Day Off...ish

Tomorrow is my day off from my 'full time' job.  I can't wait.  I'm so fed up with this week, that I seriously can't take another day there.  I get one more day of subbing for a class I had a lot of fun subbing for today and then I have the afternoon off tomorrow.  And NO I am NOT getting called in, absolutely NOT!

I felt like a "grammar Nazi" today.  A couple of students kept misusing apostrophes.  First a student was trying to make a plural word possessive, but put the apostrophe before the "s".  Then the same student and another one RIGHT next to that student tried to make a word plural, but used an apostrophe to make it possessive.  These are Juniors in high school.  Seriously, what are they being taught anymore?
