I wish people would stop saying "Wal-Marts" and "Krogers" It's Wal-MarT and KrogeR! There is no s on the end. People sound ignorant and uneducated when they say this. If it's a person, you can add an apostophe and an s on the name to show possessive tense. An example would be, Glen's towing or Foster's. Wal-Mart and Kroger are companies not people! English lesson over.

I agree with you on walmarts but disagree on krogers. It was founded by samuel Kroger so what would be the difference between foster's and kroger's. History lesson over.

Technically, it COULD be called Kroger's, but it's not. Read the sign! It says "Kroger." Lesson in the obvious over.

Just because they say "Kroger's" on the radio doesn't mean it's correct. I've seen ads on TV where people prounounce Washington "WoRShington."

You sound a little preoccupied with something so trivial. Congrats on having a life that something so unimportant is meaningful.Hopefully someday my life will settle down and I too can complain about someone looking uneducated.

im with you it boggles my mind why people bitch about things so trivial. its not like writing the pres. a letter its a forum for gosh sakes so who cares as long as you can understand the meaning of what one is saying

You didn't double-space after the period after meaningful.

I wish people would stop saying "Wal-Marts" and "Krogers" (need a period)It's Wal-MarT and KrogeR! There is no s (should be "s") on the end. People sound ignorant and uneducated when they say this. If it's a person, you can add an apostophe (spelling -apostrophe) and an s (should be "s") on the name to show possessive tense. An example would be, Glen's towing or Foster's. Wal-Mart and Kroger are companies
not people! English (Grammar) lesson over.

honest to god I mentally had just added the s to kroger. I tried to replay in my mind whether I said honey I am going to kroger or krogers and for the best of my recollection i am thinking i said Krogers. You have corrected my bad grammar. Thanks

so you're too good to post about someone pronouncing something goofy but you can post about how it bugs you that other people post about mispronunciation? hmmmmm?
