Words are difficult.

I know the English language is hard, but there are mistakes that are made, which just should not be made.  Simple things that really don’t take a whole lot of brain usage, so honestly  you won’t hurt yourself by using them properly.  Nerds like words, and we have a really hard time when people use them the wrong way, so here’s a handy list of the way you should and should not use words.

1.  Irregardless.  Nope, don’t do it. Regardless of whether you think it’s actually valid or not, just don’t.

2.  Supposebly.  Nope. Just NO. There is no B in Supposedly. Please, please just don’t.

3.  I could care less.  Just think about this phrase for a second, listen to it in your mind, let it swirl around in there.  Does it sound right?  I mean, if you could care less, then you would care less right?  So when you’re saying it, does it work?  Nope.  I couldn’t care less, if you could care less.

4.  You’re vs Your. Guys, this one is so easy.  If you just put your mind to it, you’ll see how easy it is!  You’re= you are. Your is yours.  Please word responsibly.

5.  I seen that. Please no.  Just don’t. You can see that, or you can say I saw that, but no one ever seen anything. Ever.

I have to go pick up kiddos now, but I have plenty of this to make a part 2 tomorrow!
