Learn About It

There's an episode of some TV show in which the main character is jealous of a woman who is dating her old boyfriend. Then, she receives a card from her that says, "Sorry I couldn't be their"...and the last line of the episode is something-along-the-lines of, "Why should I be jealous of her? She's an idiot!"

Lately, I've noticed how many people confuse these homonyms:
Too, To, Their, There, They're, You're, Your

It drives me crazy...
And, in my arrogance, it makes me feel so good about myself.
