@MikeB4 . I do teh lots too.

 

So much so, that I have set up an auto-correcty thing for it in Word.

 

Also "administartor". So often I get annoyed with a pc saying the password is wrong when I know damn well I've typed it correctly, only to notice on the umpty-umpth attempt that teh username is spelled wrong.

 

Oh look, I did teh again.

 

 





Life is too short to remove USB safely.

Bureaucracy - something that must be spelled correctly when criticising it.

 

I can spell most words correctly but typing can be an issue.

 

E.g. framing and farming are interchangeable for me when typing.  "John has been framing cows for 15 years ..."

 

People wonder what crimes he has framed them for?

i used to be a good speller, now it doesn't matter with spell check correcting all my mistakes. Like  simple maths , it's a dying art . Technology has a lot to answer forsmile

 

 

It certainly does. And not always for the better.

 

Last year I had called for a proposal from 3 companies for a possible $1,500,000 contract. I explained that the full proposal would be provided to the client, along with my report and possible recommendation. One of the proposals, (prepared and signed by this particular company's National Sales Manager) had American spelling in it. I duly sent it back to him asking him to correct the spelling errors, to which he replied three days later that is was indeed correct. I took great delight in telling him that it was not and that he needed to change his Word Spell checker to NZ.

 

"Ouch" came the reply. "In 18 months, you are the first person to pick that up!"

 

I was so tempted to ask him how business has been lately.

I simply can't use favourite instead of favorite, or behaviour instead of behavior. When I try the British spelling all auto-correct features point them out as incorrect, anyway lol

Conscience (trick is con science 😉 )
And practice / practice (both are right but who knows when to use which 🤷‍♂️)
Cue for queue is my most frustrating spelling to correct in kids writing, along with doen for done (year4)

Not so much spelling for me but a space bar that seems to hav ea mind of its own.

 

As demonstrated without actually trying.
