I was very saddened when I received an email from one of my favorite fast casual restaurants, extolling their new “Half Pounder Monday’s” program (see screen print image at bottom of this post). Someone forgot that there’s no possessive apostrophe required (Monday’s) when we’re referring to number (Mondays) only.
I’ve been reading Lynn Truss’ famous book, Eats, Shoots & Leaves, over the last few days. This email from Tom & Eddie’s would just be her cup of tea.
A wisened editor or writer can be left shaken by these travesties–either with laughter or with tears! /rantover
