I kept telling myself that I didn't really mind if someone were to use the wrong "there" in a text, in a email, or on facebook because who really cares, it's not like they're writing a research paper that is going to be graded. I mean I see these mistakes all the time, but I never used to really mind it until I started this class.
I have been noticing a lot more grammar mistakes on my phone and facebook lately. For instance, today I received a text that said, "Your a freak." I was not only frustrated because my friend called me a freak for no reason, but come on, at least use correct grammar if you're going to make fun of me!
A grammar error that I am now constantly correcting for myself is "were" and we're." When I used to text, I would always say "were," but meaning "we're." Don't get me wrong I knew the difference; it was just that I was too lazy to put the apostrophe in. Wow, I know that sounds horrible! Now, I make sure that these little words are correct. This class has already changed me so much.
