It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Catastrophes

It's only mid-October, but I'm already sitting here in a fleece jacket, slippers, and a blanket, which might explain why I chose the following apostrophe catastrophe for today's posting.

Jami, from the Apostrophe Catastrophes Facebook group, had the misfortune of receiving this decoration as a gift. I think I would have preferred coal.

In case you were wondering, day's is the only error in this decoration. Till is a perfectly valid word.

Thanks, Jami!

There's no excuse for this sign (Congrats Jami)! They couldn't even say it's a misplaced apostrophe from till since it doesn't need one. The placement of the apostrophe almost makes it a double catastrophe with one apostrophe, which must be some sort of record!

Oh, and I have to say, it's boss's (or boss') day and the card going around my work has an awful lot of "your the best" on it! And this is why I'm in charge of the proofing I suppose!
