I know we all have our spelling and grammar pet peeves, and let's face it - we also all make mistakes, whether they be typos, spelling errors, grammatical errors, phone autocorrect...whatever. And sometimes we just let it go because we just don't care to fix it. I'm not judging - As much of a grammar stickler as I am, I do it too. Here are some of my pet peeves:
The obvious -
You're / your
It's / its
They're / their / there
To / too (I'm scared if people put "two" in place of either of the others)
Then / than (this is the one that bugs me the most)
Less obvious, but still annoys me:
Of / have ("I could of..." - no. It's "I could have..."
Saying "as him" or "as me" etc. in cases where it would read "as he is" or "as you are" fully expressed, etc.
Annoys me, but I do it sometimes anyway because it sounds goofy otherwise -
Ending a sentence with a preposition
Saying I like something "better" instead of "more"
Punctuation - too many ellipses (...) and parentheses (word hugs), and commas sometimes
What are your favorite (or least favorite, as the case may be) errors?
