More Facebook laughs

We all have seen and read the comments on Facebook (and other sites) that by no means would make the grade on an English exam. Some of them are so common I'm beginning to wonder if I'm wrong and they are right?! The ones such as "I need to sale this item quick" or "House for sell, 2 bedroom, cheap" and the list goes on and one. The one that caught my eye yesterday was a female trying to find a new home for her 4 year old dog. It read, "Four year old dog needs new home. We are moving and no dogs aloud." Maybe they will let her keep the dog if it is a quite one....LOL Photo: pixabay.com/en/smiley-laugh-funny-emoticon-1175520/

She can try to find the "teenager soundproof cage" for her dog and keep the poor animal.

Some of the posts I read on Facebook make me shake my head in wonder. You hope the person who posted didn't bother to proof what they posted, and that they don't really believe they are using the right word.

The same 'group' of people seem to post the same thing over and over and they have even been 'told' that they need to fix their grammar! They didn't like it too much.

@AbbyGreenhill I've found that people who post on-line not only prefer to remain ignorant but are proud of it for some bizarre reason. They get quite upset when you suggest they save themselves from embarrassment by correcting their wording.

@DWDavis I only correct my husband! As a teacher this should drive you nuts.

@Jessicalynnt I think this one is a little too old for that - unless she stayed back a lot of years!

LOL, I know what you mean and have seen those mistakes. One thing that bothers me a lot is when people misuse "there" and "their". Also another thing that I notice is people who misuse "to", "too" and "two".

I hear you! The two's are a little more complicated but I guess to some lots of stuff is complicated.

With auto-correct, it's hard to tell sometimes. Either way, spelling and grammar have definitely deteriorated lately!

I always wanted to "edit" such posts but I could not do it lest I'll get a lot of flak from bashers! Just ignore it.

You can't say anything to them you're right, they call people all kinds of names for doing that.

It drives me nuts. English was not my first language yet I learned it. Automatic spell check should pick up many of the errors I see on Facebook. Then again, spell check creates many.

I hate to say it, but I just don't think they really know the difference between allowed and aloud. Tennessee isn't the brightest state in the union or so they say. I am a transplant so I can say that.

@AbbyGreenhill There are landlords or landladies that absolutely not allow pets in their building whether the pet is quiet or not.
