Your invited to leave you're comments

Okay. Raise your hand if you cringed when you read the title of my post. You didn't see anything amiss? Take a second to reread. Go ahead. I will wait.

I had a high school teacher who drilled into us the importance of correct spelling and correct word usage.

These mistakes drive me nuts!

This sign was from our local super center. "Your invited". Um... Your invited friend came to the party?

Let's review:
your means possessive (like my or his)
you're is contraction for you are (like I'm)

While we are at it...
Hear (uses your ear)
Here (is spelled like there)

There (like here)
They're (contraction of they are)
Their (possessive like her)

Lesson over. Any questions?
