Can you stop writing these things?
 
It's BRAKES, not "breaks"
It's PEDAL, not "peddle"
It's LOSE, not "loose", as in "I am trying to lose weight"

These annoy me.

Thank you

The lose peddles on my bike make me greatful four my breaks.

It's tire, not tyre.

Color not colour.

Keep right except to pass.

you may be on the wrong forum

Stop writing?? I was under the impression that writing by hand fell out of fashion long ago, replaced by keystrokes, finger taps, and voice recognition software.

See the problem is that in places like Canada, we do keep right and keep our tires on the pavement, but we like bright colours.

By the pedway with your pet?

Wouldn't "Bycicle" be a better spelling?

And saddle should not be spelled seat.

Except when it's spelled asshatchet.

I've become jaded. I'll let almost anything pass except a dominate mail who wants me to bare with him.

NOS88 04-07-14 03:36 PM

To the OP, I'm guessing the answer is "no". People will continue to be less than perfect.

Sorry - but that deserves a "you are clever" attaboy!

ahsposo 04-07-14 04:34 PM

what about people that type without punctuation or respect for case

I worked on a brown coloured Raleigh Twenty today, it was nice that someone had already replaced the tyres and the stoppers on the bicycle needed a little adjustment, not that the rear stopper will ever be more than a speed attenuator.

Why would you try to learn something in school when you can go on welfare or work in McDonalds, play with your iphone, and think about overpaid people playing basketball?

I am guessing a general comment on youth or society? Not directed at anyone here I am sure. :)

RoadTire 04-07-14 09:26 PM

And it's "hello,' not "wa's up." "'y'all" is just fine tho.

Depends what country your in but since this is an american based forum I conform for you guys and gals.

RoadTire 04-08-14 03:04 AM

I'm going to call this posts good, reliable, and valid because:

These are gross misspellings: Cyclosaurus; It's BRAKES, not "breaks" It's PEDAL, not "peddle" It's LOSE, not "loose", as in "I am trying to lose weight"

Reading this make me want to talk funny and drive on the wrong side of the road: ahsposo; It's tire, not tyre. Color not colour. Keep right except to pass.

Spell checker's need to be updated: Artkansas; And saddle should not be spelled seat.
ahsposo; Except when it's spelled asshatchet.

And because this is required in every thread: NOS88; wtf?

Can you imagine RoadTyre? Make me sound English. Like Hollingsworth. What's up with that, anyway?
