You're Registration Form FAIL

On the wild, wild web today . . .

"You're Registration Form has Been Submitted."


You'd think a big company that makes such wonderful eyeglass lenses would be able to hire an English major to catch things like this.

Judging when to use "your" versus "you're" is so easy that it makes this error all the more grating. "You're" is a contraction of "you are." If you can't substitute "you are" in the sentence, then the word you're looking for is "your."
