What spelling mistakes irritate you the most? (For me, it is when people mistake the words ... their, they're or there). What about you?

    1) You're and your.

    -Your (you're) so nice . It's you're (your) stuff.

    2) Its and it's.

    - its (it's) nice to have you here. The computer and it's (its) parts are broken.

    3) Bear with me.

    - Bare with me.

    I feel one should take care of punctuation while writing anything else matter will appear irritable.

    Yes. That one bothers me a great deal. But I think the worst one is when people ask “how can I loose weight? Not knowing the difference between “loose” and “lose” is really irritating.
