RE: Worst typos you've ever seen
I just saw "allude" used instead of "elude", which was the word they actually wanted. No one alludes the police.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Worst typos you've ever seen
Worst I've ever seen involve my name, but I won't be divulging that. But, just for the sake of argument, let's say my name was David So What. I've had mail addressed to What DavidSo, based on that. When I worked as a mechanic, the uniforms came out labeled as David WoWshots. Nearest I can figure on that one is the person making the order is listening to the person taking the order repeating the letters, and correcting them as they go, kind of like an echo. Facepalm

My last name is two words. It took me 40+ years to get that corrected (put in the space) on my driver's license. The California DMV uses software that requires some sort of special character between the words to make the space. How hard can that be to understand? But there are people who don't know what that special character is. (Pro tip- it's a backslash!). We have people here in California who have 2, 3 and 4 word last names; sometimes the DMV figures it out. Sometimes they don't, and ONE of my three sons gets summoned for jury twice as often, since they can't figure it out- they summon him as XXX So What AND as XXX What. Pff.

It's the serifs that hurt the most, in my experience. At least they scrape off the most inflamed hemorrhoids. Drinking Beverage

I used to work for a ready mix concrete company. The all-around mechanic and fix it guy had the name 'Earnest' on his uniform shirts. I know that some people use alternate spellings of names. I finally had to ask him...it WAS spelled incorrectly...his name was Ernest. For whatever reason, he just let it slide and wore shirts every day with the wrong name.

Will...are you high or am I?

My favorite will always be an ad in the small town newspaper where I grew up. There was a five and dime store that ran a full page ad every week. One week the item that caught my eye was "Men's knit shits - $9.99". I laughed till I cried.

I sure wish I had kept that but I think my mother did after I showed it to her.

I know, the autocorrect on my iPad made like four errors on that post and I didn't catch them all.

An accounting firm where I used to work had "Certified Pubic Accountants" on their letterhead once. Facepalm

A kid in a local preschool alluded to the cops once. The teacher was asking "what sound a pig makes" and he stood up and yelled "hands in the air, motherfucker!"

Apparently they don't have many farms in Detroit. Big Grin
