Top Ten Most Annoying Grammar MistakesPositronWildhawk You'd think that people of the level of education that we have, with proof-read and grammatically refined writings being around every last child in the education system, respectable grammar would be a sixth sense to society as a whole. But no. Twelve years after high school, and people continue to misplace apostrophes and use similar sounding words with entirely different spellings interchangeably. May this list be a guide to these ill-taught and often ignorant individuals, who won't care, or even notice, if I end this sentence with an invalid conjunction then.

Honestly, the top three items on this list are not usually made once you get to sixth grade. (Luckily, people in my area are relatively smart.) Lots of my classmates, however, make this mistake.
