Ok, we all have them, things that make us cringe, shake our heads, or just really tick us off. What are your pet peeves?
One of my all time pet peeves is when people spell the words "a lot" wrong. I guess I should explain, although explanations are not necessary in this thread.
I picked this peeve up from my Journalism teacher, it just drove her crazy and since we heard about it all the time, it really sticks out like a sore thumb to me.
Incorrect spellings of "a lot":
Allot- which means to distribute, or to assign a share or portion.
Alot- there is no such word.
