Facebook is NOT your friend!

I'm such a stickler for correct spelling, grammar and usage of the like. Every now and then, when stalking my fellow Facebookers, I come across status updates that are so CLEARLY wrong, it takes every bone in my body not to post a "correction comment".

Mind you, I most definitely make up words, like adding an extra "-est" as in...sexierest. That's me. But I am NOT down with (O.P.P.) the interchanging and misusage of there/their/they're or were/where/we're and so on.... Here's an actual status update that I'm just itching to correct, but I won't on Facecrack... but I will on here!!!!!

*The Facebook user name has not been posted out respect for the person... but mainly because the person is crazy and who knows what'll happen. Not really.

"So and So Seriously needs more patients. I can't do this all my own"

Really? You need more patients? What are you going to do with them? Are the patients going to help you? Because if they're sick, I don't think they'll be much help. And I'm pretty sure you didn't go to school for anything that's remotely related to being able to tend to someone medically. I'm not a dumb-ass. I know the individual meant "patience". But I know what to get 'em for Christmas... a Rodger's Thesaurus Dictionary. The dictionary for obvious reasons...the thesaurus mainly for fun.

Well... I gotta get ready for work. Lame.

I think it's genetic because I have the same affliction. The whole your/you're and there/ they're/their thing drives me mental!
