Dear viewers, I apologize for interrupting our programme but I have a breaking punctuation rant.

The little guy up there is one of the most misused and abused creatures that have ever lived on any keyboard on earth. 

“Photo’s from Cairo!”, an expat blog proudly announces.

“To all my children’s teacher’s” an angry parent prepares to vituperate.

“Cabbage- it’s proven benefits” (sadly, none of which seem to include a better grasp on punctuation) 

Have mercy.    

The apostrophe is not just a bizarre little comma that goes before an S like soup before the main or clouds before the rain. Nope. It lives its life to show a possessive or a missing letter.  

Sorry to be such a pedantic pain in the ‘S but this really get’s on my nerve’s:)!
