I found a 1990 Honda Civic hatchback on Craig's List a few weeks back and finally was able to hook up with the guy today and take a look at it. It's in such good condition that McGyver is actually disappointed that there isn't anything that he will need to do to it. Bummer, let me tell you. But here it is :
Anyway, the guy was asking $2,000 but we offered $1,800 and he took it. We pick it up Monday! I should be getting 30 miles to the gallon next week! Yay! And for a while, we'll have 3 cars - ALL PAID FOR!!!
ANYWAY, on the way back from downtown, we pulled up behind some GENIUS in a sports car with the message
If you can read this then your too close
Now I am no genius. I'm pretty sure my IQ is nothing much above average. But it drives me INSANE when people screw up the words YOUR and YOU'RE. It's not hard...YOUR is possessive - "that is YOUR car". YOU'RE is the contraction that indicates "YOU ARE" as in "YOU ARE AN IDIOT".
And the fact that this idiot not only doesn't know the difference between YOUR and YOU'RE but put it on the back of his CAR just about sent me over the edge. It took most of the self control I could muster not to pull up next to him and tell him what an idiot he is.
I'm weird like that.
I'm on a few chat boards - mostly military spouse stuff - and the people on there who don't know the difference between YOUR and YOU'RE or TWO/TOO/TO or THERE/THEIR/THEY'RE (among other grammar infractions that irritate the you-know-what out of me) literally make my head hurt.
Everyone has their idiosyncracies. This is mine I suppose.
