I have explained to them that the apostrophe makes the word "no" possesive which is, of course, an absurdity and that it should, instead, be enclosed in quotation marks ("NOS") indicating that it is understood that it is a coined word used in a fanciful way which is OK or just left as NOS. It's on a great big sign that is the first thing that school kids see when get off the shuttle.
Annoyed, 'dog
-10 points for misspelling "their"
