No, very very very rarely.
15 yrs ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 3:52:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
You're= You are
and your as in your body. No.
15 yrs ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 4:57:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. I'd have to be tired/drunk to do that.
15 yrs ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 5:21:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
If it's personal, it's your

If it's descriptive, it's you're...you are.

Actually I find people have much more trouble with there, their and they're

15 yrs ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 1:29:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
I know so many people who mess up their "yours", and I have to say that it's one of my ultimate pet peeves.
15 yrs ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 1:31:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
No ... not a problem. It isn't exactly a difficult concept to grasp on to.
15 yrs ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 1:41:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, not with your or you're but I'm starting to get confused with their and they're. I know they're is they are..so why am I confused?
Ok, that wasn't the question.

There = position, location.
Their = ownership, eg: their book, their dog.
They're = They are (descriptive) they're coming over for dinner.

I knew I should have been a grammar teacher.

Only when drunk.
15 yrs ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 9:40:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I never do.

Thanks for that OzArcher.
15 yrs ago - Tuesday 6/28/05 - 1:34:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes.

It bloody annoys me. >:(

15 yrs ago - Tuesday 6/28/05 - 3:05:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Almost never
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 7/15/05 - 3:28:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, my mom's an english major and my dad's a teacher...it's been drilled into my head since i was 5.
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 7/15/05 - 3:32:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, I have a problem with there, their and they're
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 7/23/05 - 10:19:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, i never learned it in school and i didnt think there was a difference until one of my teachers pointed it out in third grade. I make sure i use the right "your" now.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 8/9/05 - 5:31:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
not really...there are only two of them...you're and Your...it shouldn't be that hard to distinguish by just looking at one of them. >>You're is you+are together, and i guess you can figure out what that means on (your) own.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 8/9/05 - 5:39:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't. They're so simple...
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 8/9/05 - 5:49:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
along with 'there, their and they're' and 'where, were and wear'; all homophones in the town wear I grew up
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 8/14/05 - 8:05:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I never do.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 8/14/05 - 8:09:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes... when I'm not paying attention or I just don't care enough.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 9/11/05 - 5:58:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but it annoys the hell out of me when people do.

Yeah, I know. And I see a lot of people do it.

14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 9/15/05 - 5:09:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 9/15/05 - 5:09:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.

Not since 3rd grade.
