"A" vs "AN"
The show SHARK TANK is not the topic of this post. What happened on the most recent episode is. On this show, entrepreneurs present their business models to these five MILLION/BILLIONAIRES who then decide whether they will invest in their ideas.
I just watched Sunday's episode and saw this written on someone's presentation board: A Amazing Woman. Does anyone see anything wrong? "A Amazing"....? no that should be "An Amazing." I was appalled!
Another one that really bothers me is when I see "your" and "you're" used incorrectly. It is not "you're dog" it's "your dog" and it's not, "Your going to the zoo," it's "You're going to the zoo."
Please don't bombard me with comments telling me all the mistakes I've made in spelling and punctuation. I know I make mistakes, but not on national television when I'm wanting these rich people to invest in my idea. You couldn't find the time to proofread!?
How about, "it's" and "its?" You'll get a gold star from the teacher if you can show me how to use these correctly!
