We all make grammar mistakes from time to time. Usually it’s because you’re in a rush, writing informally or simply not devoting your full attention to the task at hand.

This infographic looks at 15 bone-headed stuff-ups that will cause anyone reading to seriously question your intelligence.
The infographic below comes from the content marketing site copyblogger. It breaks down the most egregious grammar goofs that people make time and time again. As the website explains:

If you’re not the world’s best speller, it might be worth printing this cheat sheet out and keeping it close to hand. The recipients of your emails will think a lot higher of you.
