Hahaha. My foreign relatives are constantly asking me about these inconsistencies. English has so many exceptions to rules it's ridiculous. English is a very hard language to learn, I sympathize with those trying to learn it!
I know the technicalities. But, I still think it's funny, our English language.

I hear ya, Sabrina! We have there, their & they're. We have to, two & too. We have I before E except after C and any oher time we feel like it. I could go on & on. We have drought where the "gh" is silent & draught which is pronounced with an "f". But, who knows why the difference. LOL. I speak 7 different languages (lived around the world). And, I've been told by all other countries, that the English language is the hardest to learn.
