Oh dear, we can all forgive a little slip now and again, but to make this most heinous of all grammatical ablutions on a wall art site with the effect of repeating the offence over and over again in people's living rooms around the country? Totally unforgivable.

It's not bad to decide you're not going to marry her but only a fool chooses to throw away a possible shag because she doesn't know where to use apostrophes.
