More than likely it was a bad English translation. I think Shad is based out of Spain.

Me too. If they can't spell brake light correctly, what else don't they do right. And their Contact Us page does not work with my iMac - nothing happens when I press the 'Send' button. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!

And back to the topic ......

1.The use of the preposition to is unnecessary.
2. Misspelling the word you and shortening it by one letter accomplishes nothing.
3. A waste of letters, their is the correct spelling to show possession.
4. Everytime is supposed to be two words.

We uns down south no more 'bout speekin Anglish then eny uv you Yankees! We dun larned lots uv good stuf by the time we uns gratchooate thu thurd grade! As fer as fixin posts, well dadgum! I got a fins down here to keep the kaws in that alwaz needs fixin! U all kin werk on thu gate whil u is heer!

LOL.....is it uns, younses, yuns, youenses, you'all, y'all....I mix it up every...space...time. I purposely put all versions of "theres" in there, but I am well aware of the correct their (to show ownership) to use in that case...I was being whatchya call, sarcastic, dontchya know. I'm so confused with this thing we call english.

Nah, Google will do translations for you. It's free. Only problem is you have to use the "proper" form of the language.

...and in your case, we understand. Go ahead, I won't correct you.

Leinadeugal, just stick to your french/english. You'll do just fine here. Some of us have some terrible habits with our english language, (speaking and typing) and you'll go crazy trying to figure it out.
