An apostrophe catastrophe...on wheels!


Red Pen, Inc. reader VALERIE risked life and limb to take this picture. Here's her story: While driving to work this morning, this truck cut me off. As I made rude faces and hand gestures at the slack-jawed driver, I noticed the heinous apostrophe abuse prominently displayed on the truck. I risked my life to snap a photograph with my cellphone. I don't know which offends me more: the fact that he cut me off, or the improper use of apostrophes.

Thanks, VALERIE, for snapping this picture! Now you guys have been warned. If you see this truck out on the roads, stay away! Bad punctuation + bad driving = not a good combination at all!

LOL! I would have just given him the finger. How boring and unadventurous of me, haha! :)

I would have been pissed that he cut me off, and if/when I noticed the apostrophe catastrophe, I would be pissed at myself for, once again, not having my camera with me.

I keep telling myself I need to start leaving my camera in the center console of my car for moments just like this. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) I am always so focused on driving that I forget it's there anyway! :)
