Spelling errors that make you want to scream!!!
« on: 14/05/2011 01:02:30 »
Actually, I'm pretty bad with spelling.  Thank god there are spell checkers, but I'm sure I'll be putting my "fut" in my mouth.

Let me start this off with a few.

Right now on Craigslist you can buy a welder with two "settling" tanks (and 2 oxygen tanks too).

And one for Geezer...  Not really a spelling error, but I had a discussion once with a neighbor about loosing memory due to "Old Timer's Disease".

Yes, it's particularly annoying to see "losing" spelt as "loosing" too  :)

As a retired World of Warcraft player, Rouge instead of Rogue annoyed me just a little bit.

What really narks me is text speak, I don't mind the odd abbreviation such as 'Lol' but the likes of 'Rolf' or even worse 'Rolfcopter', 'Wtf' is that?

At least with spelling mistakes the writer has kind of made an effort. Unless were talking about super-sized walls of text with no punctuation, but then that's a different story.

"Thank god there are spell checkers"
Just for the record, you should spell God with a capital G.

hahahaha...Right you are. Spelling mistake is really too much annoying for sometime. Anyways, "Old Timer's Disease" is a serious & problematic diseases for anyone at the time of old age. I think if we start discussing with the matter, we can run for a probable solution..

You can also have fun with spelling mistakes.
If your Boss askes you if you will finish the report, you can happily reply with "I defiantly will"

That would work. However, as I learned the other evening while watching "New Tricks", apparently, it's a "wunch".

A "wunch of bankers" eh!

Methinks that just might be a Spoonerism.
