Pet peeve

There is one thing that I see more and more often that is really bugging me. The confusion of "your" and "you're"

"Your" is the possessive case of the word YOU: "Is that your car?"

"You're" is the contraction of the word "you are": "You're driving me to the store in your car."

Please do not confuse the two, it makes you look stupid.

Thanks for your comments and correcting smokinnova. That's what happens when you have a generation who's primary means of communication is texting......
