You have lost your punctuation privileges.

Ok, that's it.

If you don't know what an apostrophe is for, you are ordered to cease using them.

And before you waste the energy to tell me I am an elitist hypocrite, be advised...I already know. I knew before you did because I'm better than you.

By the way, you can find this punctuation abomination as well as many more at HomeGoods.

If you need me, I will be filling my afternoon looking for semicolon opportunities in Domestics.

God, I hate when people misuse apostrophes.
Or when they don't use them at all.

Elaine A. said...

Oy! I'm so proud of you for getting a picture. But so NOT proud of whoever approved that sign...

Hope all is well!

Beth said...

I'm with you on that! And with April on the spelling. Hilarious!

I don't expect everyone to be a grammar master, but if you're going to mass produce your product, perhaps a couple extra edits would be appropriate!

Crafty Christina said...

I know what my apostraphes are for. But I do misuse and abuse commas a great deal.

kisatrtle said...

Wha'at???

blueviolet said...

So did you ask for a discount and then buy it?

Jennifer Richins said...

I'm glad I'm not the only anal one who notices those things. I REALLY hate when giant billboards have grammatical errors on them. Is there really that short of a supply of editors? Or can companies no longer afford to hire them?

OK, well obviously you need to be English.. a couple of years ago a book about punctuation pet peeves became a London Times Bestseller!!

Eats, shoot and leaves. by Lynne Truss

Seriously the funniest book on punctuation and rants ever!! The author went around London adding punctuation to the movie posters for Two Weeks Notice!!

Now that is an obsessive elitist!!

Heathers here to say this bug's her too!

Bee and Rose said...

And I thought I was the only grammar elitist in town! I see this all the time especially on "hand painted" made in China home decor. My favorite from last Halloween was "Bewear of Ghosts"....idiots!

Em said...

Your my hero.

JHS said...

OMG, I see that done all the time. Even by lawyers!

And I had a secretary once who changed a brief I drafted without my knowledge. I signed it and allowed her to file it, only to later discover that she changed "cinnamon roll" to "Cinnamon roll." I was mortified. That's when we had a little talk about the scope of her duties being limited to correcting page breaks and other formatting issues, but NOTHING ELSE. Oi.

Take care of the skin in the course of many forms of cancer remedy. Since several malignancy therapies could cause alterations in your epidermis, you should take care of your skin. Work with a mild moisturizing lotion and stay hydrated. Prevent warm baths and constantly use sunscreen when outside the house. For more severe pores and skin troubles, speak to your doctor about possible therapies. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Illnerev5ss[/url]

Vets in the armed pushes should consider taking advantage of a VA loan when choosing their up coming house. VA personal loans provide no down payment alternatives, and all sorts of closing expenses can paid out through the vendor. You will find capped things over a VA loan too, and another seasoned can presume your loan when it's time and energy to promote. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Scan2122344d[/url]
