FML - The follow-up

Today, I tried to explain to my 23-year-old boyfriend the difference between "your" and "you're". I do this every other day, but it's like his head is permanently stuck in the first grade. FML

LiveLoveLys Say more :
OP here. I love my boyfriend, but you wouldn't BELIEVE how lazy and unmotivated he is sometimes. I think his attitude of not giving a fuck goes back to how he's always been fed with a silver spoon and been given EVERYTHING in life. He feels as if he doesn't need to do anything, and that it's all up to everyone else. That goes for getting a job and earning money to pay the bills as well as stupid stuff like this. His attitude is "if they can figure it out, why should I care?" That doesn't make him a bad person, but it's hugely insensitive. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the people here talking crap about me are exactly the same as he is. That "your" vs "you're" thing bugs the hell out of me anyway and it's not like committing the difference to memory is a hard thing. Long rant done, thanks. Edit: I didn't mean to reply to this comment. :S

Hellbilly - You consider poor grammar "living life to the fullest"? Really? Well I have bad news for you: ALL jobs require decent grammar. Oh, and by the way... grammar*

My apologies Doc it was really late when i wrote that it was suppose to be sarcastic which they've managed to not yet include a sarcasm font anywhere. And for the record my job requires no writing what so ever.

Hellbilly - while "your" and "you're" can really only be mixed up in writing, grammar also applies to speech. Therefore, unless you don't use any form of communication where you work, you need grammar. And MissHayleyJames, don't be a biotch.

I imagine Hellbilly as Milton from Office Space. That's the only way I can picture him never talking to anyone. And #214 -- not everyone who works the drive-thru at a fast food restaurant or delivers pizzas is a good-for-nothing, lazy sonofabitch who doesn't desire to do things with his/her life. Often, there are these things called "circumstances" that one must deal with; perhaps the person ended up on the wrong end of life's proverbial seesaw. |the kid|

And everybody else that replied to me yea i get it its grammar it's important. But its not like i don't use some form of it.

I mean for people who do it with no intentions of doing anything else. If it's a transitional job between better jobs or something while you're in school, that's fine, but there are people who are perfectly content working those jobs for the rest of their lives because they have such low standards and just don't care to better themselves. Warehouse work is the same. It should be a transitional place, not a long term solution. Some of the people that work these jobs shouldn't even be allowed out in society because they're so idiotic.

Yeah, but not everyone has such low standards, and if the boyfriend doesn't understand it by now, he's probably legally retarded. No offense to the mentally handicapped.

Yeah, I really wish we could ship idiots like you off to the moon or something. The whole not learning from mistakes thing and not giving a shit about his partner's ticks? That's not a good attitude or a good sign for the relationship. The man should have some self-respect.

There's a difference between not caring about a partner's "ticks" and carefully proofreading everything you write. Sometimes it's simply easier to type your if all you want is to communicate the meaning.

Intelligence might not be what "makes people love each other", but it sure as hell is my first requirement. If I can't hold a decent conversation with the guy (in all forms), I don't give two rips how cute he is. Stupidity is a deal breaker.

59- you suck for making no sense, so do I, I think. Sorry for saying you suck. Anyways... I think OP is a known grammar Nazi from FML and just gave us the perfect fake story to shove in all the faces of the illiterate FML users who can't use grammar for shit. The point of the FML? Idk learn how to pronounce simple every fucking day language. Thumbs up or thumbs down, you either like this comment or hate it. Pick one, I obviously don't give care.

Yes necessarily, 161. I'm not sure what you think I was referring to, but I am fairly sure that you're wrong. The word "one" was missing from between the words "no" and "has" and no amount of incorrect punctuation could replace it.

Man, the worst thing for me is when people misuse the word "whom" because they think using it interchangeably with "who" makes them sound more intelligent. The only thing worse than a dumbass is a pretentious dumbass.
