    Shouldn’t that be, “call u’s?”

    Between the post and the above comment, I about busted a rib! You guys are hilarious! (or I’m just really, really, r-e-a-l-l-y tired). Nah, you’re funny. Thanks for the laughs.

    Wow. I’m simply speechless at this one.

    This isn’t so much funny as just pitiful. I mean, these aren’t just a few mistakes, this person actually thinks that one is supposed to add an apostrophe when pluralizing nouns. This a beautiful example of the depths to which our education system has fallen.

    Our edumacation system is fine! Thankfully, they are teaching children “apostrophe before ‘s’ except at the end of the list.”
    Therefore, the Craigslist poster was correct in withholding the apostrophe from “curling irons.”

    At least it’s consistently wrong. :-(

    has anyone emailed that craigslist poster yet?

    Holy shite! This might be the worst one I’ve seen. The illiteracy of our country simply astounds (astound’s?) me.

    dishe’s!!! that one really takes the cake. i saw something that mentioned “life’s up’s and down’s, ins and out’s…” i mean, why is the “ins” the odd one out? how do people chose which ones to randomly add the apostrophe to? i just don’t understand!
