    1. Hey kadaver, thanks for stopping by! Actually, a proper noun that ends in 'S' (usually last names like Jones, Sims, etc.), is a bit of a special case, grammatically.

      Such names are not plurals, and thus to use [Sims'] as a possessive isn't consistent with general use. Although [Sims's] looks awkward to some people, it is actually correct. Many style guides will also say, however, that [Sims'] to show possession is becoming more and more acceptable.

      I just prefer the old way.
