I’ve probably said this before, but I’ll say it again… (and we all know it and do it!)… don’t rely on the spellchecker!
I recently wrote “Cat passed its MOT” on a facebook post, before realising I meant “Car”! 🙂
(For those of you who live outside of the UK, the MOT is the annual check your car has to pass to ensure it’s roadworthy – it’s definitely not for cats!)
Here are some more:
- Witch is faster?
- It reins on the planes.
- Sewing seeds. (I’m guilty of this one!)
- She through it into the river.
Do you have any spellcheck problems? Words you often type wrong? Put them in the comments below – it’s good to know we’re all human!
I’ll leave you with the Ode to the Spellchecker:
Owed to the Spell Checker
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea see
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
It’s letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me so.
Love to you all,
P.S. I have a free mini writing course coming up. I’ll let you know when I’ve got it up and running, and how to sign up. 🙂
