Actually, it's not even two different spellings. Complement is a different word and has an entirely different meaning.

45 - compliment and complement have two completely different meanings. First poster should see it as an opportunity to learn the difference.

Actually, 191, I'm using this opportunity to learn... And, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I will, for once say I'm thankful

Checker - thank you for seeing what Grammar Nazis are all about. I fuck up sometimes too, and I'm thankful when people correct me so I can learn from my mistakes.

You are supposed to ID anyone who appears under 40. It is just a precaution to make sure that where ever you are working doesn't get screwed because somebody sells alchohol to someone who looks 30 who turns out to be 19. Ydi for being an asshole to some kid just trying to do his job.

Who walks to the supermarket? Honestly, everywhere I've lived there's always a shit ton of traffic around a supermarket and off of a major street.

No. They are not required to Card everyone. It's just people who look under 35. At least where I work it is

Well, in Ontario, the law is if you look under 25, then they ask for ID. If you are 37, then you mostly likely don't look like you are 25. But it is probably different in the States and other provinces.

Steven son, look at her profile. "Moorpark, USA." Obvious native. The difference between your and you're is usually taught in elementary school, if not before. Everyone else, the OP's from the United Kingdom. Use your xenophobic eyes, yeah?

OH MY GOD!!! Someone confused "your" and "you're"? ON THE INTERNET?!?!?! STOP THE PRESSES!!!! Maybe you should find other things to occupy your time rather than jumping on small, common grammatical mistakes. Try playing in traffic or drinking bleach.

#66 It's not because it's a common grammatical mistake that it makes it right to do it. Correcting people is not necessarily a bad thing, it might help them to not do it again :)

So you're saying that you're illiterate and can't spell "Your" correctly, so the iPhone changes it to "your", and... HUH? Turn auto-correct off and type like a sane human being if you're so invested in defending your literacy. Unless of course you're just pulling a Chantel here and lack the stones, the rocks, the balls, the "cojones" if you will, to just admit that you're an uneducated moron.

Reply

people, stop being grammar Nazis. "youre" turns into "your" instead of "you're" on my autocorrect, so STFU. Maybe consider turning off your autocorrect, since you're clearly incompetent at checking what you've typed...

Yeah, I can believe that you were dropped on your baby as a child. After all, you DO expect us to believe your shit excuses, rather indicative of a sub-par intellect. That and constantly trying to have the last word. Ah well, have your ill-advised satisfaction, since I wouldn't want to be a hypocrite and grab the last word myself!

as someone who knows several bright young university students dropped on their heads as children (including one with a freaky flat/soft bit of skull as he was dropped from a fair height and it never grew properly after that), and whose brother has dispraxia (which some would argue is a mental handicap, yet he is possibly the biggest grammar nazi in all the land) i can safely say being dropped on your head as a baby, or even being 'mentally handicapped' does not necessarily impair grammar and spe

You should all read Joseph Conrad. He has a level of control over the English language like that of a college professor, yet English wasn't his first language, either... More like his 3rd.

ah cock, wrote you're not your... it is 2am and i'm writing an essay, but that's no excuse... just shoot me now before i turn into a complete idiot!

Congratulations. I lost 64 IQ points by reading this thread. I'm now a drooling, blithering idiot like everyone else here. Fuck.

113 - continuing to make the same 'mistake' you've just defended as an error on the part of your handheld device isn't doing anything in your favor.

I believe the general consensus amoungst those who have an IQ greater than 85, is that you're pathetic for not caring... get a proper education or do not write comments on this website. You will be torn to shreds. P.s TheIsland, you are my favourite person for the day :)

It's almost like English is our way of expressing ourselves (if it's your language) and if you can't learn simple grammar then how do you expect others to understand you.

Why does attempting to help you express yourself mean we are obsessed with putting people down? I think it shows how much we care about you.

160: love the comment (no sarcasm) 209: I think her entire thanksgiving was something like "omg did dey reply to my you're-your argument on FML yet?!" Whoever created this thread (lost track reading all the comments): quit your gripin. I fell off plenty of stuff as a kid and I turned ok.... Ish... And mental illness? That's no excuse for being a baby on FML. Goodnight, J is out.

Why Is everyone jumping on her case? So she put 'your' instead of 'you're'. Everyone knew what she was talking about. Her grammar wasn't that bad that we couldn't understand her. People slip up. We are human. Most of us rely on autocorrect a lot instead of just turning it off and typing it ourselves. Cut the girl some slack.

It's funny because the original commenter, who's comment now has over a 100 thumbs up, is being thumbed down for everything they say. Just saying.

But this isn't an English paper, or a bill that's trying to be pushed into a law. Nor is it a report for some job. This is fml. The people who bitch about people using your and you're are retarded. There's no reason to. As you read further you can figure out which one they were intending to use but being as its ( oh no I didn't use it's ) not important lay off and do something useful with your life instead of bitching that somebody wasn't grammatically correct on fml.

See even on 265 everyone makes mistakes. You have the balls to criticize me when you're just being a hypocrite. I know the differences between your and you're I had a fucking typo back the fuck off. And yes this did make my thanksgiving because I don't celebrate it. I'm native American and ya same do celebrate it but a lot of us don't. I'm one of the ones that don't. So thanks for making it worth while. :3

At first I didn't realize that I had spelled you're wrong I thought he was talking about my use of ass tool and stfu I WAS dropped as a child and it's not some piss pore excuse as to making a mistake. Everyone does make mistakes. And I'm too think headed to lose this. So mr. Grammar nazi. Dish up your best because I eat pathetic lil boys like you for breakfast

Sorry, you're Native American? Really? I study Achaeology and we would be interested to learn how THAT bone structure ends up on someone with enough Native American blood to actually class themselves as Native American. So from a purely anthropological point of view, really now??

I am 25% I associate myself more with the native American side of myself than I do any of my other heritages. I would love it if America was still tribal instead of our stupid govt. We have now

Oh my god. My eyes are bleeding. Pathetic Internet arguments with people you don't even know. Quit wasting your time crafting witty smartass comments and go be superior somewhere else.

It makes you wonder if, when these people write on paper, they suck at spelling and grammar this horribly...by the way, I read the whole thread. Working on Thanksgiving night sucks. My brother was actually dropped on his head and is in special needs classes and has more sense than half of the illiterate commenters on here. I have a complete high school education and am commenting from an iPhone and it didn't fuck up my spelling. I dare somebody to find an error in my spelling. ^.^

276: (just woke up and read this one comment, so I'm sure more comments are coming!) Being Native American is no excuse for not celebrating thanksgiving. I'm pretty damn sure ya ain't living on a reservation or even pure blood Native American

Wow nothing better to do than have an epic argument about grammar haha never fails to annoy and disappoint. I hate it when I see a lot of comments with misspelled words when they don't know the language but in these cases I could care less even if she said ur instead ha hilarious people

day 2 of the ongoing idiot debate, must stop reading and go to sleep need to find nourishment, thirst and hunger unbearable will write more when fully stable

It should be 'piss poor', not 'piss pore'. And actually it kind of is. My mom fell when she was pregnant with me, I've been hit in the head with tennis balls, volleyballs basketballs, footballs, pretty much everything, I've also fallen down a full flight of stairs multiple times, once I whacked my head so hard on the stairs my mom thought I might have had a concussion so she woke up in the middle of the night to ask me what my name is and all those sorts of questions. Even after all those hea

What doucuebag thinks acne is a detracting quality that makes someone lesser of a person. I mean sure, it's kind of gross, but generally people can't control it. Ugh, makes me mad that this ass who moronically forgot his wallet is making fun of the guy for that.

182 They had to pick on superficial nonsense because they obviously couldn't make any comment on the individuals intelligence. It'd be like a penguin giving an emu a hard time for not being able to fly.
