I'm such a Grammar Nazi. I hate it when people misspell words or short hand type. It's not "u" it's "you." I also hate when people get You're and Your mixed up.
I am going to your party (right)
I am glad you're home (right)

You're dog is nice (wrong)
Your really nice (wrong)

Your means to own something. It's yours. You own it. You have it.
You're means YOU ARE! You are pretty. You are smart.

You're cool (You are cool, right)
Your dog is small (you own that dog, that dog is yours, right)

You're hair is long (you are hair is long, doesn't even make since. Wrong)
Your being mean today (you own being mean today. What? Totally wrong)

See? It isn't that hard! I may be only 14, but I'm all for grammar. Now, don't even get me started on They're, There. and Their

YES! I too am a grammar nazi and what I consider to be functional illiteracy abounds. It amazes me all the time that seemingly functional adults walk around unable to form a complete and coherent sentence. <br />

Once, in a pathetic act of desperation, I signed up to an online dating site. After my sixth message of "your cute", I deleted my profile. <br />
