Your/You’re confusion: You are Upgrade!

I was at the Solomon Pond Mall in Marlboro, MA, to try out for Wheel of Fortune (didn’t make it!). Waiting in line, I snapped a pic of this handmade sign at a Verizon kiosk in the middle of the mall. You are upgrade! It reminds me of “I am Error” from Zelda II.

  1. If there were a t-shirt that briefly explained the difference between "your" and "you're", I'd buy it! It's been the most common error I've seen anywhere in the past couple years. Keep up the great work!

  2. radiojoe, there is indeed a t-shirt. It may not be exactly what you're looking for, but it works for me. 🙂 Although when I posted it on my Facebook profile, I don't think anyone got the double entendre. Ooh, doublescore, the tee is on sale right now! 🙂

  3. Only difference is in Zelda II, the guy’s name is Error, so the sentence is grammatically correct, although initially confusing.

    The sign is just grammatically incorrect.
