My favourite park's are car park's.

Why do people think that it is necessary to add an apostrophe before an "s" to make a word plural? Why?!?! Alan from Essex, England, sent me this photo that he took at the Rayleigh Rail Station:

Alan, who works as a taxi driver, told me that he was so disgusted by the sign that he sent a letter of complaint to the company that owns the car park. He even used the phrase "apostrophe catastrophe" in his letter! Way to go, Alan! The world needs more upstanding citizens like you.

Alan--please follow up to let us know if you received a response from the company. Most of us merely grumble at such assaults on punctuation, but YOU, very admirably, took action.
