#7 looks like someone is using their names to indicate ownership of the business. If that's the case and it really is Chip's and Fishe's restaurant, then the sign is technically correct.

I can't stand people who should of known better then to use bad grammer.

This article has really upset me. I think my colon is about to blow. Or maybe I got diaeresis after eating a bad umlaut.

I am not seeing anything about the futility of space exploration.

Grammar Nazi's Hate Me

The perfect gift for annoying your English teacher or freaking out the school because it has the word Nazi in it.

I passed a grocery store today that had "PEACHS" on sale. It was very difficult to pronounce when I went in to ask where they were.

I forget where I saw this, but an apostrophe does not mean "Look out, here comes an 'S'!"

The awning on this building read "Glady's R. Wilson" etc. for years before it was replaced.

 #1, #2, #3 Unprofessional crap. You should be fired.

#4 Thi
's make's my brain squirm. I have to tear myself away, I can't sit here and keep trying to figure thi's out anymore.
#5 Crap.
#6 Entirely fixable. The kerning is perfect to grind thi
's out with a small tool.
#7, #9 Intentional.
#8 No, this one actually hurt
's.
#10 Someone paid money for thi
's. Someone else went through a whole production proces's to make this. WTF.
#11 I've heard plenty of the Irish making fun of u
's for being stupid. I'm sure you can think of something to say about thi's one. Go on, something about how dumb and loud and Texas we are...

The grammar error that really toasts my cookie is when people use quotation marks to mean emphasis, the same as underlining. Quotation marks used in that way generally mean sarcasm or irony.

Going to shop for meats at Stater Brothers makes me cringe; there's a big sign in the back of the meat department telling how its "professional" meat handlers are "expertly" trained to give you the "highest quality."

"Were number one" is legit. They just left out the "we."
