Next time someone utters the phrase ‘should of’ I’m going to scream.

I’m a stickler for good grammar. I once dumped a guy because he struggled to compose a text with the proper construction of ‘its’ and ‘it’s’ and the next time someone utters the phrase ‘should of’ I’m going to scream.

So upon finding a book of 100 quiz questions that would tell me how good my grammar actually is (obv perfect), I squealed. But the questions were hard. And as it turns out, my grammar isn’t actually that great. And yours probably isn’t either.

Let me ask you this: is the proper usage ‘different to’, ‘different from’ or ‘different than’? Hmmm, not feeling so smug now, are ya?
