National Grammar Day Is March 4

[4] Be sure to let me know the next time your in town; I have a new lunch place for us to try.       

        Correction: You’re in town.  I believe most of you know the difference between your [something belongs to you] and you’re [contraction for “you are”], but I see this error all the time and it flat makes me crazy. Same song, different verse: people who write their or there when they mean they’re.    I know how easy it is to make this kind of minor goof when composing a quick email or text. And I also know it isn’t the end of the world. But this one in particular– your instead of you’re – is like fingernails on the blackboard for me.
