From a sign I saw at the hospital where I volunteer:
"You're attention please."
Is this sign telling me that I am attention? You are attention?
No!! It is a sign that needs an emergency intervention!
"Your attention please. Sometimes you need an apostrophe, and sometimes you don't. Thank you for listening."
