MISSPELLING MONDAY for November 2, 2009

Holy crap, it's November already. How did that happen?

And also on the topic of "How did that happen?"...


More like "Remember to not omit necessary letters in your words, and also remember that well and will are not the same thing."*

Thanks, LadyStyx, for finding this very timely (and screwy) sign!

* Thank goodness I re-read this before posting it, since I actually spelled the word "letters" with only one t. That would have been ironic, no?

It's also wrong about the consequences of not setting the clocks back an hour. You'll be early, not late.

It's also epically wrong in it's message. If you forget to set your clocks BACK, you'll be an hour EARLY, not late.

I'm beginning to think that the world-wide English speaking community needs to consider holding a forum for the purpose of eliminating double letters in words. They really do very little beyond confuse the marginally capable among us. Plus they waste a boatload of keystrokes - kind of like this whole comment.

Also, if one hadn't set their clocks back by an hour, one would have been EARLY the next morning, not LATE.

@ Bridgete, k-bro, and MarieC: You guys are so smart--you're absolutely right! I didn't even catch that until you pointed it out! Nice work. ;)

@ David: Haha! Wouldn't that be problematic with some words, though? How can you tell a "but" from a "butt" if you drop the second "t" from "butt", for instance?

LadyStyx said...

Shoot...I didnt even catch it and I took the friggin picture! *laffin*

As for telling a but from a butt if there's a missing t...just look for the one with the crack in it...

LadyStyx, you never fail to *crack* me up! :)
