Your making me insane

Just had to delete a co-worker's email because it contained a grammatical error and I couldn't stand to look at it.

It was the last one sent, so it kept popping up with its incorrect "your" where there should obviously be a "you're".

We have incredible amounts of storage, so I usually save every email as a quick, searchable reference, but this one had to go. That "your" was irking me with every email sent. Like a giant, dangling scab, just begging to be ripped off with a satisfying punch of the delete key.

I might be able to forgive a their, there, they're mix-up, but come on!

Your vs. You're? You've got a 50/50 shot at it from the start!

At least I no I'm know moron.

Edit: It's taking every ounce of willpower to not fix the intentional errors in this post. Irony of ironies!

Edit... again: So do you also think I made that last edit to ensure no one believed I'd unknowingly made those errors? I have a problem.

It's so nice to know I'm not alone.

I almost fainted when I saw a grammatical error in the title of this post! Whew--what a relief--it was only an illustration.

Happy New Year, Kristin!

Your definately unalone.

P.S. My biggest spelling peeve these days is people putting an "a" in definitely.
