Lamenting my plain mobile phone which does not have photographing capabilities

So I couldn't actually take a photo of this sign at my local Burger King:

How many ketchup's would you like?

It was not a handwritten sign, but a sticker on the sliding window. That means someone mass-produced these signs. Does your Burger King have one? Let's complain.

So is that like grammatically incorrect or something?? :)

At least they are trying to be nice and make sure your ketchup needs are being taken care of!!

I can't believe they let that through all the proofing that those companies have and still let it go to print. I'll complain with you if you want.

The ketchup doesn't have anything, so it can't be in the possession of the ketchup! Who's to fault?

You are oh so correct. I shall complain with you as well. I too was lamenting my plain mobile phone this morning when I saw a rather large women walking across the Wal-Mart parking lot in a rather small bright purple velvety-suede jumpsuit looking thing. I totally needed a picture of that.

Basic grammar is so lacking in today's society. Heck, basic PROOFREADING is old fashioned. I can't tell you how many times I've caught misspellings on the news crawls on TV. No one cares anymore. So sad.

Yes! CNN is the worst with their spelling! Like, they honestly don't have the time to proof before posting it for the world to see?

So, Amanda Sue, what'd you get to eat and how many ketchup's were required?

It's amazing how much of that sort of thing one see's all over the place. What really get's me is the people who put an apostrophe on all their word's that end in S. You know, just in case.

But the worst offense is its'. We have big TVs at work with news and company information, and there's one message that talks about a resource that the company provides for its' employees. Every time I see it, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.

When has it become to hard for the window worker to just ask if you want ketchup?

This is my biggest pet peeve, along with "your" instead of "you're" as in "Your kidding, Amanda, Burger King had those sticker's printed and placed on there window's?"

(There instead of their, I know, I know. I want to scream about this all the time!!)

Oh! and, "Do you want to go with Linda and I to the movie?" - It's not "I" it's ME!!!!

Okay, I'm finished. For now.

amanda, perhaps i will go through a drive thru and take a pic for you. and then you can frame it as a little momento of grammatically-challenged corporations.

OK, Let's remember:
At some fast food chains, they use images of the cup sizes to tell the servers what size drink they're filling, instead of the words "small," "medium" or "large."
Just a thought.

ketchups still does not need an apostrophe! a picture of ketchup does not need an apostrophe either!
