What’s Something Really Small That Drives You Absolutely Crazy?
You know how people always say, "don't sweat the small stuff?" Well, we're doing the exact opposite of that!
I think we can all admit that sometimes the tiniest annoyance can end up driving you absolutely insane. There are a lot of little things that get under my skin, but the worst has to be simple grammatical errors. When people mix up "your" and "you're," it takes every ounce of strength I have to not correct them (I don't want to be that guy). And, don't even get me started on the mixing up of "too" and "to" or "their," "there," and "they're." These small mistakes irritate me WAY more than they should, especially when I catch myself making them!
