    Breaks - plural form of "break"

    Brakes - what your car uses to slow/stop

    There - used for location

    Their - ownership

    They're - they "are"



    Stop using them incorrectly. I'm fairly certain most of you at least made it through middle school, in which case you know this.

    Re: Lesson of the day...

    Don’t even get me started on this. I’m amazed at the number of posts I see that people didn’t proofread before they hit submit. It’s even worse with people who post using their smartphone. :dunce:
