Funny, funny stuff. Life’s little quirks
I’m very anal about typos. When I read a book I am SO tempted to underline them when I find them. I have too much respect for books to actually do it, but I always want to. It somehow ruins the story for me a little when I find them. I have also written in to news stations to let them know when their scrolling news has errors. lol I’m seeing more and more with automated spell checks. I suppose it’s because I always read a lot that I see them. But some of them are funny and worth mention.
Today – someone posted on facebook – << little arrows pointing at their picture and the word Idot. lol I think they were trying to say they were an idiot. I don’t have the heart to point out the typo – but thought it rather funny that they’re calling themselves an idiot AND they spelled it wrong. lol Sort of backs up their claim. lol I know, that’s mean. But funny in it’s own little way.
Let me clarify – I don’t think that person is an idiot – and I don’t like to see people put themselves down. It just seems appropriate to call yourself an idiot and spell it wrong. It’s like proof. lol
Another one I liked was when someone posted that they were GARDUATING. lol I mentioned that it certainly wasn’t English. lol
And as far as that goes… when you type anything now on nearly any site or program – if you spell something wrong it gets a little red line under it. How can that be missed? lol
Ah well, it’s 10:00 and I’m bored already – things to do that I don’t want to do. Off I go. 🙂
