Apostrophe Abuse Continue’s

In a previous post, I warned about the dread scourge of Apostrophe Abuse. Well, it appears (perchance “appear’s”) that the problem is still painful and pervasive, as evidenced by this writing gig listing from Craigslist for – of all things – a Proofreader. See if you can spot the Apostrophe Abuse – hint: check the title.

    Haha. I just got a job as a proof reader. That’s pretty funny. I hope that is just a creep trying to lure young writers into his basement.

    Crazy stuff, isn’t it squelsch? And I didn’t even catch the second error in this job posting until I re-read it. There’s a word misspelled in the body of the ad, too. They really do need a proofreader, like right now! 🙂

    Thanks for commenting!
