There are a few things that bother me about the blogosphere. Most of them, just like minor irritants in real life, I am able to laugh at, brush aside and move on with my day.
But there's one thing that I just absolutely can't stand. It offends me every time I see it, and I just have to express myself about this issue or I may very well explode.
It's COULD HAVE, people. Not COULD OF. If you have to write it like you pronounce it, then for god's sake use COULD'VE. (Or should've or might've or would've...)
Are you listening Fred? All you anonymi at The Herald? Could have. Learn to love it. Learn to use it. Any questions???
