Errors from floor to ceiling...



Somebody here needs to get some punctuation prowess:

1. Normally, I see apostrophes being placed where they shouldn't be. Here, there was one that should have been placed, but wasn't. "We beat all competitors prices" should have an apostrophe after competitors. (In the competition of who can punctuate the best, this store got shut out!)

2. When a sentence begins with "why," it's usually a question. Questions don't end with exclamation marks. Simple as that. However, something like, "why, you're really stupid, floor people!" is perfectly correct...and valid here.

1. Normally, I see apostrophes being palced where they shouldn't be.


I'm as much a Grammarphile as you ;-).
