It's not *my* grammar problem. . .
Last night I had to go buy a charger for my phone because I left mine at my brother's and my phone was almost dead. So a nice young man helped me by finding me one of the old AT&T ones that were on clearance because of the merger with Cingular. I went up to the counter for him to ring me up and there was a sign in one of those clear plastic frames that said something like this:
"...if you don't feel satisfied that you're sales representative..."

"That's the wrong 'your.'" I said aloud, almost unconsciously.

When the salesperson looked at me blankly, I turned the sign toward him and pointed. "That's the wrong 'your.'" I said again. Surely they'd be grateful that someone told them and they could change the sign and not look like illiterates.

"Oh. I didn't make that, my manager did."

Right. Ok. Well, whatever then I suppose. If it's not "you're" mistake, don't worry about fixing it.
I shrugged my shoulders and took my charger and receipt. As I was turning to walk out the door he said,

"How many 'yours' are there anyway? Two or Three?"

I pretended I didn't hear.

    But they do.
