This tweet from @cassie_white gave me a sharp jab of empathy:
Lord, I know the feeling. For some reason people really want to put an apostrophe between a number and the 's' when forming a plural. If you're one of those people, please stop the madness.This #apostrophefail at my local @Coles makes me want to self-harm.
- With the vast majority of nouns, you form a plural by adding 's' or 'es' to the end of the word.
- The same applies when pluralizing numbers or years. Mad Men is about an advertising firm in the 1960s. Ben Franklin lived in the 1700s. A pretty girl in her 20s (or twenties) just started working here.
- At least 20% off 100s and 100s of products every week
