Today, I was chatting to a co-worker, upon whom I have a serious crush. It was going really well, until he said "irregardless", as if it's actually a proper word. This grammatical abomination really ticks me off, and I actually had to fight back the urge to beat some damn sense into him. FML

You're not exactly an English major either, op. "upon whom I have a serious crush"- Although "whom" is used correctly here, we rarely say we have a crush "upon" someone.

Everyone loves a grammar nazi! Maybe if you correct him, he'll think you're amazing or something, idk, boys are dumb

WOAH! WOAH! WOAH! WOAH! WOAH! WOAH! this is not my batman mug.
Sorry switched topics- why are you claiming that ALL boys are dumb? A rotten apple shouldn't spoil the whole bunch.

I'm not a boy or anything, but I would be taken aback my shock if someone was seriously angry at me for saying a word incorrectly. I would actually be a little upset that they would point it out. It shows you weren't listening to me, you were looking for mistakes in my words. To each their own, I suppose.

I hate grammar Nazi's. It's like has taken a stand against the once awesome internet slang. Gone are the days where 'i culd type lyk this', in which everyone could still understand, and it wouldn't lead to a 30 comment long discussion about whether I used 'I' in the correct context.
Fuck me.
And to read that there are people who feel the compulsion for grammatical correction in day to day conversation is just scary and somewhat disappointing.

I apologise for any grammatical errors I made throughout this message and I'm certain Grammar_Nazi is already working on his corrections.
Have a good day.

Ummm no! Yes I think the co worker felt like way overreacting but it's not an FML for him because she didn't actually do anything and as far as I can tell didn't say anything to him either.

If I miss use a word correct me but don't flip out, unless I'm like some of FML's commenters who say "Oh my gosh your sucg an stupid idiot" if I say/type a comment or word that horrible and abominable then by all means tear me a new one. Till that occurs alert me then continue you on.

Since when was txt type 'cool'? It makes you look dumb/lazy. The worst excuse in my opinion is when people say 'dis isnt english clas!' We have that to prevent these sort of things. And when someone corrects someone's grammar while they are speaking, that does not mean they are not listening. They just so happened to point out you made a mistake and make sure you don't say it again less you want to look foolish.


Accidentally hit send and the app crashed... Anyways, by putting 'ir-' in front if it, that has it mean 'not regardless' so thus worth regard. It's like a double negative. Either way, OP's crush probably used it in place of regardless, and thus used it wrong.

Your comment reminded me of something my coworker used to say. I had to thaw chicken one night and she told me to "dethaw" it. It was more than once, too. I didn't have the heart to correct her.
