It's and its

using apostrophes on plurals "I am going to have bagel's"

Using txt speak ("r u going 2nite?") in online forums and other places where there is no limit on number of characters in a message.
Ciel - you took mine! This is my biggest pet peeve. On Facebook - someone I went to high school with does this all the time and it makes him look soooo unintelligent!

rode - road He said "I road my bike today." Really???
accept - except
your - you're
through - threw
are - our
very - vary

These are some that I have noticed he does and that I have seen on here occasionally.

And text speak - hate it! I told my 11 year old daughter that I better not catch her doing this. If she sends me a text that has u, r, btw - I make her resend it written correctly.
