Obsessions and Interests
If you're on the Autism spectrum, there's a good chance you have an obsession or special interest. Use this forum to talk about it with others.
And it's made worse by the fact that is going unchallenged. I wonder why companies like Sky Sports and the radio station talkSPORT are either unaware or simply do not care.
I wonder what is being taught in our schools and where this has fallen down. Children copy adults and so maybe this is where the fault lies. They think it is correct to use OF instead of HAVE and THEM instead of THOSE.
You see it on forums too and it drives me insane. I am tempted to be pedantic and quote but I resist.
I tweeted TALKSPORT earlier about guest Dean Saunders who was talking about Manchester United, saying that they had "done well in THEM games"
"I should OF done that" instead of "I should HAVE done that" is another mystery and irritant.
I wonder WHEN this laziness and illiteracy first crept in.
Sorry, but there really is no cause for such inept...
