Dont worry champ; Apostrophes r overrated as fuuuuuk

funny

It's not that hard once you learn its rules

like

Essential rule: apostrophes indicate possession, not plurality. The only be exception is the pluralization of single, lower-case letters.

Apostrophes go before the s on singular nouns and after the s on plural nouns. If the singular noun ends in s, don't add another s after the apostrophe.

helpful

Except in the case of it’s / its of course. Because it’s means it is, not possessive

Apostrophes’

Go back to school!

Apostrophes are easy for me it’s colons and semi colons

I use semicolons 24/7; this is because I have ADHD and am bad at formatting my thoughts

like

Use an apostrophe in a contraction to show where letters have been removed (you are = you’re, they are = they’re, it is = it’s, would not have = wouldn’t’ve — an apostrophe replaces any missing letters).

Also use an apostrophe to show possession with an s (the hat of Fred = Fred’s hat). If the possessing entity ends in an s, then the apostrophe probably goes after the s instead of before it (the house of the Williams family = the Williams’ house). This is also true of plurals (the house of the neighbors = the neighbors’ house while the house of one neighbor = neighbor’s house).

C1 Jones's can be used to denote a possession of sometime named Jones, but, to pluralize, it would be Joneses, I believe.

pls fix thx

If a cop knocks on your front door, you answer, they say there has been a complaint from a store owner that you took a knife from there store, is it true? And you say no, but I did take a mask. And then the cop leaves and you receive a citation in the mail from theft of under $200. 1. Should a lawyer accompany you to your arraignment? 2. As a lawyer what would you advise? 3. Does that mean after the cop took your statement did they go back to the store & ask the owner about pressing charges?

Having to act normally and care about your career growth during 1:1s with your boss when you know you’re leaving in a few weeks is weird. I like the guy and hate deceiving him like this but I also do not want to take any early breaks and “relax” at home. What’s the point?
