The relationship-grammar test
An offended person is too bad at grammar to date
a non-offended person will thank you for the gift of bacon.
Okay, I get it…because it’s “your” and not “you’re,” the meaning of the statement has changed, basically stating “that is your fat” (the bacon) in a possessive sense. The idea is that if you’re grammatically savvy and would catch that subtle difference, you would not interpret it as an offense.
Proves that yes, it is important to use the right “your” words in a sentence and spell them correctly.
Realistically, though, I think even the grammar-savvy would still look at that and think its an insult at first glance, at least not without some additional context beforehand.
