SoCS — You’re

Like I can resist.

You’re is you are. YOU ARE WELCOME. It’s not your welcome. All that welcome are not belong to you. I mean, I suppose it could, if someone gave it to you. People are always trying to give me some welcome someone else gave them, but I don’t want that, I want to BE welcome, not have one.

I also want to be okay, not have one. “So glad your okay,” is such a nice gesture, because I really do think the people who type that mean to write “So glad you’re okay.” I never see them type “So glad his okay,” or “So glad hers okay,” but I sure do see people expressing “So glad their okay,” which is less troubling than “So glad there okay” because at least their has some fucking people in it. If there are not people there, then why the fuck should we care if there is okay?

You’re welcome.

Not sometimes, not like i before e, but like, every single time, you’re welcome.

 

And don’t blame your fucking phone, either. If you type youre, it will put the apostrophe in.

It’s not like were, because were is too hard for phones. Phones always want to take it to an extroverted place, talkin about we’re  — and we’re not, we’re just talkin about were. “Were there any winter boots on sale?” I don’t know why phones think we’re all we’rein, as if “We are there any winter boots on sale?” is a question people ask, but we’re not. Sometimes we just want to know if there were. We never want to know if their were. Their were is not our business.

And for all those people who say, “You know what the fuck I mean,” well yeah, of course I do. But ferrealiously, I’m not a nice enough person to enjoy receiving some secondhand welcome you picked up on the interwebz.

My welcome? For me? You shouldn’t have!

In return, I’ve picked up this meme that’s been internet-copied so many times it looks like it rolled off a ditto machine.

    Joey–this is a riot. There was something similar (well, not really but….) on Pinterest: Let’s eat Grandpa or Let’s eat, Grandpa. Cracks me up every time.

  6. Funny and efficient way to remind us of proper grammar. I should not comment since I’m not a native speaker and make occasional mistakes. But. I’ve learned to double check before clicking the Send button. My pet peeve is Its instead of It’s. Even on official documents or billboards. In this case our phones don’t correct, so it’s a question of knowing the difference between a verb contraction and a possessive adjective. BTW it’s not better in French, including in some newspapers.
    In any case, you made me laugh out loud.

      No one is perfect, not even me, but yes, this one gets on my nerves. It’s/its is a whole other thing that drives me crazy. People seldom use its, as though it’s always it’s and it’s just not.
      I’m glad some of the French struggle with their own language, makes people like me feel better about my own usage 🙂
      And thanks!

    “Your welcome.” Next time I see this, I won’t think, “You idiot,” or, if I’m in a mellow mood, “You poor stupid idiot.” I’ll think, “For me? You shouldn’t have!” Joey = Bad Influence

  10. I saw that meme on a coffee cup the other day and almost bought it as a reference book for one of my employees. He would have loved it, but some PC warrior would have thrown a fit. I’m old enough to have been taught alternates for those contractions. It’s – it was, and it has. Those seem to have left our written language completely.

    I’m laughing so hard that I might have missed it, but did you use ‘yore’ ? I mean it’s your score, but if Linda decides to give bonus point, you’re not getting any if you didn’t use yore.

    I sent this to the resident grammar master. She won’t comment, but she’ll (not that I didn’t say shell, like the gas station) probably laugh.

      So glad you enjoyed it 🙂 I hope Grammar Master likes it too.
      No, I didn’t use yore. If I get points deducted, I’ll have to live with it. I really think it was worth the rant.

  19. My utter despair at the misuse of you’re is rapidly being overtaken by my complete confusion over why people can’t tell the difference between lose and loose. THEY DON’T EVEN FREAKIN’ SOUND THE SAME! How about we just spell them both loos and civilisation be damned.

    Okay, I’m done now.

  26. Oh, I love seeing someone else voicing something that really bugs me. I hate it when normal (?) everyday people, have very poor grammar skills. I mean, where they did they go to school?? As the webmaster of my church’s website, I have to do a lot of proofreading before I will put anything on the site that uses poor grammar, unless it’s done on purpose. I just get confused sometime, with possessive nouns, should it be it’s foot, or it’s useless? I remember that if it belongs to someone, then it would be it’s, but please . . . don’t ‘borrow me’ your grammar book from grade school. 😝

    I literally choked (yes, literally! … and it hurts if you happen to be drinking a martini at the time) at “If there are not people there, then why the fuck should we care if there is okay?”

    I just don’t understand why people don’t get it. It’s not hard … even my English-as-a-2nd-Language-Husband gets it.
    … now if we were talking lie down vs lay down, that would be a different conversation. Kill me now. I. JUST. DON’T. GET. IT.

    It’s not from lack of edumacation. More like haste and inattention. I’m sure your (!) guilty of that sometimes too ya know.
