Humor Since I think we haven't been having enough fun lately on OSNews, I decided it's time we do something fun for a change. We all have our little pet annoyances when it comes to other people's comments. Fixed expressions or comment styles that annoy the living daylights out of you. Here are mine.

I should have added that we non native speakers obviously make more and bigger mistakes. They are just different ones. As an example, a Spaniard can easily say "Last night I dreamed with you" (it is how we say it in Spanish), while a native speaker would never make such mistake.

And yes, we also make many spelling mistakes in our own languages.

Actually, in Spain the amount of grammar and spelling errors is above some other spanish speaking countries I've lately been in; this came as a surprise to me when I first moved to Spain.

I believe this is a common trend in many countries but one could argue that it was in Spain where the spanish originated, so "they must know".
