Grammatical errors like this one drive me absolutely insane. Maybe because it's part of an ad, but seriously people, get someone to proofread your stuff before you put it out there for the world to see.



Lose does not equal loose.
Their, there, and they're all all separate words, with separate meanings.
To, too, and two are also different.
Your and you're are completely different.

The other day in my dance class, a girl had a shirt on that said, "My library is better than your's!" Wow. It was some kind of promotional fun run or something for a library, but you'd think that especially in a library, someone would notice that that is a contraction, meaning, "Your is"....which doesn't exist. Come on, people. Give me a break.

Hooray! I'm so glad that I'm not the only one that obsesses over stupid things like that. Hip hooray for being cousins!
