[for the sake of anonymity & functionality, Michelle's last name is Flanders]
here's the thing: when you're indicating possession by a singular noun ending in "s", you still have to write "'s". it looks wrong, but i promise you, it's grammatically correct.Me: I hate you because of your away message.
h.g. wells's novel
michelle flanders's ghetto booty
i will fucking fight you about this issue, i'm not even kidding
Michelle: Haha. It's CORRECT.
Me: IF YOU QUOTE THAT GODDAMN STUPID BOOK ILL PUNCH YOU IN THE BABY MAKER!!!
Michelle: I feel like it's the exact same thing as someone saying "the sky isn't blue, it's brown". That's a completely incorrect statement, just like the statement "Michelle Flanders' boobs aren't breathtaking". Completely incorrect so I must argue.
Me: Yea, her boobs are saggy and boring. Snap.
Michelle: Also, "yeah" has an "h". Maybe you missed the memo. ::does a cakewalk::
Me: ...off a cliff.
Michelle: The apostrophe s is correct, so I suppose it matters not.
Me: You're vile. P.S. "Michelle Flanders' boobs aren't breathtaking". Nice putting the period in the WRONG place.
Michelle: I don't think you want to open THAT can of worms. Yes, that's right. Not kidding. I WOULD quote that goddamn stupid book, but... The putting the period or comma outside of the quotation marks is highly contended. I strongly feel that they belong OUTSIDE of the quotation marks; after all, I'm not quoting the punctuation. But that's more British frame of mind.
Me: YOU HATE AMERICA, TERRORIST!
Michelle: And yes, Lynne Truss of Eats, Shoots & Leaves fame would agree with me.
Me: She's. A. ::ponders actually using the word he hates:: ::does it:: Cunt.
Michelle: I prefer "C-U-Next-Tuesday".
Me: I do not.
Michelle: You wouldn't.
Me: Now that I'm full of hate & rage, I leave you.
