  1. When people use *myself* or *yourself* as an object.

    Example: “Please reach out to Bob or myself if you have any questions.” uuuugh

    I think we were taught to never refer to ourselves as “me” in school. And that couldn’t be less true.

  2. All of them, but especially not knowing the proper use of “you’re” vs “your,” “too” vs “to” vs “two,” we’re” vs “were,” and so on. Oh, and “should of.” It’s “should’ve,” a contraction of “should have.”

  3. Unnecessary commas (or commas that should have been a parenthetical phrase) like the ones in your title.

    Additionally, mistakes of number (i.e. “mistakes piss you off” or “mistake pisses you off” vs “mistakes pisses you off” like the one in your title.

    I’m almost convinced that you have done this on purpose to troll us.

  4. When people use “that” instead of “who.” For instance:

    The person *that* told me to post on Reddit. <—incorrect

    The person *who* told me to post on Reddit. <—correct because the writer is referring to a person, not an object

  5. I simply _despise_ when people phrase a question as, “How to vacuum a squirrel?”, instead of, “How do I vacuum a squirrel?”. I don’t even know why. It’s an instinctual prejudice, I don’t have a good reason for it. But, goddamn, does it make me rage inside.
