Went into sainsburys and noticed 2 different packs of carlsberg export, one priced £6.50 and one for £7 so of course i went for the £6.50. But it went through the till for £3.25. I went back and got another pack also labeled £6.50 and it was also £3.25 even though it has a massive label saying £6.50!

This was instore at Merry Hill, dont know if the £7 one works. Hope this helps someone!

Who's Miss Price ?



don't you mean 'whose'

well, you pick on the man who brings cheap beer you have to make sure you don't make the same mistake

nope, he means who's. It's a shortened form of "who is" hence the apostrophe!

hmmms, I did get an E in English Lit. GCSE so maybe not best placed to comment but I thought a apostrophe was used to possess a object so unless he is possessing Miss Price then I thought it should be whose.

I am more of a maths person.

lol @ all the randomness

I was curious so i popped into another sainsburys on my travels near birmingham and that also came up as £3.25:D again the one marked £6.50.

Other way round... quick course of ]GSCE English

The problem here is similar to that of it's and its, in that whose is possessive.

Who's is really who is, the apostrophe indicates that an i is missing:
e.g. "Who's that gorgeous girl over there?"

Whose means "belonging to the person":
e.g. "Dan, whose eyes were bloodshot, hadn't slept well."

Whose is a possessive pronoun.
e.g. whose cat, whose iPod, etc.

Who's is normally misused in questions such as:
"Who's bag is this?"

It should, of course, be "Whose bag is this?"

Cheap beer and we're arguing over the punctuation? The geek will inherit the earth...

Yeah, but this is English Lang! The apostrophe can be used in the possessive sense as you suggest eg "Sainsbury's, whose misprice was advantageous to HUKD, were selling Carlsberg cheaply!"
The 'Who's' use applies if it is in the sense of a contraction of 'Who is...?' which is the one he/she wanted here!

If you enjoy this kind of pedantics, you should read "Eats, Shoots and Leaves.":thinking:

P.S. I'm more of a Chemistry guy!:thumbsup:

Maths here, too, but I know my possessive pronouns don't have apostrophes. There's even a dedicated usenet newsgroup that I frequent. It's its own worst enemy.

Hey guys, great conversation, but it would be even better when we've all drunk an 8pack of the cheap but strong beer.
Heat and rep for the OP
