For 14 years, a self-professed grammar vigilante has been correcting errors on signs in Bristol, England.
He goes out at night with a ladder and a special tool he designed that he calls an “apostrophiser.” He told the BBC, “This is a device that enables you to plant an apostrophe quite high up and get over any obstacles.”
The first sign he corrected was in 2003. “It was a council sign – Mondays to Fridays – and had these ridiculous apostrophes. I was able to scratch those off.”
Among the signs he’s fixed was a sign for “Amy’s Nail’s” which he called “gross”. “It was so loud and in your face. I just couldn’t abide it. It grates.”
He also fixed the sign for “Cambridge Motor’s”, and was even thanked by the owners after pointing it out.
Now, Twitter users, in a plea for help, are sending him pictures of more bad signs.
The BBC asked him if he thinks what he is doing is illegal.
"People might say what I am doing is wrong, but it is more of a crime to have the apostrophes wrong in the first place."
Its like he’s a hero. Sorry! IT’S like he’s a hero.
