Little Annoyances

Little Annoyances

Ain't much going on in this neck of the woods. Sleep's been rough the last little while. I'm getting grouchy, and sniping at little things.

Like what?

Like, when somebody writes a sign, and they try to make a plural by adding an apostrophe and an "s". I saw this the other morning at a fast food joint. A particular type of biscuit was on sale. Somebody had written on a dry erase board leading into the restaurant "2 sausage, egg and cheese biscuit's for 2.22."

I have written many letters, threatened many lawsuits. But they will not tear that Hardee's to the ground.

So today, I say if ya can't beat'em, join'em.

Today, all plural word's will be noted with an apostrophe. I guess this holds true only for all written writing's, but if you can find a way to denote your use of the apostrophe when speaking, more power to you guy's.

Also, when speaking in term's of the possessive, it is probably best to use another form. Instead of John's Toilet Paper, you might want to say That Toilet Paper that Belongs To John.

(Tommy has had little sleep. It is safe for him to say "I gots nuthin'.")
