Even though you don't consider yourself a grammar nazi,you can't help but have at least one minor grammar mistake that you could care less about, amirite?

@shelbme ...are you doing it on purpose?

Yes and no.I'm aware that I do it in general but it's an unconscious thing during typing because it's something that I don't care about enough to make sure I put the space in there.Unless I'm writing anything formal,I usually only use a space after a question mark or exclamation mark,both for aesthetic reasons and out of courtesy to the people reading it.Not using it after full stops or commas doesn't look as ugly or make the text harder to read in the same way.At least it doesn't for me.Maybe it sticks out like a sore thumb to others, interrupting the flow of their reading.

That last sentence reminded me of a third instance that I use the space.When the word after the comma takes the word before it onto the next line with it which leaves too much of a space at the end of the line before it.

If it bothers enough people on this site,I'll make more of an effort to put the space while I'm on here.

Thought I was the only one! Gosh, that is irritating. It just looks so wrong without the space.

I see what you did there.

Ohh wait,don't hit you? Were you correcting my mistake? It wasn't a mistake.It was intentional.I was pointing out the exact same thing you were in your post.I can't help but care enough about that particular grammatical error that I could care less about it.

I pay more attention to words
than the structure/grammar
as you can see from the way I set up my comments wary smilie

Not to worry.It's easy to overlook things like that when you're scrolling through posts.

Very true.That's the reason I ended up leaving it out.I usually use one when I end a question with the word 'huh' but I refrained because of the presence of the first one.

hey
does that mean amirite? in a post
shouldn't have a comma before it
but a period since it can be a sentence on it's own?
Am I right?

Good point.That's the least of the problems a grammar nazi would have with the use of that word though.

oh I think I can explain that

because the site is called amirite
it's easier to accept

on that post
if you scroll down to the second comment by Mike
he explains things in a way that I think relates to this

Yeah I know it's not technically grammatically incorrect but grammar nazis tend to cringe at unofficial 'trendy' words for lack of a better term.

Mikes post fit really well with this though.I completely agree.But if you try explaining that to a grammar nazi,stand back.

Ahh,you have the same pet peeve huh? I find that one so annoying.

By the way,it's amazing how self-conscious you get about your grammar and punctuation while you're criticising it.I spent a good 30 seconds deciding whether to put a comma after 'peeve'.Lynne Truss,where are you when I need you?
