Whose You're Grammar Police?

5 and a half years ago I married the grammar police.

I didn't know it at the time, but bad grammar drives Crystal up the wall. She frequently corrects my use of "less"/"fewer", and seems to find people using the wrong "you're" almost daily.

Yesterday my parents came up to visit and we were looking at a restaurant's online menu when Crystal noticed this.
Notice anything?

Your Back!?!?

On the professionally designed website of a major restaurant chain! This is a tragedy! How can this happen!?!?

Maybe it's because Crystal points them out to me, but it seems like this sort of thing is happening more frequently lately. I'm sure someone can relate it back to computer usage and the fact no one knows how to cursive write anymore.

How 'bout you? Do these grammar faux-pas bother you? Are you guilty of any of them?


  1. Poor grammar and spelling are irritating indeed. There's also use of possessive to indicate plural (for example, "my two friend's are here"), Add to the mix the use of 'text' language, and you can only wonder how some people ever got through elementary school!

  2. When ѕomeοne writes an article he/she maintаins
    the thought оf а user in his/her braіn that how a usег cаn
    κnow it. Theгefore that's why this article is great. Thanks!

    Usually it is triggеred bу the pаssion displayеd іn thе post
    I read. And after this post "Whose You're Grammar Police?".
    I was аctually moved enough to write a thought :) I do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or does it look like like some of the remarks appear like left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I would like to follow you. Could you make a list all of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
