Grammar Giggle – Tresury

For this Grammar Giggle, I have to admit that I am truly a grammar nerd. My nephew posted this on Facebook. I immediately had to post that his bank has misspelled “Treasury” and how disappointed I was. A cousin responded that I hadn’t even flinched at the “pornhub” entry. Well, to be honest, that’s because I didn’t get past the misspelled “Treasury.” In the days since, I have seen the same picture multiple times, so I was getting upset over a meme . . . again. But I can see this happening in real life, so I’m including it. And it did make me laugh when I realized what I had done.

Grammar Giggle – Didgital

While I was shopping at a local grocery store with my daughter recently, I came upon this sign. The correct word is “digital,” meaning “relating to or using calculation directly with digits rather than through measurable physical quantities” (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/digital) (emphasis added).
