...to know how to put the letters together... because I'm getting crazy here.
the letters are(or word/s)

'a lot' and for me 'alot'
FF says to me the alot is a spelling error or an invalid word.
I've seen both but I need to know what I really should use because I have to be spelling it right, or this will make me look like a fool (IQ<30 :P :P)

----
Adv. 1. a lot - to a very great degree or extent; "I feel a lot better"; "we enjoyed ourselves very much"; "she was very much interested"; "this would help a great deal"
I catch myself typing it as one word all the time :oops:

Thanks I'll try to fix my spelling error when I see myself using that.

hehe, same here but I think of it as this;
if you don't use the space between it and write that "word" frequently then you'll save 'a lot' of time
:lol: :lol:

Yes! For the sake of efficiency I will continue to write it out as "alot"
