Hey Kids: Your on vacation!

Lois writes:

I don’t know where this school is, but I wouldn’t bother going back after vacation, if I were a student who wanted to learn anything about grammar, homophones and apostrophes, at least. I found the sign in a file of photos e-mailed to me by my ever-alert sister, who shares the gene for ferreting out apostrophe and other abuses in the English language.

Someone should start a your/you’re blog like this one. This kind of abuse is everywhere!

Oh, this would be -such- a perfect opportunity with a student with a can of red spray paint…

I agree. I (begin italics) am (end italics) traumatized.

I want to cry
If that were my school … I probably would cry. And also leave.

I correct signs every day at school, but never by teachers. Apalling.

Superstitious fundelicious- I’m going to have to agree with you 100%.
The your/you’re mix up drives me absolutely insane.
And no wonder no one can understand that you’re is a contraction and your is possessive… The schools can’t even get it right!!

Shame on them!

Wait… my on vacation? As opposed to my off vacation?

This is so sad. I can’t even think of anything clever to say. It is almost traumatizing.
