I teach apostrophe's to my class at school. ROTFPML!!! (it was intentional!!)
I hate apostrophes. For some reason the children in school have an attack of the apostrophes and they put them in as many words as they can whether or not they belong!! I can guarantee that even after 20 minutes of teaching input using a variety of different teaching aids a child will still write "I can use apostrophe's correctly" as their title (despite it being on the board!)
Oh, and their, there and they're as well as which witch irritate me too!!
