The Greengrocer's Apostrophe Strikes Again

Ah, it's a beautiful autumn day and what a lovely display at the local independent grocery store.


Good thing this common error doesn't actually irritate me anymore... just makes me laugh that each watermelon quarter has its very own $1.99.

The grocer's apostrophe - AT the grocer's! I love it. (And I did just re-read that sentence to make sure both those apostrophes were necessary. And they are. Phew!)
