Links and visuals illustrating an orthographic pet peeve.
Why the person who made this sign thought employees needed an apostrophe, but owners and operators did not, is beyond me.

Agh! I recently discovered this blog, and I want to thank you so much for what you are doing. I see misused apostrophes everywhere. I’m an English major, and it annoys me.
Ugh “over nite”.
And, wait, how is towing enforced?
They think “employees” needs an apostrophe because its singular form ends in a vowel. That error is becoming increasingly common.
Some of the worst grammar I’ve ever seen has come from English majors.
What I want to know is… how do any of these signs get professionally manufactured without someone correcting these errors?
