minor annoyances of life

horrible grammar
Originally uploaded by Liz Henry.

One is this sign, on a bathroom at Moomin’s school. I walk by it every day and the incorrectly placed apostrophe bothers me! It’s a bad example. And the teachers don’t seem to understand why it’s wrong. There should not be an apostrophe. If you were writing the words “the girls’ room” then the apostrophe would be after the s. But there shouldn’t be one at all, if the word is on its own. Oh my god, but it bugs me!

Tomorrow I swear I’ll take a blue sharpie marker with me so that I can furtively color in the offensive punctuation mark.

I’m cranky.
