At least that's what the email should have said....

Do we just accept that even a major company doesn't employ anyone in the creative team literate enough to not know the difference between its and it is?

    I'm a teacher and the amount of memos and letters that go round with incorrect apostrophes is astounding. (TA's is particularly common)

    Many MSE posters are a prime example....apparently 'would of' instead 'would have' is going to be acceptable as the English language has 'evolved'. Brought instead of bought will be next in that case I'm sure...I really do despair.

    I despair of the More card. When it was Match & More I got a fiver every other week when they dropped the Match it would have taken an age to reach 5000 points so just swapped to Aldi instead.

    Not my experience, I regularly get conditional spend coupons at the till - 3,000 pts when you spend £30.00, 4,000 points when you spend £40.00, even had 3,500 points for £30.00.

    Currently, a challenge where to shop - Sainsburys $40.50 off £30.00, Tesco £2.00 off £20.00, Morrisons 4,000 for £40.00, or Farmfoods £2.50 off £25.00 spend.

    It's been made easier recently, with the excellent bedding plants available - especially Morrisons.

    Think this is the 3rd Morrisons loyalty card in as many years.
    I had a black one... then a yellow one... now a white one.

    Rebrand identity crisis me thinks.

    The thing is although I cringe when I see "would of" on a public forum, I tut quietly about impending doom and move on. The people writing "would of" won't be writing missives or official mass mailings for huge corporations.

    Or will they?

    The rules for it's and its are so simple even a 10 year old can grasp it, which my kids did by that age.

    I still have to explain it to people at work (all adults), and feel like a colossal old fart when I do.

    I did spend much of the 2000s in a usenet group called alt.possessive.its.has.no.apostrophe though. Just proving the point above I suppose!

    BoPsie Morisons Bore card arrived safely. It will be an age before we spend £1,000 to get the voucher, as we only fill up every so often with it.

    Haven't yet received mine but I am delighted to say that on the mail I received the apostrophe was missing so it seems it has been corrected.


    I am wondering how many more times the name of the card will be changed before I reach my 5000 points.


    Never known a reward card to be so low on rewards!

    Nary a word of thanks to me from Morrisons, so as a show of my disdain I will from this moment always misspell them as Morrissons.

    See how they like them apples (probably flavourless and covered in chemicals).
