There are grammatical errors that really bother me alot. Oops, I mean a lot. Yes, that's right... a lot is two words.
I try not to be a grammar snob. Really, I do. But despite my best efforts, I have grammar pet peeves. Its true. Yikes, I mean it's true.
Sometimes its (I mean it's) difficult to turn off you're internal proof-reader (uh oh... I mean your internal proof-reader) when your reading other people's writing. Drat, that should be... when you're reading other people's writing.
Of course, it does make a difference who's writing (I mean whose writing) your (oops... I mean you're) reading. If its a young person (oops, that should be it's) whose (I mean who's) doing the writing, sometimes you need to cut them a little slack. But there are times when even experienced writers make mistakes, even myself. Oh wait... that should be me.
So if your (you're) writing a letter or a paper, be sure you take the time to do alot (a lot) of proofreading, so that you find those common mistakes that are easy to fix. Its (It's) a little thing that can make alot (a lot) of difference in the long run. You never know who's (whose) eyes might be on you're (your) writing, and you want to make a good impression. Take it from myself (me).
