What I see is many people using your for you're, and could of, should of, would of, for could've, should've, would've. I know that's what they sound like when we say them, but you should still know the difference. Didn't anyone pass high school English? And, while were talking about it, what's with the silent L?

Where did you learn to speak Engish?

My wife had her last contraction 37 years ago and I have forbidden ever revisiting that.

Oh! That is not what you meant when you proposed the dillema?

Oh wait... Meant? Or mean't?

Official answer...
I dont care.

I will do it as well.

Official answer two- she dont care neither.

And yes the touch screen technology do make it worser.

Still have scars on my knuckles from the nuns cracking yard stick across them.
Yes way back then if you wrote contraction's yes why yes that would happen. So if i start to write one there is a hesitation.
