  1. As an English teacher, no single grammar mistake annoys me. We’re all human; we make mistakes. We type too quickly, we’re in a rush. Things happen. Our brains work as automatic spell-checkers as well, so if we’re not careful, our minds will correct things like their, there, they’re without us even realizing it.

    That all being said, the “mistake” that annoys me is a writer simply not paying attention. That is, when a sentence or paragraph is filled with so many mistakes that I can’t understand it. If you want someone to take the time to read something you wrote, take the time to write it properly, use correct spelling and punctuation, and don’t come across like someone who can’t write beyond a third grade level.

  2. Kinda common to reddit. MASSIVE BLOCKS OF TEXT. No punctuation, no capitalization (or even worse: random capitalization)

    They leave it up to you to decipher it. Gives me a headache every time.
