Incorrect spelling of "your" and "you're" used by illiterate people with the mental capacity of a toddler who can't be bothered to spend a fraction of a second to correctly spell words, refusing to take advantage of modern technology, social advancements, and overall ability to learn how to fucking spell words correctly. If they weren't sipping on three-fourths-sugar mixtures that they wrongly call "coffee" and taking modern technology for granted, I'd say they were trying to hold on to the middle ages before public education became a thing.
Mentally-disabled fuckwad: omg ur so stupid
