Drop the apo'strophe's all you want.
It''s when you throw it in 'simply to 'say that an '"s" i's coming up that annoy's me.
My main complaint i's the people who u'se an 's to 'show plural's. Ignorant.

Wholly schmolley, that's awful! Not only abused apostrophes, but overuse of capitals (except for a couple of words), misplaced fullstops, poor spelling, wrong you're/your
But it sure is noticeable, so maybe done on purpose?

Where did you find that sign? I teach writing while my wife teaches reading, so we share our findings on a regular basis. She would enjoy this as much as I have.

I teach writing while my wife teaches reading
Sounds like a cunning plan to make students pay twice as much.

I've taught math, science, and Texas history and in each and every class kids complained about having to read. Signs like this one are the reason why everyone had to read and write in all of my classes.
