Do you know your it's, its, there, their, they're?

Mari had a quiz today on her blog about your occupation. I was looking around and found this grammar quiz. Of course, I wouldn't have put it up if I scored badly, but... I love reading and I had a great English teacher in middle school. I would expect those of you who had the same teacher as I did, to do as well.


You Scored an A

You got 10/10 questions correct.

It's pretty obvious that you don't make basic grammatical errors.
If anything, you're annoyed when people make simple mistakes on their blogs.
As far as people with bad grammar go, you know they're only human.
And it's humanity and its current condition that truly disturb you sometimes.

I got an A also - 10/10 - but question #7 is technically incorrect for all of the. "It's neither here nor there" is using a double negative. :-) It should read "It's neither here or there" if you want to be grammatically correct. :-)

Proofing my comment - I should have gotten an F - What am I trying to write there? Weird!

I have gotten an A on this quiz. If you have not noticed, I am always grammatically correct on everything. I mean, look at this comment. (he he)

***You Scored an A***

Me too! I'm like you because I hate to see things spelled wrong...
However - I often screw up with my typing!

I think we're the same person! I'm a grammar nut. I have my highschool English teacher to blame! I can edit my posts for an hour, I'll bet. I can't stand the little mistakes that no one even notices! Or maybe that's not me being a grammar nut, maybe that's me being obsessive-compulsive and controlling??? :)

Okay, I got 10 out of 10, but I am awful at spelling. So, which teacher in our school messed up with me?????

Mari turned out really smart, but I failed in several areas, hmmmm, she must have gotten all the "good" teachers. Not fair!

Do you remember getting to school and running to see the list posted up on the window of the door that said which kids were in your class? Wow, that brings back a few memories from the past.
