"I've" got news for you, the apostrophe isn't. Neither is the dot
within the less than semiliterate society. Perhaps in Sydney that

Since it's obviously not a question of whether or not _I_ have the
capability for thought, if you have a brain you must have meant
'whether' or not I thought the singular or plural was intended.
From _your_ choice of words and punctuation, one could have only
come to the conclusion that since, if an ostensibly intelligent life
form had written what _you_ wrote, the sense of the object would
have been plural. I could, however, be wrong.

Good Mr. Fields is on holiday and has left me behind to deal with
the likes of you. Easy task. A little toilet paper, a quick wipe

I did. She'll see you next Thursday at 2PM.

No, nothing like one at all...
I'm surprised you noticed.
