I never, ever had any issues with Their, There or They`re. I always have issues with effect and affect though.

"I don`t know you so it isn`t an OBVIOUS joke nor is there a sarcasm font. Also there are a lot of idiots on the internet so how am I supposed to know you are not one of them?"

DUDE. Did you look at the content of the post? It is about the misuse of their / there.

@HolyGod, I don`t know you so it isn`t an OBVIOUS joke nor is there a sarcasm font. Also there are a lot of idiots on the internet so how am I supposed to know you are not one of them?

Just discussed the meaning of "help" to a foreign national. At the end, he understood help, helped and helping. I felt proud, but he looked bewildered. When I asked if he had a question, he said "so, a helping of potatoes?"

MarthFador and HolyGod underestimated the stupidity of the Interwebs by assuming we would all get the joke. ;)

I think the point is that they`re is a comma after the "no".

"@HolyGod and 5Cats.. Gerry1of1 is correct in his statement "This is why parents embarrass their kids". As the parents have ownership of the kids, you only use "there" to name a place, a thing or the existence of something. "

NO. F.ucking. S.hit.

Look at the subject of the post.

I was making, what I THOUGHT was a fairly obvious joke.

However it somehow triggered a 3rd grade english lesson.

She should just watch this little youtube series and she`d know the difference.

There/They`re/Their

There - Use when pointing out a direction: "It`s over there." or to call attention to something: "There it is!"

Their - use when referencing possession: "It`s their cat."

They`re - A contraction of "they are": "They`re going to the store later."

If you can`t replace it with "They are" then "they`re" is the wrong use and leaves on of the two. All you have to remember is that "Their" is possessive and "There" is directional (or to call attention).

The upside of posting such inane comments on a social network, is at least she is likely to have been corrected.

"This is why parents embarrass *there kids."

@HolyGod: Nice one! And no, I think @Gerry1`s reply is sarcastic... I hope so at least!

@Patchouly: I know! I think I was in 7th grade when a substitute teacher taught us PROPERLY what the proper usage was.

Anyhow: It`s like when your child gets a job at McDonalds: The family tradition continues! :-)

1 Use there when referring to a place, whether concrete ("over there by the building") or more abstract ("it must be difficult to live there").

2 Also use there with the verb BE (is, am, are, was, were) to indicate the existence of something, or to mention something for the first time.
There is an antique store on Camden Avenue.
There are many documents that are used in investigations.
There is a picnic area over here, and a monster and a campground across the river.
"I see there are new flowers coming up in your garden." "Yes, they are the ones my grandmother gave me last year."
3Use their to indicate possession. It is a possessive adjective and indicates that a particular noun belongs to them.

My friends have lost their tickets.
Their things were strewn about the office haphazardly.

"there" is a direction.

Used in a sentence "Over there"

Sorry HG but I disagree. I believe "their" is the correct usage ;

"THEIR" determiner, possesive pronoun: their; possesive pronoun: Their determiner:

1. belonging to or associated with the people or things previously mentioned or easily identified.
