Anyone else ever get P.O.'ed when people seem not to know any rules of grammar? Please give examples.

You mean like a sign in Food Lion (yes! let's name names!!!) saying "Banana's 58¢/lb."? And it wasn't handwritten, either. It was machine-produced.

Why does a banana own 58¢/lb.? That's what I want to know.
