You Scored an A

You got 10/10 questions correct.

It's pretty obvious that you don't make basic grammatical errors.
If anything, you're annoyed when people make simple mistakes on their blogs.
As far as people with bad grammar go, you know they're only human.
And it's humanity and its current condition that truly disturb you sometimes.

It's and they're are easy if you test whether "it is" or "they are" will work in the same sentence. And I do make a lot of grammatical mistakes, but mostly because I'm a lazy proofreader.

    I cringe every time I go back and read something I wrote and see the mistakes. It doesn't bother me so much to see it in the writing of others, unless it's continuous. But I do it all the time, know better, and hate it when they pop up.

    Here's a funny one for you that I do from time to time. Many people make the mistake of using the word "there" when they meant "their". It's one of the most common mistakes I see. But it's rare when someone does the reverse - "their" when they meant to say "there". "I went over their".

    I do. And it kills me when I catch it later.
