Grammar Nazi Vent: Could Have. Not Could Of. Could Have.
"He could HAVE done that".

Not "He could OF done that."

"I would HAVE told you."

Not "I would OF told you."

I apologize for this outburst. I couldn't contain it any longer.

2. could've would've and should've are all proper conjunctions right?
I think people just get confused when they type those words out.

I tolerate poor grammar pretty well, but this one really gets me.

13. Here are a couple I don't like........
Unacceptable: "I done it now."

Acceptable: "I done did it now." Or, "I done went and did it now."


Unacceptable: "Look at them cows."

Acceptable: "Look at them there cows."

Also, I hate when people mispronounciate common English words.
