"Um, I didn't know anyone WROTE it that way. Since they're saying "Should've" (which now that I think about it isn't written down very often) it *sounds* like "should of". But I guess I always thought people knew what it was. Apparently not."

Wow. I'm honestly surprised you've never noticed this before. There are certain forumers who are guilty of doing this quite a bit, actually. Not to mention, but if you have a "cyber life" anywhere outside of SLS (like facebook) then I can't imagine that you've never seen it before. I'm gonna guess that you have, but just never noticed it because it's something that reads the same way it sounds out loud.

I see it all the time on facebook and in the forums...though I don't see it as often in the forums since I stopped posting in the political threads. Still, it drives me up a wall when I do see it.

"I'm guilty of coulda, shoulda, woulda"

This is basically slang and it's no different than saying (or writing) something like "I'm gonna do this." or "I've gotta do that." which is totally different than writing "should of" in place of "should have." When someone actually writes/types out "should of" it indicates that they actually think that's how it's said out loud.

I don't fault anyone for writing in slang, as long as they actually get it right. BTW...."woulda, shoulda, coulda" would not get you mocked by me. I try not to make slang a regular part of my writing, but I still do it from time to time. Either because I'm being lazy or because it might better emphasize the "tone" of a particular comment or point I'm trying to make. A few slang words here and there would probably tend to make my comments seem a little less serious.

I'll even write "shoulda" sometimes. But it's like "ain't" - I'll use it for *effect*, when appropriate, but I know it ain't a word.

p.s. someone brought Cheetos to the part Saturday. No lie.

"I should of gone to that party."

Um, I didn't know anyone WROTE it that way. Since they're saying "Should've" (which now that I think about it isn't written down very often) it *sounds* like "should of". But I guess I always thought people knew what it was. Apparently not.

I suppose if you slow down as you go by, they could open the door and drop and roll

if I'm writing very informally, there's several things I type more the way they sound when I say it informally, rather than the way they're truly spelled or when I have to speak more properly.

cpl, that is really common in my area, unfortunately.

Another local phrase here is that people say they will "go by" a destination instead of "visit" or "stop in". To me, as a non-native to the area, go by means you'll be passing without stopping.

PP: People who use "of" instead of "have."

Example: "I should of gone to that party."

I just read a profile that must have made this mistake at least 10 times.

Jack was AWESOME! "wait til they get a load of ME!"

Out of no more than mere curiosity: why is Affleck a "douche" in your opinion, T? I'm not trying to stir the pot, I really thought he was almost universally thought of as a "nice guy", so "douche" surprised me.
