Learn some fucking English or leave me alone! "Your" is for something that belongs to you, like 'your herpes'. And "you're" is a contraction for "you are", like "you're not sleeping with me".

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. LOL. I'm an English Major and those are some of my biggest pet peeves. Absolutely fantastic.
Actually, I'm a journalism major and I know that punctuation marks should always go inside quote marks.
I am not an english major, however I am a guy that is fucking annoyed with dumb ass girls(or people in general)...I correct them constantly on spelling and grammar....if you can't spell, you cant have my dick inside you
"you're" is a contraction. . . as is "herpes"
I'm an English major too. And I think I love you, 919. That was fantastic.
It's context dependent, 10:42. Also, some styles require different grammatical structure, like MLA, APA, etc.
11:17....no, hahahah grammer is just plain wrong....its grammar...
BITCH!!.... No I am actually kidding that was really awesome! Good work!!!
11:09....it is actually spelled "grammar"....not "grammer"...jesus tap dancing christ
marry me. even if you're a dude
Thank you. Your/you're errors irk me.
I thoughts that I were a only grammar nazi. You peoples' corrects every thing. Even I: who is from Mexican: learnt english. Its the sham when even whites can not figure it,
"Keep refreshing the screen(,) guys(;)
Harumph harumph harumph....hey I didn't get a harumph outta that guy!
11:01(1) admit it, you're not a real mexico
12:03, I don't like standed motorists; they are usually poor and I don't like the poor. Also, proofread your posts so you don't look like an ass as you attempt to call others out.
The National Enquirer... Wrong... No!!!!!!
Yes, I am an English major as well, and I am constantly correcting people's grammar and spelling... major headache/turnoff. It really pisses me off when I find really obvious screwups when workshopping other people's essays. Makes me annoyed and flaccid.
Whoever wrote this. I love you.
I'm a grammar Nazi and I'm a double major in history and math. I'm also vp of my fraternity and a student athlete. So fuck you 11:40.
want to know what would go great with this pie. some cool wHip. wait...say that again. what? cool wHip? are you trying to say cool whip? yes, cool wHip. say cool. cool. now say whip. wHip. cool whip. cool wHip. you're eating hair.
I am totally sending this message to my ex hahahaha
rabble rabble rabble...took our jobs...rabble rabble rabble
hahahahahahaha-- love whoever posted this.
Another English major who appreciates this.
HAHAHA. Chapel hill NC..represent!
THANK YOU NORTH CAROLINA!
OP, where in the 919 are you located? I'm just curious. From one 919 grammar nazi to another, I salute you.
No, 10:56 does not win. 10:56 is an idiot. It's "other people's essays."
Okay, I understand that. But what lazy English department style allows incorrect use of punctuation? Because it's not MLA, APA or AP style.
I don't know what a six year plan is but good for him, it sounds productive.
Giving english lessons over text messaging is pretty lame. true statement, but lame.
OP, you're the man. Even if you're actually female, you're still the man.
Nice! Love it. I hate bad grammar and text speak. Good work OP. You're a legend. Your post is great.
Your examples suck! Take a grammar class asshole!
Thank you! Someone finally made that distinction
Thank God someone has said something about this. I'm only a sophmore in highschool and this annoys me to no end. I spell out words and punctuate even in text messages. Seriously, how hard is it to move your pinky finger over a key and push that little button. Don't even get me started on the correct use of the word "you." I live in Virginia, and if i hear one more person say "ya'll" and then proceed to argue with me that the correct form is simply "you," I am going to scream!
I teach remedial high school English. I fight this battle every day with my kids who are low-functioning. If the person to whom you are referring is not slow and just effin' stupid, rock on OP.
12:07, I graduated in four years with a good gpa and partied my ass off. Burbif you'd rather sit around and smoke dope do your damn thing, but don't criticize me for not being lazy.
I agree 1:53!! Whole heartedly!
OP, the periods go inside of quotation marks at the end of a sentence. Also, don't begin sentences with "and." If you're going to be a grammar Nazi, be a good one.
Are we in debate class?
The (number) yar plan is the number of years it will take to graduate. College is 4 years long but some folks take 5, 6, and even 7 year plan and stretch it out.
Agreed! Grammatical error suck donkey balls
greatness exist at the top of this page.
I fkn hate when people don't understand the dif. Fkn americanized education:/
There is nothing wrong with taking a little pride in the English language. However there is perhaps a problem with taking too much pride.
People should also know the difference between 'who' and 'whom'
Who's the grammer freak?
I love love love this.
Grammer always matters.
There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
Just reslised that probably sounded retarded, I'm not from and have never been to the US so I don't get your crazy college shit.
It's about time someone shouted, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it any more!" about the incorrect grammar and the butchering of the English language! My pet peeve is saying, "me and blah blah". Blah blah is first, moron! and it's not "me" it's "I". sheesh!
You people need to get a life!! This is a retarded text used to amuse a retarded audience, thanks for playing!!
Now that I know your/you're pisses people off so much, I may just switch them to fuck with you all!!! MWHAHAHAHA
i saw this on youtube a couple days ago
My friend said he could see me saying this.
I'm an Archaeology major, and I really don't give a fuck what your major is. Just laugh at the text and move on.
Hell yeah, 919!! Southerners CAN spell/use proper grammar, thankyouverymuch.
The national enquirer is wrong. Bitch.
You sir, are and idiot.
And 11:10 - try 'impossible to glean your meaning' if you're trying to correct other people's grammar outside your own ability it looks bad if you fuck up...
To 8:47 and 1:37
They're quotes, not parentheses
To little man who called her a frigid fucking
cunt...expected from the possessor of a needle
dick who only knows Mrs. Hand and her four
I say this all the time without the herpes analogy of course. Haha hilarious.
It's grammar not grammer; spelling also matters.
Epic fucking win. Kudos to OP.
A fucking men!!!!!!!
Omg, so funny! My older sister used to get mad at me all the time for texting "your" instead of "you're" and now it's one of my biggest pet peeves. I love the examples you gave though, hilarious!
Wow. Was like three insults in one text. Best use of 160 characters ever.
You're examples are great!
Your rite, peeple needz to speek's moor goodly in America.
masters in mathematics!!!!!! I bet the ladies go wild when you tell them that.
10:56, you win. Also, don't grammar police a text. They're all rife with "errors" when it's really just laziness and shorthand.
11:13(1) Hookd on fonix werkd fer me
The comments are great! Spent 20 mins just reading them ha
11:59, why? Seems odd. Where I'm from we all want to finish school...
As if this is the most talked about post on TFLN. Keep refreshing the screen guys, maybe somebody has something new to say about grammar!!! Fucking pathetic.
11:10(1), your syntax is bleeding. Better put a tampon in that asap.
yeah, in this age of free texts there is no excuse for not using proper spelling, punctuation and grammar.. except perhaps the sorry state of the education system in some cases.
You may hate grammar nazis, but grammar nazis hate retards like you.
I know 11:43(3) wants to play Dungeons and Dragons after school today. weeeeeee!!!!!
Also a huge pet peeve of mine. However, now that I started teaching English as a foreign language I'm a little more laid back about it. Native speakers have no excuse, but foreigners taking an English class do.
to 9:33 i think YALL have enough grammar problems in texas, missing one letter for "to" or "too" is a simple mistake. chill out
1:53....even if we did that we'd still have the same president
I am in love with the person who sent this text.
Grammar = proper syntax, punctuation, etc.
Grammer = your grandmother, as in: "boy where's yer grammer at" (envision it said by a dumb hick and it makes sense).
I don't know about that, but if he's that involved he's definitely on the 6 year plan for graduating.
Though you made some errors, good point! I hate dumb fucks who have no skills in the grammar and spelling department.
That's (short for that is) harsh. I'm pretty sure, even with poor english, he or she got the message. Good Job.
you're all stupid. the example isn't quoting anything. the QUOTATION MARKS are used correctly. learn some punctuation before you become the stupid asshole that fails at correcting someone. go to he'll. or school.
I have a racist friend...she enjoyed this
Citizens of the US should have to take an intelligence test in order to vote for our President. Including the correct usage of "Your, You're - Their, There, They're -and To, Too." We might be in a better situation right now.
12:07 is a little rich bitch. But hey they shit on the "poor" and go home to their cheating wives. I wasn't trying to show anyone up. I hope you have a happy atressful life where your wife and kids hate you.
I bet that the ppl bitching are the ppl noboby likesto hangout with. English is probably your only disipline and I would like to see you try math or chemistry.
Makes me proud to be a 919.
Thank you! Also, it's libRary. Not liberry.
I'd fuck anything especially stupid chicks...
This person is a dick! I get the importance of grammar, but it's a fucking text message, not you mid term...relax man
It's actually y'all
people only bitch about "Grammar Police" when they're the ones realizing they can't spell. Get over it, and pick up a damn book. Thank you.
It's not that others are dumb/ poor priorities; they are just enjoying their young lives. Not all want to rush school and get a "real" job. Sit back, pull that stick out of your ass and watch the sun rise and set with a fatty in your mouth (not a fat person but a blunt)
The Enquirer is the best source for accurate information, geez. Amateurs
whoever you are, you are my hero
Okay... okay... okay
Just a little pinprick
There'll be no more aaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick
Now can you stand up... stand up... stand up?
I do believe it's working, good
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on it's time to go
the herpes analogy makes it! you are my hero!
Seriously it's not that big of a deal people chill out, and smoke a blunt!
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
Thank you Raleigh, NC for that lovely grammar lesson.
It's txt'n. Grammer doesn't apply ass fuck!
periods in texts mean pauses in thought or the end of one idea. grow the fuck up october 8th, whatever the hell time you posted that shitty comment
Good Grammar and Spelling is HOT. 919 for the fucking win.
Wow... And so many idiots can't fig"you're" that shit out. EFL...
2:49 who really gives a shit?!? Grammars a bitch anyways!
Am I in an online english class, or is this TFLN?
LOVE THIS! way to go!
I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Now can you show me where it hurts
Gotta love the self-important Grammar Police.
Awesome. Just awesome.
This should have ended with "you're not sleeping with me because of your herpes."
Some folks have to work to pay for it, and others are just that dumb / have poor priorities.
11:32 you're a raging douche
The National Enquirer said grammer, so I'm gonna go with that
And "a lot" is two words like "you make me want to fuck you a lot"
'to' and 'too'
really? you cant add that extra o? its a three letter fucking word! i let contractions go cause i live in texas, but if you arent smart enough to distinguish between to and too i will shank your ass.
Did 11:50(1) just make a Blazing Saddles reference? If he did, 11:50 FTW
is this a dick measuring contest? You lose, 2 mm is last place^^^
Your mom has more to do with my cock, what a co inky dink. Beeeotch
2.25 You represent what is wrong with the world.
^ above me is ignorant.
11:15= "not a real mexico" funniest shit ever...ahahahahah
I must admit, I'm hung over as hell at around 930 in the morning and this is the best thing I've seen in a while. GO GRAMMAR NAZIS!!!!!
I have to admit this is my pet peeve as well... that and the their, their, they're misuse.
Ummm, I'm pretty sure that "like" should be "as".
I love it!!! Thank you!!!
From the way the text reads, the period does go on the outside of the parentheses, he's ending his sentence, not the quote...
11:55--haha cool wHip
they're, their, there---another pet peeve of mine
Too many fake tfln with herpes in them. Played that out real quick.
this is fucking funny. i enjoy.
Fantastic text. Your/you're is one of my biggest pet peeves. How hard is it to add an apostrophe and an "e"?
Hahahahah this is amazing
Thank you. Thank you so much. It's about TIME someone told this. Thank you for making such a great text, and sharing it with TFLN
feel thy weiner - ftw
Oh and 910 and 919 are the area codes for where I live!
Whts an area code???
3:36, agreed-- in this case, it definitely makes more sense to have the period outside of the quotation marks.
The OP is my new hero.
This is awesome, my boyfriend is a 24-year-old grammatical moron. I sent him this.
11:49, it's robble robble robble, hamburglar
this may be my favorite text ever.
Way to go, OP, way to go.
hahah i love how all the grammar nazis are correcting eachother.
Wow there's actually smart people in Raleigh! :-)
Hello... hello... hello
Is there anybody in there
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home
Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave, but don't leave me
Choose your own ground
Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be
11:20 I talk like that and I'm working on a masters in mathematics. Hick, yes, dumb, I think not. Asshole.
iPhone autocorrects when I try to say 'hell' so don't even try to use that you dumb fuck
Actually, the one that gets fucked up most often is there, they're and their.
this person is my hero
I journalism, punctuation always goes inside quotation marks. That's not necessarily the case in other forms of writing. It often depends on context.
You're supposed to put punctuation within the quotation marks, for the record.
Yes! I can't stand it when people don't know how to use such a simple part of the English language. Go back to school or stop talking to me. YOUR choice!
Love how this is connected to stds and sex in some way that's how it should be taught in school kids will learn better
-future English teacher
I'm just gonna type something to see how many people will correct it.
haha that's amazing. Or thats amazing? Not sure.
I'm in college and yesterday my English teacher starting teaching us what apostrophes are. Are you kidding me.
Funny but you need to put the periods inside quotations
I'm so glad 919 finally represented with something good. Ty, whoever you are.
This is ridiculous. Everyone needs to kindly shut the fuck up.
I love you so much this is freaking hilarious and sooooo true
12:07 I know not all people want to rush uni/college, just curious about the plans. I have no stick up my arse, doing postgrad to keep living the life
type faster, that way you'll make more mistakes
and a pretty good indicator of your personality, preaching on TFLN^^^
I want to have proper grammar's babies.
I'm an English major, too. But seriously.. let it go. You're all just making yourselves look like asses by trying to outsmart one another. Grow up.
As if this is the most talked about posting on TFLN. Keep refreshing the screen guys, maybe somebody else has something to say about grammar... pathetic.
How can u even consider OP to be legend?!? What makes u think he wants to sleep with you after that shit? Personally, if you can't text message someone with abbreviations then WTF do we txt for
11:43. And you get how much pussy? Your on ass and who fucking cares about other ppl grammar. Your "trying" to show how some ppl in society are "stupid" but seriously. If you really want to help pull off the road and help a stalled car.
I'm 12 and what is this
who cares, you is spelled you not u but, for time, space and convenience sake it is acceptable. If you can understand it through context and is only used in informal conversation I believe it is perfectly fine.
I LOVE this one, but I'm pissed off by the fact that most people are assuming it is a guy writing to a girl. GUYS ARE STUPID, TOO! A hell of a lot of people, in general, are stupid lately. The world needs to brush up on grammar and general knowledge.
ewe all our to silly. you're mothers wood bee a shamed too here that your all more aliiterate then uh few nites in a dual.
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
i hate grammar nazis.
i think the world would be better off with a few less english majors.
Grammar is the standard spelling, but grammer is acceptable.
10 55 . Y'all is a conjunction for you all. Grammar fail. // get called out.
hey 10:55, nice try with the grammar tirade, but you spelled "sophomore" wrong.
Ah. Same here I guess. We just don't have a name for it. Cheers
fuckity fuckity fuck fuck
This made my day. There's still hope for the world!
You may wish to exercise proper punctuation when you go off on someone for their grammar. The period goes within the parentheses, as in "you're not correct."
this girl is a super bitch
2:49, the British only put punctuation within quotes if it was part of the thing being quoted. I think it makes more sense that way, and apparently the OP does too.
One word: AWESOME!!!!!
Fucking frigid cunt.
haha 11:10, douchebaguette
GrammAr. For fuck's sake!
It's pretty hilarious that we have all learned proper English/grammar since the first grade, and people still get there, their, and they're wrong. Also then and than, also to, two and too. \nOh! I absolutely hate it when people say "I seen you today!" it's I saw you today!
English majors unite!!
So is this write? "I'm going to walk the dog around the neighborhood. I'll be back around the time some diner is ready."
It’s funny how all an English major translates to is a low paying job & a lifetime of acting condescending & cynical to the rest of the world.
The fact is, just as people sometimes judge each other by their appearances in face-to-face interactions, people sometimes judge each other by their use of language (face-to-face or otherwise). I do both, and think the OP kicks butt.
Facebook status? Check. Done. Awesome. Love you, OP.
12:46 (2) you are probably the coolest person ever for posting random floyd lyrics...
* but if, not burbif
Your not kidding! You're English is excellent!
i sent my ex a text that said "if you want YOUR dick in me again, YOU'RE going to have to learn what a fucking contraction is."
