The English major in me is cheering…

Thanks to Baby Got Books for sharing this!

    Thank you for putting that out there in the universe. I teach English, and improper use of apostrophes, commas, and semicolons is acceptable for English learners, but not for people who went through an English-speaking school system. Apostrophes should never be used with plurals but people don't seem to understand that. And don't get me started on people who say "If I would have been there…"Thanks for putting up with my little rant!
