Here is an example of how spell check doesn’t always help. “Untied” is spelled correctly. Unfortunately, “untied” isn’t the correct word in this instance. #proofthatblog #proofreading #untiedvsunited
I saw this recently in an Amazon affiliate application. Really, Amazon?
Once again my favorite news station gives me some material. The weather person realized the mistake, but couldn’t do anything about it. I’m thinking the temperature was supposed to be 60 degrees, but I guarantee the temperature shown is not a beautiful Arizona Spring day!
I noticed this when I was doing an ECF filing last week. All I can do is shake my head.
We found this error on a drink menu at a restaurant we recently visited. Perhaps if they’re going to abbreviate “glass” to be “gls,” they should abbreviate “pitcher” to be”pit.” That would at least fix this error.
I found this one on Twitter. It should be ASKING for immunity. It is nice to know that it isn’t just my news station that has these kinds of errors.
My news station of choice always keeps me in material. This time it was a story about Burger King’s plan to distribute toothpaste that tastes like a Whopper (it was an April Fool’s joke). While the name of the toothpaste here is correct, the headline on the screen is not. Whoops . . . I mean Whooper!
A loyal Proof That follower sent this to me. She says that the word “trustee” is spelled correctly on the reverse side of the sign.
I recently received a email from Bluehost which I actually read. I found this at the end of the email. I regularly see this as “Dear [INSERT NAME HERE],” but I don’t usually see it for the sender’s own phone number.
One of my favorite sites is Cake Wrecks. I found this on that page and am sharing it here. Spelling matters! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
