Rowing Across The Ocean

Scott's Tip Of The Day: An American, Katie Spotz, intends to row a boat across the Ocean for charity. Here's an idea. Why don't you get a job, Katie? Then donate some of your salary to charity. About 50 some odd people have tried this and failed. You know what that means? Coast Guard Rescue. You know how expensive that is? You're attempt to earn money for charity ends up costing the United States money and resources that could be put to much better use than rescuing you. We have a pretty big deficit you know. So why don't you grow up, stop with the row boat nonsense and get a job?

The other alternative is we could just let her drift away and pay no attention to her unless she comes back...

Hi Scott-

I do work fulltime for a nonprofit and am on a leave for the row.

I have rescuers insurance too.

Thanks for your support.

Rick's tip of the day:

"You're" is a contraction -- a shortened form of "you are".

"Your" is the possessive form of "you", indicating something the referenced person has or something that belongs to the person.

In this case, the sentence that begins "You're attempt ..." is incorrect usage.

So why don't you grow up, stop with the negative nonsense and get behind people doing something with their lives?

Side-note to Katie: Good luck, and good for you!
