Simple mistakes like "spagetti" instead of "spaghetti".
1) Things like "thise" instead of "those", accidentally typing i, being right next to o.
2) auto-correct choosing the wrong word.
Typing things like "theres" instead of "theirs" because it's easier to type and sounds the same, figuring "Who cares?".
Typing the dollar sign after the number, such as "25$" instead of "$25".

I've never found casual misspellings/typos to bother me-- I make them all the time too so I understand the pain.
Purposeful misspellings annoy me if someone is asking a question and it is full of grammar mistakes... Like if someone REALLY wants advice on something, and they end up writing one long paragraph of grammar-cringing horror, it slightly irks me. I wish that, since they want us to give the time to read/answer it, they would at least try to spell stuff correctly.
Rather, I'll just skip over the question if it is bad like that. Casual typos don't bother me though.
Note: It doesn't bother me, but severe (to the point of "wtf are they saying") misspellings serve to make the writer look much less intelligent. While they may not always annoy me, it influences my perception of them.0
