One of these men is probably my boss.
This conversation actually happened.
60 year old partner at a law firm: "There" is spelled t-h-e-i-r. You keep misspelling it." *Points to sentence that beings There are . . .*Me: "That's one way of spelling it, sure."60 year old partner at a law firm: *Gives me a weird look and walks away.*
It took me several minutes to realize that my boss clearly thinks that their, there and they're were involved in a Highlander/Thunderdome style deathmatch, in which three words went in, but only one word came out. And that victorious word was "their".
He gets paid 1,000 times what I do.
