Anonymass Tip of the Week

This reader really lets me have it. After saying I should be “kicked to the curb” (by the way, Ricki Lake called, she wants her talk show back) this reader gets upset because of an added apostrophe in a word and then puts added apostrophes in my name to accentuate the point. Only in the process, the reader manages to spell the word ‘doesn’t’ like this: odesn’t.

Listen, AnonymASS, I don’t mind being your punching bag for the hour, but at least get the spelling right when you’re criticizing someone for an error.

An excerpt:
“Her nametag says ‘Bet’sy Roth’stein.’ Because there’s never an ‘s’ that odesn’t require an apostrophe, right?”
