This one really irritates me too! Nobody has managed to convince me that it's worth persevering with predictive text and the elevated blood pressure that always results. My response is to write text messages (note: not texts) in full, with proper punctuation. Bah!!!

Oh, another pet hate: The use of the word "totally" in every part of a sentence other than where it should have been.
What about "totality", which has crept into widespread and improper use?

I used to be quite good with technology, but now I can't be bothered. In my world we say "can't be arrsed" - see www.arrse.co.uk . If you are not easily offended you might like some of the funny stories in the NAAFI Bar forum thread.

I've never sent or read a text in my life, nor watched East Enders, nor played the Lottery....

I think predictive text might be good though as my daughter tells me it relies on correct spelling rather than text tosh. This must work as she sends loads of texts and I can still understand most of what she says to me.

and a subconscious or an unconscious thought - these are miles apart but unconscious gets used all the time.

People who write "loose" when they mean "lose".

People who write "could of" because they don't realise they say "could've".

That's all for now.

People who say those ones instead of those, and say lend when they mean borrow. Apprentices who ask loudly "why have we got all these bits left over?", or "aren't we going to powerflush this one?". Ever wandered how Bazil Faulty felt with Manuel?

Newsreaders who can't pronounce that word so the whole world now pronounces it wrongly. Trouble is I can't remember the word, my dad used to moan about it all the time before his Altysheimers set in, unfortunately mine has set in so I'll never remember what word it is that annoys me so much, until the nurse asks me which bus I came on to the day centre and that word will flash into my mind but I won't have a clue what bus I came on.

Can someone remind me was I once into valves or something?

Actually I've just remembered I'm menat to be in Eggborough, sh1t, better flye.
