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.
11:17....no, hahahah grammer is just plain wrong....its grammar...
It's context dependent, 10:42. Also, some styles require different grammatical structure, like MLA, APA, etc.
11:09....it is actually spelled "grammar"....not "grammer"...jesus tap dancing christ
Thank you. Your/you're errors irk me.
BITCH!!.... No I am actually kidding that was really awesome! Good work!!!
11:01(1) admit it, you're not a real mexico
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.
marry me. even if you're a dude
"Keep refreshing the screen(,) guys(;)
Harumph harumph harumph....hey I didn't get a harumph outta that guy!
OP, where in the 919 are you located? I'm just curious. From one 919 grammar nazi to another, I salute you.
The National Enquirer... Wrong... No!!!!!!
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!
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.
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.
No, 10:56 does not win. 10:56 is an idiot. It's "other people's essays."
Another English major who appreciates this.
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,
Giving english lessons over text messaging is pretty lame. true statement, but lame.
Thank you! Someone finally made that distinction
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.
rabble rabble rabble...took our jobs...rabble rabble rabble
hahahahahahaha-- love whoever posted this.
greatness exist at the top of this page.
THANK YOU NORTH CAROLINA!
Whoever wrote this. I love you.
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.
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.
2.25 You represent what is wrong with the world.
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.
I love love love this.
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.
HAHAHA. Chapel hill NC..represent!
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.
There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
Are we in debate class?
The national enquirer is wrong. Bitch.
I am totally sending this message to my ex hahahaha
Your rite, peeple needz to speek's moor goodly in America.
There is nothing wrong with taking a little pride in the English language. However there is perhaps a problem with taking too much pride.
You may hate grammar nazis, but grammar nazis hate retards like you.
is this a dick measuring contest? You lose, 2 mm is last place^^^
Nice! Love it. I hate bad grammar and text speak. Good work OP. You're a legend. Your post is great.
Hahahahah this is amazing
Grammer always matters.
11:13(1) Hookd on fonix werkd fer me
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.
Your examples suck! Take a grammar class asshole!
Hell yeah, 919!! Southerners CAN spell/use proper grammar, thankyouverymuch.
My friend said he could see me saying this.
Wow. Was like three insults in one text. Best use of 160 characters ever.
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
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
Who's the grammer freak?
This person is a dick! I get the importance of grammar, but it's a fucking text message, not you mid term...relax man
A fucking men!!!!!!!
Agreed! Grammatical error suck donkey balls
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.
1:53....even if we did that we'd still have the same president
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.
You're examples are great!
Makes me proud to be a 919.
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!
I fkn hate when people don't understand the dif. Fkn americanized education:/
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!
You're supposed to put punctuation within the quotation marks, for the record.
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.
OP, you're the man. Even if you're actually female, you're still the man.
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...
People should also know the difference between 'who' and 'whom'
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
I say this all the time without the herpes analogy of course. Haha hilarious.
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!!!!!
It's txt'n. Grammer doesn't apply ass fuck!
It's grammar not grammer; spelling also matters.
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
masters in mathematics!!!!!! I bet the ladies go wild when you tell them that.
Thank you! Also, it's libRary. Not liberry.
I agree 1:53!! Whole heartedly!
I don't know about that, but if he's that involved he's definitely on the 6 year plan for graduating.
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 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.
i saw this on youtube a couple days ago
11:10(1), your syntax is bleeding. Better put a tampon in that asap.
It's actually y'all
Epic fucking win. Kudos to OP.
Gotta love the self-important Grammar Police.
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.
Too many fake tfln with herpes in them. Played that out real quick.
Seriously it's not that big of a deal people chill out, and smoke a blunt!
The National Enquirer said grammer, so I'm gonna go with that
That's (short for that is) harsh. I'm pretty sure, even with poor english, he or she got the message. Good Job.
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.
11:59, why? Seems odd. Where I'm from we all want to finish school...
I am in love with the person who sent this text.
Good Grammar and Spelling is HOT. 919 for the fucking win.
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.
I have a racist friend...she enjoyed this
'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.
the herpes analogy makes it! you are my hero!
You sir, are and idiot.
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.
2:49 who really gives a shit?!? Grammars a bitch anyways!
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 know 11:43(3) wants to play Dungeons and Dragons after school today. weeeeeee!!!!!
Awesome. Just awesome.
From the way the text reads, the period does go on the outside of the parentheses, he's ending his sentence, not the quote...
this person is my hero
Some folks have to work to pay for it, and others are just that dumb / have poor priorities.
The comments are great! Spent 20 mins just reading them ha
Thank you Raleigh, NC for that lovely grammar lesson.
Actually, the one that gets fucked up most often is there, they're and their.
Wow... And so many idiots can't fig"you're" that shit out. EFL...
i hate grammar nazis.
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.
Am I in an online english class, or is this TFLN?
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.
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).
Wow there's actually smart people in Raleigh! :-)
LOVE THIS! way to go!
11:15= "not a real mexico" funniest shit ever...ahahahahah
Whts an area code???
Did 11:50(1) just make a Blazing Saddles reference? If he did, 11:50 FTW
Ummm, I'm pretty sure that "like" should be "as".
Though you made some errors, good point! I hate dumb fucks who have no skills in the grammar and spelling department.
The Enquirer is the best source for accurate information, geez. Amateurs
And "a lot" is two words like "you make me want to fuck you a lot"
I love it!!! Thank you!!!
this is fucking funny. i enjoy.
^ above me is ignorant.
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
11:55--haha cool wHip
they're, their, there---another pet peeve of mine
I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Now can you show me where it hurts
3:36, agreed-- in this case, it definitely makes more sense to have the period outside of the quotation marks.
I have to admit this is my pet peeve as well... that and the their, their, they're misuse.
11:32 you're a raging douche
Fantastic text. Your/you're is one of my biggest pet peeves. How hard is it to add an apostrophe and an "e"?
This should have ended with "you're not sleeping with me because of your herpes."
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.
Way to go, OP, way to go.
feel thy weiner - ftw
I'd fuck anything especially stupid chicks...
Oh and 910 and 919 are the area codes for where I live!
I'm just gonna type something to see how many people will correct it.
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
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
I journalism, punctuation always goes inside quotation marks. That's not necessarily the case in other forms of writing. It often depends on context.
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)
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.
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.
Ah. Same here I guess. We just don't have a name for it. Cheers
this may be my favorite text ever.
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
hey 10:55, nice try with the grammar tirade, but you spelled "sophomore" wrong.
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.
The OP is my new hero.
whoever you are, you are my hero
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
Grammar is the standard spelling, but grammer is acceptable.
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!
haha 11:10, douchebaguette
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
This made my day. There's still hope for the world!
I love you so much this is freaking hilarious and sooooo true
Funny but you need to put the periods inside quotations
i think the world would be better off with a few less english majors.
Your mom has more to do with my cock, what a co inky dink. Beeeotch
type faster, that way you'll make more mistakes
GrammAr. For fuck's sake!
Fucking frigid cunt.
I want to have proper grammar's babies.
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
I'm so glad 919 finally represented with something good. Ty, whoever you are.
11:49, it's robble robble robble, hamburglar
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
This is awesome, my boyfriend is a 24-year-old grammatical moron. I sent him this.
hahah i love how all the grammar nazis are correcting eachother.
10 55 . Y'all is a conjunction for you all. Grammar fail. // get called out.
Hello... hello... hello
Is there anybody in there
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home
I'm 12 and what is this
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.
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."
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."
This is ridiculous. Everyone needs to kindly shut the fuck up.
One word: AWESOME!!!!!
fuckity fuckity fuck fuck
this girl is a super bitch
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.
English majors unite!!
Facebook status? Check. Done. Awesome. Love you, OP.
12:46 (2) you are probably the coolest person ever for posting random floyd lyrics...
and a pretty good indicator of your personality, preaching on TFLN^^^
* 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."
