People who don’t know the difference between “there”, “their”, and “they’re”, how are you getting through life?

  1. I know the difference, I type on my phone and do it super quickly. I don’t care enough about a reddit comment I’m making to double check because.. who cares? There’s no consequences. So I move on.

  2. They’re isn’t really many problems caused by this but I do think people need to mind there business and realize that their’s no need to be so uptight about everything.

  3. This sort of thing used to bother me until i thought about it a bit more.

    Less than 30% of the worlds population speaks English, and of those it is not the first language for the majority. Of those where it is the first language, its generally caused by poverty and lack of access to education rather than a desire to stay ignorant.

    So when questions like this are asked it’s generally from a very narrow, privileged viewpoint.

  4. because first i spell it how it sounds “th-air” and when you use thair in a sentance its clear what thair thair talking about over thair. its not about knowing the difference its about the fact that we dont need different ones. tu is the same when used in a sentace it tu is clear what tu tu use even if you use it tu times tu.
