    In their defence, it's most likely a teenage casual who has never claimed to have a superior knowledge of punctuation.

    The ones who really grind my gears are those who are responsible for professionally prepared signage, publications, packaging. Like the Woolies apples. Le sigh.

    When using plurals that end in 's', then you would put an apostrophe at the end of the word ie my girls' Barbie, as my girls's Barbie is awkward.
