Public Service Announcement: "Your" vs. "You're"

Recommended Posts

FYI: "Your" means belonging to or associated with a person (ie: Your shotgun is over there, your wife is on the phone, etc...).  "You're" is the contraction of "You are" (ie: You're not very good with grammar.).

Don't forget There and Their. Or two, to or too. Or, were or we're.

I didn't want to get carried away!  My English teacher wife can't even look at this page-the grammar and spelling gives her a migraine.

Where’s that thread of things that make me angry .... I didn’t think about these when that thread was around. 

Whether you're angry or not, bad spelling and grammar make you look like a big dummy.  Pay attention to them.

A lot of guys on here, in real life or on social media can not differentiate between

Then and Than.... it's really annoying af.

Then is associated with what comes next, as in I will go to the store THEN I will go home.

Than is associated with a comparison, hunting is better THAN going to the mall with my girlfriend.

Ok carry on
