Believe you can and
your half way there
There was a manager close by directing some members of staff in the business of filling shelves. I took one of these gems over to him and asked:
‘Are you actually selling these things?’
I pointed to the word ‘your’ and awaited a response. It took a while but it came eventually.
‘You mean it should have an apostrophe?’
‘And an e.’
‘We just sell ’em, mate. We don’t design ’em.’
I decided the conversation had run its course and left it there, but you know what? It’s one thing seeing ‘your’ for ‘you’re’ written by ignoramuses on YouTube, but to see it set in stone (or plastic to be precise) and sold in a shop is something else entirely.
