• Not anymore. It bothers me when my phone keys than instead of then and vice versa. It bothers me when it doesn't capitalize the first letter in the sentence but then randomly capitalizes other words for no apparent reason, when it makes fun of how I talk and shuts off 50 times when I'm trying to key an answer. And I'm almost to the point where I don't even care enough to go back and fix
  • I have that problem with my phone too. What bothers me the most is when trying to answer a call and just can't get it done. Makes me want to go back to the old phone without touch screen.

      Yes, when I'm using my phone it takes about three rings before it'll give me the option to answer the incoming call. But they can always leave a message so I'm not too worried about it it's also bothersome I say one thing and it keys something entirely different sometimes it's a little funny and entertaining even.

      Sounds possessed. . . . . by you. Lol
    • Rick Myres
      I hope you know I was kidding with you.
    • Linda Joy
      I'll take responsibility when it's the way I pronounce it that causes the mistake but sometimes it's just crazy and what I said didn't sound anything like what was keyed! Lol

      Keep in mind I don't get notified when you make comments on an answer other than mine. This is a comment on your answer remember?
    • Rick Myres
      Oh I remember its my question, but I did know you do not get notices. Back when I said I was not getting them it they started up for me.
  • Yes, mainly because they don't also use "ten" instead of "tan" and I don't understand the logic behind that. I can understand the confusion if it's someone from Norfolk because there the local accent makes "than" sound like "then". However, that accent also makes "tan" sound like "ten". So, why do people confuse one pair of words and not another pair of words that rhyme exactly with the first pair of words?
  • I am not a grammar nazi so a mistake now and then is forgivable. Someone writing "orgasm" instead of "organism" is a different matter though. It's the bane of biology teachers.
  • It bothers me every time someone is too lazy to use the correct word.
  • Why should I be bothered? That's their problem, not mine. I am too concerned with intensifying my writing, than to go around and correct others.
  • Yes and no. It depends. It is possible that someone simply misspells it when typing in a rush. But it is a bit annoying when someone does that consistently not knowing or realizing the difference. Of course, English is not the native language of hundreds of millions of people around the world who actually use it every day maybe. So no wonder why we have more of these "typos".
  • Every now and than.
  • not really, i dont care what they use
