Whose vs. Who's
Posted 15 November 2012 - 02:37 AM
Just a little education for those of you who may be a little confused, whether or not you are aware of it.
Who's: A contraction of 'who is'
Ex. Who's a grammar nazi?
Whose: A possessive form of whom.
Ex: Whose fault was it I became a grammar nazi?
A sentence using both: Who's sure whose briefcase it is?
It's similar to their vs. they're, and its vs. ut's respectively.
Knowledge is power.
Who's able to see the irony here?

You have no idea how badly I wish I could teach people their own language when they should already be proficient in it.
So. Fucking. Badly.
It's frustrating because I often have to read something several times before it makes any sense. Back up, re-read, WTF? Sometimes I just give up and move on.
Another thing: I don't give a shit how intelligent someone may actually be, if they're barely literate THEY APPEAR TO BE STUPID.
