They are; they're; there; their. English is a complicated language and our education system is doing a poor job of teaching it. Drives me nuts but I take a deep breath and keep reading.

Butter Bean, thanks for taking up the torch of grammar.

My pet hate is incorrect punctuation and the failure to use ‘TOO’ where needed. An object is NOT to soft, it is too soft.
I don’t know what’s happening with the English language, but reuse is incorrect, it is re-use.

Cheers.

OK fresh off the press. This sign is at the front of the largest supermarket chain in northern IN and southern MI. So they disenfect instead of disinfect? SO how many members of management have walked past this sign and either don't know or don't care? Dang, no spell checker in a Magic Marker!
