Not my resolution, but this is one of my biggest pet peeves, if not the biggest. It’s basic grammar, something you’re taught at the age of 5,6,7. It’s not something that you can excuse with “Oh, I don’t write letters anymore.” or “Oh, my phone types for me.” When I see someone holding up a “Let’s go Giant’s!” sign, I want to reach through the television and smack that person.
To teach and/or kill every single person who incorrectly uses apostrophes.
People! It’s either plural or possessive! C’MON! How hard is this?
There’s an entire sign in the restaurant in my small, small hometown that has every single plural with an apostrophe. Basically it reads like this:
I shit you not.
We’re not coming upon the 2010’s. We’re coming up on the 2010s. See the difference? Learn it, live it, love it.
Kindred spirits, indeed :) I do not understand why some people find the apostrophe so complicated.
