Their is nothing more annoying than people that get there grammar mixed up. Im sure theyre some folks on here that get it wrong all the time and theirs no excuse for it.
There are (excuses) .... mind you, English is not the first / native language for many on here (#3 for me) and auto-correct (I prefer to call it auto-wrong) sometimes / often interferes and we don't always catch / revert those "corrections".
But will admit that "getting it wrong all the time" is actually a talent - surely people get it right sometimes, just like even the blind squirrel manages to find nuts.

While on topic - I struggle with chose / choose :unsure:

Yes, auto-correct gets it wrong as often as it gets it right.

As for chose/choose, just use chose when referring to past tense;
I chose the black one
She chose the blue one
Those kids chose to go on the merry-go-round


Except in instances like this-
Which one did you choose?
Which one would/could/should you choose?
And then it was time for her to choose


For everything else, it's choose;
I choose that one
It's up to them to choose for themselves
When it comes time to choose...


Maybe somebody who knows more about this might chime in at some point.
