I have a FB friend who is constantly misspelling simple words. She uses:

 

All instead of I’ll

Are instead of Our

Two instead of Too

Deer instead of Dear

I go crazy reading her posts!

One of my facebook “friends” uses taken instead of taking. For example: “I’m taken a shower right now” or “I love taken care of my nephew!”

It drives me insane.

Another one, my bosses are all native French speakers but speak fluent English as well. They consistently use “illegible” to mean “not eligible” instead of “impossible to read”. It’s really grating to listen to all the time.

The other day at work, one of our client services managers sent an office-wide email to congratulate one of her employees on getting a promotion. These were her exact words: “This promotion is surely disserved” Disserved? Then why did he get the promotion? Haha

I will say, I do say hubs about the husband all the time, but I call him that IRL as well.

@Mrs. Fireworks:  Hahahaha, company emails are the best.

I feel bad giggling because I work for a Japanese company, and so English is not the first language of several of my coworkers, but it does cause some great emails.  A few weeks ago, when I caught a mistake one lady had made and emailed her to let her know, she fixed it and then emailed me back.  “Sorry for the incontinence,” she said.  I just about died from laughing so hard.

“A whole nother.”  Grating on the ears, horrific on the eyes.

@Sweet Melissa: YES! I actually posted this earlier in the thread, but I’m glad to see someone in agreement with me! There’s an episode of “A Way With Words” on NPR where they say there’s nothing wrong with “a whole nother” and I wanted to throw my shoe at the radio when I heard them say that.

@melodicsighs1: She got that – she was saying that the bosses use illegible to mean “not eligible,” rather than to mean “not legible,” as it should be used.

rediculous  

Is this the new thing or just poor spelling?  I see it all the time and before I thought it was just in error.  Or is this what the kool kids are misspelling.  I’ve seen it 4 times today!
