60s or were they (the people) too messed up on drugs? I bring this up because The Fest for Beatles Fans posted this picture (below) & said: THIS! #peace #love #equality #BeatlesFans. In case you do not know, the red background and the pink equal signs is to support marriage equality here in the states. During the week people were changing their facebook pictures to a picture with a red background and pink equal signs. Some people on the Fest For Beatles Fans facebook were up in arms about the group posting this and saying The Beatles were not political and keep The Beatles out of politics.

The people who got offended at that must be stupid, The Beatles were all about peace and love, which is really what all this is about, that, and Equality. 

 

The whole anti gay people/ gay marriage deal is kind of a pet peeve of mine. My friend's sister is gay, and since her parents are such "religious" people they won't even talk to her. How could anybody raise a kid, and then not talk to them just because of their sexual orientation? Then, they pretend to be good religious people. They're not good people, you don't do that to your own child for something so petty, that's disgusting. You don't agree with that lifestyle, whatever, but to shun these people is completely different. I don't eat meat, I find the thought od it repulsive, but I don't look down upon those who do eat meat, it's their life, so why should I care.
