Words fail me, so I’m quoting Meredith Colleges Colleges’ College’s grammar guide:

The correct use of plural and possessive forms may seem like a minor issue. Among educated persons, however, incorrect forms, especially misuses of apostrophes, stand out like red flags. One area executive has said he will not hire an applicant whose letter or resume includes such an error. ~”Patient Griselda’s Guide to Grammar” (Meredith College, NC)

{Oh, and bonus points if you find the misspelled word. Nothing like a double whammy.}
