i didn’t know either.
The second post reminds me of the innocent days prefacebook when i was having a party and some dumbass from my class turned up with a four pack a week early. my dad wad well pissed off being woken at 2am. And my aunt stayed for a week.
@11: While ambiguous, that part of the status message is gramatically correct whether she meant it as a possessive or plural. There are many cases where it is equally correct to use or forgo an apostrophe when pluralizing, including acronyms. The preference for excluding the apostrophe (which also happens to be my preference) is a relatively new thing.
@13 et al: I’ve never heard of BJ’s restaurant either, but it was pretty obvious from the context that it was a restaurant, friend’s house, ice cream novelty, or some other locally known item. I worry about those of you who think it needed to be explained that it was something other than a blowjob.
@Wrong: just to be clear, I picked up on the fact that the kid wasn’t really talking about fellatio. I just couldn’t figure out what she WAS talking about until I came here and someone mentioned the restaurant thing.
@18: What a load. Fact is you still don’t know because no one here knows what she is talking about. It COULD be a restaurant, but see #22, it could be something else. That’s why I offered several examples of what it could be. Way to miss the point.
I didn’t think it was obvious at all. My first impression was that BJ was a child or a pet. But it blows my mind that anyone could get so worked up over an innocent explanation directed at people who may not be familiar with an American chain.
