MISSPELLING MONDAY for April 13, 2009 (post 1 of 2)


I get really excited when Express, one of my favorite stores, sends me e-mails telling me that they're having a sale. Sale = YAY! (Grammarphile = borderline shopaholic!)

But then when I visit their website to see exactly what they have on sale, I get very, very sad when I see misspellings. They misspelled "sleeveless"...and then spelled it correctly right below the misspelling. Spelling FAIL...and consistency FAIL!

This sort of disappointment actually makes me sad enough to not want to shop for a couple days. Oh, if only more of my favorite stores had spelling errors in their e-mail blasts (c'mon, Sephora, you guys know you want to make a few errors that will dissuade me from buying more Philosophy stuff that I don't really need, right?)...then I wouldn't be buying too much, which means this constant, nagging thought that I don't have much more room in my closet* would just kind of, you know, go away...

* I fix that "I don't have that much more room in my closet" dilemma by building more closets. Consider me the Patron Saint of Rescuing Shirts and Shoes from Sale Racks. I don't wanna leave the poor things without a good home, now do I? That would just be cruel.

*shakes head* I'll need to keep my eyes open when I shop online.

Yes, yes, you will--there are tiny little spelling mistakes like this one hidden *everywhere*... :)

Sephora is dangerous. I went in to pick up my free birthday gift and ended up buying a random eyeshadow kit. They really should throw in a spelling error here and there, I think it would help.

I agree--Sephora is dangerous! I had a similar experience there when I picked up my birthday gift a couple months ago; I bought stuff I definitely didn't really need, haha. Did you get the lip glosses or the vanilla cupcake shower gel as your birthday gift? :)

I got the lip glosses. =)

That's what I picked, too! I liked them--they were sparkly and fun! :D
