Criminal Sentence 544: Aaah!

From a book I'm reading:

"You're dad told you about me, right?"

I'm definitely complaining to "you're" dad! He--"your" dad--will be very upset to see you misuse this word!

I had to pass a very basic grammar test to get my job. It was questions like this. I've since moved on from that administrative role, and there are people applying for the same job i used to have who CANNOT PASS THE TEST. As in, my company screens applications, brings them in, they fail the test, and then have to start over with a new applicant.

What I say to that is:
Your kidding me!

(kidding! I know it's you're)
