I was not aware using a contraction appropriately is lazy. I guess we should all stop using them if we do not want Frownland to think we are lazy speakers.

In order for your argument to be valid you would have to show how that kind of speech is lazy. So far you are failing miserably.

Well now you know, glad to help.

Another, one is the, use of commas, when,ever someone takes a moment, to think about, what they're, going to type.

It's not even pronounced the same way, dumbass.


i deal with a lot people who are unaware of the difference between reply and reply all when writing emails. definitely my biggest pet peeve at work.

ooo and another contender would be those who think it’s a good idea to use comic sans font and pink lettering in their emails. how the **** do you convince yourself that’s a good idea?

It's baffling to me that this applies to more than just a handful of soon-to-be retirees.

it's awful. to make matters worse the company i work for regularly sends out emails welcoming the newest employees, so at least two or three times a month i get flooded with "welcome aboard!" emails or my personal favourite, memes like the following:
