I've seen too many teens online mix up you're/your, their/there/they're, etc etc and they're English speakers and don't have dyslexia or any problems like that. It's SO annoying.

And what about people who abuse the apostrophe? Using it when they're not supposed to.

I'm not too sure about that chileno. And I'm not too proud
or too busy to tell you about it. So you're never too sure.
And it's never too late to learn.

two/to/too - too much
