Subject: What words 'throw' you out of a story?

I've been reading and I came across this word. It is not the first time I've come across this word. And, GAH! I can barely talk about it! *thrashes madly*

WHY? WHY must people write "noone" when they mean "no one"?

Completely throws me out of a story (and into mad fits of thrashing).

Noone is a time of day! Well, if you drop the 'e', anyway.

Grrrr! *gnashes teeth*

But it made me curious.

So. What words throw you out of a story?
