    I'm sure you're making a point; but I'm not sure what your point is...

    I think you need to get your head checked. You're not making sense.

    Re: Eats, sh*ts and loaves.

    Spelling/grammar errors do annoy me in general, but the misuse of your/you're bugs me far more than most others do - using apostrophes to pluralise things really gets me too.

    There's a pub near me which has a sign outside saying talking about the "wine's and beer's", and another saying "all major credit cards excepted" - shouldn't that be "accepted"?! I don't know if the signs reflect the quality of the pub....

    no Really, your not funny. I think the point is that some people dont no how to right properly and that can be a little bit annoying if your the sort of person hoo cares about grammer, or spelling

    I care, I really, really do

    They don't... there are some mighty fine pubs near me and none of them write properly. Maybe it's a sign of a good pub?

    Re: Eats, sh*ts and loaves.

    The thing which confuses me about these errors is that they're not hand-written on paper signs or anything, they're on the big boarding/fascias on the front of the pub, right by the name. Maybe the sign-writers weren't paid to think, just to write whatever they were given.

    Again on a proper professionally-made sign, a garage near me advertises that they sell strater motors - I might buy one, as my car would appear not to have one...
