Is it normal to get annoyed quotation marks facing the same direction like ”this”

Why and how do people accidentally write quotes like ”this”?

Is It Normal?

  • My dad just died so I don't get upset over things like quotation marks.

    • I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't imagine the pain you're feeling.

      • Thanks. I posted it more as a statement of fact. I didn't mean it to seem like a play for sympathy. It leaves you with a feeling of unreality how someone who has always been a big part of your life just doesn't exist anymore. Like the flick of a switch. Poof, they're gone.

        • I understand, I just wanted to offer my condolences because I know that must be one of the most difficult things a person can go through. I can't imagine. I went through similar with my step-dad who was in my life since I was 5, who passed when I was a teen, and you're right, it doesn't feel real and it's hard to get used to their absence.

    • That's awful, I'm really sorry to hear that. Getting annoyed by punctuation is really vapid by comparison. I hope things get easier and that you've got people to help you through anything you might be struggling with

  • Use inch marks, then everyone's happy.

  • I think they do it out of laziness more often.

  • Me too. Is it even a choice, though? My phone's keyboard only has one set of quotation marks, which are omnidirectional. Maybe on a computer, they are different (I haven't really paid attention to those for a long time, despite typing on them for work 🤣).

  • Better than having no opening quotation mark” or no “closing quotation mark. You just want to throw extra symbols somewhere on the page so they're not quoting to infinity.

  • Mine are "omnidirectional" so that's not really a problem when I write on my phone.

    Kinda anal about the direction though if I'm on a keyboard. Though I never go on this site with a laptop. My phone is way easier for forums.

    • I'm kind of the opposite. I have a working phone but 95% or more of the browsing I do is on my computer

  • Mine always do that , because I add unnecessary spaces between “ symbols “
