You’re going to need to hear this.

There is something that has been weighing down on my heart for a long time.  I need to share this because there is an alarming trend I’m noticing on facebook, twitter and other popular social sharing sites.  It must be stopped and the only way I know how to stop it is to tell the world!  OK here it goes…

The word your is used as a possessive pronoun and the word you’re is a contraction of the words you and are.  Here is a sentence using the word your.  “I believe that is your red stapler over there.”  And here is a sentence using the word you’re.  “You’re so great for finding my stapler!”

While we’re at it, the word definitely doesn’t have an a in it, and the word grammar doesn’t have an e in it.  To hear means to listen and here is a place.  Their is another word used as a possessive pronoun and there indicates a place the same way here does but can also be used as an adverb.

And if you aren’t sure what a possessive pronoun or an adverb are, then take a minute to look it up before posting on the internet.  Do it for the children.

Ahhh I feel much better now.  Thanks for listening.
