Do you have a pet peeve? My pet peeve is when people who speak English as their first language build websites and never check them for misused or misspelled words. The word "there" is used where the word "their" should be and the word "than" is used in place of the word "then".Or vice versa. On top of this there are always so many misspelled words that I never finish reading what is on the site. What is your biggest pet peeve.

Hi, Yes, I do have a pet peeve. I do not like to see other people pick their nose in front of me. I think using a kleenex or going to the bathroom to pick their nose would be much more polite.

I totally agree with this one, also.

Oh, yes! I couldn't agree with you more. And how about blowing your nose in a restaurant? Now that is so inconsiderate to others.

*applauds* Definitely!! I hate it when people use "you're" and "your" incorrectly. It's like nails on a chalkboard to me.

Yes, it sure is and you see more of this every day. It's as if our schools have failed to teach anyone the proper use of words.
