Grammar Lesson #1

"Your" refers to something belonging to you. I.e. "Your face is ugly." and "I am your master."

"You're" is short for you are. I.e. "You're an asshole." and "If you didn't learn this in elementary school, you're a moron."

There is no reason anyone should not know this.

Something that really irritates me, are people who post without using spell check. Quite a few, these days, are saying they won't use it because they don't have to, and if we don't like it, don't read their blog. Fine by me! They want to appear moronic, no skin off my nose!

I think we should start a movement. No, not a bowel movement, sheesh. A grammar movement. Go around to different blogs, and make fun of them in their comments section for not spelling words correctly. Call ourselves the grammar police, or something trite like that.

Yes, I'm kidding. I've only had one cup of coffee so far. But I am sick of the grammatical errors on all of these blogs. It really depresses me to know that America is filled with trailer trash grammatical idiots that don't give a shit about it.

I use to be a victim of making a mistake between your/you're (And occasionally do if I don't proof read what I type.) Another one that gets me is are/our. I think because the words sound the same is the reason why people get them mixed up.

To the poster above, I too feel the same way sometimes. Must be pet peeve of mine.

Would it be possible to include text talk in the grammar police thing? It makes me want to cut fingers off people!

The irony is that people think truncated or idiotically mispelt words are only used online and here our nation is employing "u, yea, hav, wen, wot, etc." in our daily scrawls, essays, business reports, letters, and God save us, our speech. Who hasn't heard the occasional, 'lol' (literally pronounced as a word) or 'w.t.f'.
So they call us the dot.com generation.
I wonder why!

'Alot' is my big peeve. Two words, folks, two words.
