Average: 3.5 (24 votes)

I wish I didn’t have to sit next to you all day.”Your is a possessive pronoun and should be followed by a noun:‘Your car, your phone…’One common mistake is to say, ‘Hope your okay’.It should, of course, be, ‘Hope you're okay’.Have you got it? Then, try these...only use your or you're
