Thank yew for correction me
That's all spelling though.
There such good people
Im sorry for being stupid but what's is the mistake made in u/Grammar_RepairMan first comment.
I mistakenly forgot the apostrophe in “people’s”
Have you thought of creating a new subreddit, call it something like IWILLFIXYOURGRAMMAR, and then we can run our grammar questions past you.
Or don't, and just live for the grammar correcting that you find in the wild. : )
Would it actually be peoples' in this context, if you consider it a plural possessive? People's makes me think of belonging to a people (ie. a cultural group).
People is already pluralized so the apostrophe is before the s
You know, that one always gets me. Another one is people whose names end in S. Like Jesus. Is it "Jesus's water bottle." or "Jesus' water bottle."? And should I have used periods there?
Jesus’ water bottle, although it’s still pronounced as if it were jesus’s
Good to know! While you're here...you said the possessive of people is people's because people is already plural. What about plurals that end in s? Like if you wanted to say something belonged to a couple of families. Would you say "Those families' whatever."? I guess what I'm asking is, is the general rule here that if the word you want to use is plural, is it always s' or are there exceptions where s's is used?
Sorry I’m late on this, but there is never a situation with s’s. If it ends with an s or is already pluralized, then it just has the apostrophe sitting at the end.
Great, thanks! I am fairly confident that I use proper grammar most of the time (autocorrect notwithstanding), but a couple things like that sometimes still get me crossed up.

Aww, how sweat
I can't believe how adorble this is. It's just.... unbelevable.
Spelling is not grammar though
That just add tear to my eyes
We, love you, grammar repairman!
