Not sure which thread you are talking about. Smile
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

I often access the Café from my phone. That said I've never found using the phone as an excuse for poor spelling. You can read through and correct your post if you really care.

Although I find it annoying to see people insert superfluous apostrophes in plurals, it's just plain weird when they write a single sentence with more that one plural, some of which contain the offending punctuation, and others of which don't.

Recently on the radio I've heard a commercial for a plumber in which the spokeswoman (probably an actress portraying a woman with a clogged drain, not an actual clogged-drain-owner) wonders aloud why she can't get a pumber to quote her a price for clearing her drain over the phone.

I wasn't even aware one could clear a drain over the phone. I should think it would be quite expensive.

There's a store on Chapman advertising two products, both of which appears twice on the store's sign. One has the apostrophe (twice), and the other doesn't. No apparent reason.

Then there is the nonsensical turn-of-phrase; for example, "for all intensive purposes".

I have an acquaintance who oft says, "every so once in a while".

And the ubiquitous "would of", "could of", and "should of".

I just encountered a new one: "once and a while".

Merriam-Webster claims that that's a "humorous euphemism for 'regardless'."

Humorous, indeed!

Here's one I see nearly every day on the Café- posters writing "preformed" when they mean "performed."

Do they consider themselves to be preformers? And, if so, does that mean they do a lot of pre-show work?

Just saw another post in which the writer refers to a point made earlier as being "mute."

That's one I see a lot. Since I doubt that things will change, my objection is probably moot.

A mute point? I'm dumbfounded.

Would everyone prefer no communication rather than one with grandma and spelling errors?

I loved my grandma and was more than willing to endure her spelling errors.

Recently I've come across a lot of examples of "everyday" when the writer means "every day".

I also got a notification from Facebook recently that one of my friends posted a snapshot of this:

A best friend won't
agree with you to make
you happy. If anything,
they'll say what needs
to be said, no matter if
you wan't to hear it or
not.


Sigh.

I'm more dismayed by the subject-pronoun disagreement than the apostrophe. Smile

Surely you wouldn't prefer he'll/she'll.
