one of my pet peeves. people who say they no nothing about a subject and want to learn, but then want to question someone that is knowledgeable on that subject as if they didn't know what they were talking about.

Not contradicting you but something similar. When the person who knows alot about the subject gets pissy at the guy who knows nothing because the experienced guy skimmed a simple procedure. To him it may be simple but to the new guy it may be complicated.

at my age, i tend to have less tolerance for those who don't pay attention or act like idiots with a learning disability.

what are they teaching youngster in school these days? sometimes i think they are skipping over reading and comprehension of the English language.

and with some and the texting, speaking english must also be difficult.

I graduated from high school in 2010 and the English classes were quite comprehensive. However the overarching problem I noticed was teachers would never correct the gangster thugs who spek likea dis yo, because it was construed as racist. I don't see why but that's how it was. We now live in a country that's hypersensitive to race. I don't give damn what color you are but if you can't form a coherent sentence or prove you can spell then I have no sympathy. That's another pet peeve, people who treat me like a gangster because I'm in my 20s. I dress nicely in polos and shorts not jerseys and wife beaters

I have a friend who leaves words out and replaces words that sound the same as the word she intends to use but the word she uses actually makes no sense. Like she told my other roommate she liked her rosemary. She meant rosary. (Trip, how is this easier than saying malaprop?) Makes me wonder if she wasn't taught right or maybe has a bit of a learning disorder.

I don't know, but your sister says, "you're welkers" when I thanked her for the milkshake and fries. That's kinda.... different. You said that's the way kids talk these days, I guess I'll have to take your word for it.

Now, what does malaprop mean?

No, that's the way SHE talks, she's definitely different... Unlike welkers, malaprop is an actual word. It's replacing a word in a sentence with a different word that sounds the same but means something different and makes the sentence nonsensical. Like saying rosemary instead of rosary.
