Many of you will know that I abhor misuse of the apostrophe. Well, today I saw gross misuse of a comma.

Painted on the side of a lorry was "JCB,s and Tipper,s for hire".

I'd like to find whoever did that & poke them in the eye with a sharpened Eskimo grandmother.

Is that the worst example ever of appalling punctuation? Or has anyone seen anything worse? (Is that possible?)

When I was in my local cafe today, I noticed that there were a lot
of possessive apostrophes in the wrong places.

Coffee's
Sandwich's
Baguette's
Omelett's
Tea's

Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.

There's a market stall here that uses greengrocer's apostrophes on all the vegetable's - except where they are probably needed: Local King Edwards.

I've recently seen people use multiple commas,, and I thought that rather bizarre,, especially when,,, commas aren't,, even,, required in the first place,.

I remember being asked to find an 'everyday' example of incorrect grammar for homework in high school. Having not done it by the next class, I quickly scanned the fire evacuation plan on the classroom door and found four. :)

Eats, Shoots and Leaves is an awesome book.

Perhaps the owner is so used to his plant being turned upside down by inexperienced drivers that he thought he would make the point in his punctuation. Also, as Mrs Global Awareness, the term Eskimo annoys me. Please call them inuits.

While the term Eskimo might bother people It's far from clear that Inuits is any better (and note the capitals since we are discussing that sort of thing).
Surely the important bit is sharpening, rather than mislabeling, their Grandmothers.

The station name, King's Cross, is seen spelt both with and without an apostrophe:

King's Cross is the signage used in the Network Rail and London Underground stations and on the tube map.
The official Network Rail webpage uses the "King's Cross" spelling.
Kings Cross is spelled without apostrophes in National Rail printed Timetables.

It has - either singular possessive (Mother's) or plural possessive (Mothers').

I don't get the point either way!!!

Anyway, my son is a punctuation snob and goes around shouting at shop owners and pouting at pub owners for their shoddy apostrophes. I think he is Beaver's love child, although I think I might have remembered something like that. Is there any cure for his punctuation Tourettes. If he shouts 'apostrophe moron' one more time well I'll........

rosalind, i think you mean "the tube". The Tube is the train service that serves London, as for the london underground and it being a secret movement! You are all wrong, it was a band from the 80's.

Since when were London Underground a band?  [???]  Are you, perhaps, thinking of The Velvet Underground?

No apostrophe in "its" when it's used in the possessive case, please.

...that serves London, as for the london underground...

There should be a full stop after "London" and "as" should therefore be capitalised.

I notice that nobody has said that I am wrong in saying that the London underground were a band, and not a transport system or secret movement. All you are doing is using avoiding tactics, such as pulling rosalind up on her awful grammar. Although I have to say, I hate it when people use multiple ?'s and !'s.

ever seen people type like this with no punctuation whatsoever geez its so annoying you cant even tell where the sentences begin and end you have to guess what the meaning is it surely cant be that difficult to throw in a full stop here and there even if use of other forms of punctuation is beyond the offenders abilities [big gasp of air] but i think what makes it more annoying is when they ask you a question minus any question mark expecting you to realise its a question and you need to stare at the block of senseless text for some length of time while deciding whether or not you were being asked something and were required to answer isnt that annoying i think it is

You misspelled it - it's G-E-N-I-U-S genius.

So it was misspelled and the correct spelling is above in MY post, herein quoted. The punctuation of my post did also have a mistake BUT NOT THE SPELLING!

The correct punctuation is:

"You misspelled it - it's G-E-N-I-U-S. i.e, 'genius.' "

If you do not have the mental capacity to follow a discussion, I'd suggest you find an alternate way of having fun - say swimming though the turbines at a hydroelectric plant. You'd bloody well enjoy that - at least the blood part.
