More School Abuse

These two restroom signs are courtesy of Shruti, who is depressed that they were displayed

at a local elementary school in Bear, Delaware. It’s just spawning future generations of serial apostrophe abusers.


Since each restroom is apparently only for one particular boy or girl, I wonder where the rest of the children go?

"Sadder" actually is a word. The use of either "sadder" or "more sad" would be appropriate.

Actually, boys’ or girls’ would be OK, I’m not quite sure that the previous comments by So far or Kerry acknowledged this fact.

Kerry says:

This may be a stretch, but do you think they are trying to shorten, “girl’s,” as in “The girl’s bathroom?”

I remember the middle school to which I went had signs that said Boys’ and Girls’.

What’s even sadder is that the apostrophe abuse is there in the Braille. Now the visually impaired can join in with the apostrophe abuse fun too!

Maybe it’s a snotty private school where each child has their own??? :)
