A Silly Thing

How is it that many think the possessive of a name like Chris is Chris's? 

Man. There are other things I notice, too. But for some strange reason, that particular thing irks me a bit more than most.

Are these people going to re-write how the "law" is written? Will it one day be that way because countless times it showed up wrong?

As silly as it may even seem, I like the way it is supposed to be better. But maybe it is just the familiarity that has me feel that way. 

Who knows?

And, for anyone who may be wondering what I am talking about...the possessive of a name that ends in "s" is signified only by an apostrophe at the end of the name.

So. In the case of the story of Chris, it would be Chris' story.
