A+ Gifts, F- Grammar

Found this gem at a local candy shop today:

For those of you needing a refresher course in the difference between "your" and "you're", it's this:
Your = Belonging to someone. As in, "Mrs. Smith is your teacher."
You're = A contraction of the words you are. As in, "You're not very good with grammar and usage."

I asked the person behind the counter if they were wanting to give their A+ teacher an A+ heart attack by having that sign out.  They looked up, clicked their tongue, rolled their eyes and said something about sometimes wondering if their boss finished elementary school.

Yes, I love the English language and I am a staunch Grammar Nazi. Heil grammatik!
