grammar

So I have a thing about people using apostrophes in the wrong places, and it's a pretty common problem. Anyway, we were at a friend's house on Saturday and I noticed they had one of those quote decals on their wall. I know they just moved in and haven't painted, so I assumed she didn't put it up. I asked, and she didn't, so I pointed out that it said

In this family we do I'm sorry's....

Um....nothing belongs to the sorry. Sorry. 

I know it's going to drive her nuts now bc it's on her wall...but c'mon, this means an actual company made something with a huge grammatical mistake and no one noticed!!

  • I am so with you on this, @queensteph17

    Hopefully she'll get rid of it soon!

  • That would bug me too.  Did she plan on keeping it?

     

     

  • I am such a freak about grammar so that would irritate me!  I absolutely hate apostrophes where they don't belong.  Oh, and people who capitalize words that don't need it.  Facebook posts make my blood boil most days!

  • I was at a restaurant the other day and they had "restroom's" painted in huge letters on the wall.  So embarrassing.

  • @Beebe918 ; I've seen that that too. I wrote a note on my check that night.

     

    I don't know if she can get it off the wall without painting, but I'm sure she'll try! I'm surprised she didn't catch it herself bc she's a teacher!
