This is hanging in the door of the TEACHERS’ lounge in Beanie’s elementary school. Those people really DON’T know how to use apostrophes, do they?
I wonder which teacher gets to use the lounge? Do they trade off? Where do the ones who are left out go to eat their lunch? Is there a point system? Oh! Maybe there’s a weekly lottery….?
Oh, and another thing? I’ve been listening to everyone on the news telling us how we’re in entirely new country as far as the financial and economic meltdown goes. If I hear one more person say we’re in “unchartered” territory, I may just pop a seam. Unchartered means “without a charter.” A charter is a document issued by an authority that creates a public or private corporation such as a city, college, or bank, and defines its privileges and purposes. What they mean to say is that we’re in uncharted territory – as in unmapped or unexplored.
