    Grammar Nazi Here....

    A couple of terms you might want to familiarize yourself with before posting.

    1. Loose- "My vehicle gets loose in turns." CORRECT!!!! "I'm loosing power in turns."WRONG! "I'm losing power in turns." CORRECT!!!! My engine is loosing coolant." WRONG! "My vehicle is losing coolant." CORRECT!!!!

    2. Peeling- "My paint is peeling. " CORRECT!!!! "My paint is pealing." WRONG!!! (Unless your paint is ringing like a bell).

    Feel free to add your own pet peeves.

    I am in basic agreement, but I also know that my IPhone and IPad change what I write at times into something I didn't intend.

    A recent one was last hurray, vs. last hurrah.

    "Epic fail" - way overused. An epic fail is the Edsel where people still talk about it over 50 years later. The current Malibu redesign, for example, is not an epic fail - it will not be remembered 50 years from now.

    Oh, also, I certainly could care less that the correct expression is "I couldn't care less." But, alas, I don't.

    So irregardlesslyness is out?

    or should that be spelled irregardlessliness?

    I found 6 Googles for irregardlessliness and 109 for irregardlesslyness...

    "Could of" instead of "could've" or "could have." "Could of" makes no sense! Drives me CRAZY! That one and "could care less" when it should be "couldn't care less" are my biggest peeves. Think about it, people. If you could care less, that means, to some extent, you DO care!

    Rather then being critical of others, go with the flow, than it may not bother you so much!

    You beat me to it!
