You’re Your own worst enemy

Student Edge, Student Edge. Not only do they have crazy terms and conditions, they can’t spell.

My most recent email from them boldly proclaimed:

YOUR INVITED TO VIP SALES!

That should be “You’re invited”. ‘Your’ indicates possession. ‘You’re’ is ‘You are’.

To their credit, did use ‘your’ correctly a few times, like:

Still waiting for your card???

Still waiting for that sub-editor, perhaps?

Blank Cheque, anyone?
