Especially if it's your boss who put the thing up. As it probably would be.

I knew enough to get me around on my own. We had to pass a basic class to be able to get off post. I had some 'private' lessons from a few fräulein's too.

That one is the least offensible to me. Somehow 've in should've, could've, would've spun off to become "of." For whatever reason people forgot they are saying a contraction, and to started to believe they are using two words e.g. "should ... of" instead of "should've." It's like an un-contraction, and I personally find that amusing.

In general, I don't worry much about people's errors, but the "have" into "of" mistake is a little annoying. The problem is that it exposes a lack of awareness about how the language is built up, specifically that there is a connection, in tense and structure, between "They have gone" and "They could've gone."

Something that I of noticed as well is that some people are too quick to use the word "literally" to make a story sound more dramatic. Either they use it completely incorrectly, as in, "I was literally starving" or they use it when it is literally unnecessary.

Just **** that I see in my job that involves a lot of blogging, emails, policy, copy, and local journalism.

1. Capitalizing terms that they think are important. That **** is a salesman's smile. I'm trying to trick everyone here and that nonsense shuts people off. It draws attention, but it also detracts from the very important detail.
2. O....h my go,d the f,uck,ing,,,commas. I almost wish that commas didn't exist.
3. "May" for easy compliance instead of using straightforward language. I edit that **** out.
4. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No. Bad writing. Stop.

5. Senile mother****ers writing legal material that we have to spend 1-2 hours of discussion per section to understand. At least it's usually good legal advice though, they just know **** all about writing (or talking) in any way that's communicable.

6. Double spaces.
