Only another apostrophe mistake.


Why, sure, I'll move my car so that an Employee's Only can have this space. But only if you tell me what exactly this Only is and exactly how it can be in the possession of said employee.

This cute little apostrophe, placed between the end of the word employee and the s, indicates that the word that comes after it is a thing that is possessed by the employee. But the word only is an adjective/adverb/conjunction...and can't actually be possessed by...well...anything.

JUSTIN L is awesome for sending me this apostrophization snafu!
