I’m endlessly annoyed by “ski’s,” but really, really annoyed that this store only abused skis, not snowboards. I’d pay good money to relive the interaction between sign maker and store owner.

No apostrophe with the special price on this package of alfalfa and radish sprouts. Maybe they have a special, deep-seated loathing for apostrophes. Ingles was founded by Robert Ingle, so yeah, it’s one of those businesses as well.
This is the Ingles grocery in Waynesville, NC. I mentioned it to a manager-type person and got the expected blank stare in return (which is always good for a chuckle later on).
