Shhh! Your bad spelling and grammar hurts my head.

I’ve noticed lately that people seem to have a hard time spelling a word that means:  the absence of noise or bustle.  Instead of them spelling this word they write the word that means: to the utmost or most absolute extent or degree.

Why can’t anyone spell quiet?

Quiet means: The absence of noise or bustle.

Quite means: To the utmost or most absolute extent or degree

Spell check will not help you with this one.  You actually have to reread your work and know the difference between the two.  Here is an example to better illustrate my point.

Don’t keep quiet if you don’t know what the fuck you’re writing; Ask someone, or you will look like quite the asshole!
