Ducky's guide to Your and You're... for those who struggle a little, secretly.

OK, sometimes it's typos... but some people genuninely seem to struggle with this, although it's quite simple. There's no need to know about "posession" and "contractions", like they'd have you believe at school.

REPLACE THE "YOUR/YOU'RE" WITH "YOU ARE" AND SAY IY OUT LOUD. If it makes sense, use "you're" and if it doesn't make sense use "your". Simple, eh?

Examples...

YOU ARE going out tonight.
That works. You're going out tonight.

YOU ARE going to spend the night in Misc.
That works. You're going to spend the night in Misc.

YOU ARE black gerbil1.
That works (even if you aren't him). You're black girbil1.

YOU ARE handbag.
That doesn't work (unless you're a user called "handbag"). **Your** handbag.

Now go in peace and be, erm, peaceful.

ur mad

Ducky mentioned black girbil 1, not Black Gerbil 1.
The real spelling is actually black gerbil1, although Ducky probably spelt it wrong intentionally to avoid copyright issues.

He's a cult character. A little bit like Thunderbirds and Tin Tin.

Nah. He just wanted to make you feel important and have your input.

Hehe. Anyway, I'm out to Iceland because I need prawn rings, some southern-fried chicken and some Findus Crispy Pancakes (seeing as though Findus has gone bust and I won't ever get them again).

Play nicely whilst I'm gone. Please. :)
