A friend sent this line from something she received at work. Spell check would not find this one so sometimes you just need to read things before you send them out.
Not one, but TWO, errors in the same headline on my news station. I’m sure this is all intentional to keep me in material. They misspelled not only “circle,” but “from.” Neither of those is difficult, but “form”is an example of a misspelled word by context, but a real word that spell check would not catch–but a human looking at their work should.

I saw this recently on Facebook. This is just an obvious (and regrettable) misspelling.
Apparently someone decided a syllable in the word “administrator” wasn’t really necessary. And I don’t think it was the state saving letters to save money.
My local news station comes through for me again with this misspelling that would have been caught both by actually looking at it AND by using spellcheck. #proofread #proofthatblog #azfamily
My cousin sent this one to me. I love friends and I love fried chicken (it is my death row meal), but “friend chicken” scares me a little bit. Again, the word is not misspelled, it is just no the right word. You need to read for context to make sure it is the right word.
Even though I am pretty old, even I know that the artist “The Weeknd” is spelled differently than this news station apparently does.
Thanks to my local news station for this one.
This time, I’m pretty sure the aliens made them do it, but here is a recent news story locally.
My trusty news station comes through again.
