Grammar and Punctuation Police!

Quote

I know, I know. I hate the Grammar Police. The people who “walk” up behind you online and correct every little mistake. Sometimes we have bad days. I often get annoyed seeing their, when someone is referring to a place there (adverb) or they’re when someone means their. For instance: Their going to the club wouldn’t be grammatical because their is possessive. Instead, you would write: They’re going to the club. They’re is a contraction of the words they are.

I know my grammar is not always up to par, but I’m trying!

I will add my list of helpful Grammar tips on this post. Happy Simming!
