> Things annoy me too about how other people express themselves - here I am
mostly talking FB.
I am lucky in that most of my friends on FB speak or at least type, better
than I do.
Errors in ads and on TV make me squirm. When a yoga teach on YouTube says,
"Lay down on your mat," (and so many do), I squirm as I lie down. They also
say vertebra when they mean vertebrae. Whimper. ...And I have a particular
hate for the confusion of "less" and "fewer".
So why does this bother me? I have trained myself to be sensitive to words.
And then I make typos and errors all the time, and make myself squirm and
In the grand scheme of things, I try not to let it get to me.
