I got past this spelling thing on LJ a long time ago. Pretty well every Project you read has spelling errors in it. One of them used the word “the” 3 times in 2 sentences spelled “teh”. PULEEZZZ!!!

Yes. It bothers me but as pointed out before there are other things in LIFE that might be worth getting your Knickers in a Knot about. I visit here to get my Knickers Un-Knotted ….LOL…

Judging by a lot of email I get, some people don’t even want to bother using Spell Check before they send it. Forget Grammar and Capital letters and Paragraphs. The prevailing attitude seeems to be that it’s really not all that important. That to me is a Tad Sad.

Craftsman and I have the same complaint about pronunciation though. It gets me on some of the Home Improvement Shows on TV. The thing on top of your house is not a “RUF” it’s a “ROOF” OO OO OO. The eavestrough is not attached to a “Facer” it’s a “Fascia” “Face-she-uh”. A large upstairs hall is not another “Foy-er” “Foy-a”, Foyer is a French word meaning Entrance or Grand Entrance.

I’m not sure about you folks “Down There” (USA) but little old me up here (Kanada) OOPPSS (Canada) did not particularly care for ….every time I would say “Thank You” usually after buying something, which is a little Obscene in and of itself …. receive the reply “No Problem” what the hell happened to “You’re Welcome”.

Then we have that ever infamous word “Irregardless” and I Love to tell who ever said it …”There ain’t no such word.” and the ensuing discussion. (Some times known as being a “Fecal Disturber”) FUN FUN FUN!!!

GEEZ Jonathan why did you start this thing …LOL… Say something mildly surprizing to someone and you get “SHUTUP!!” That’s apparently been softened to “SHUT THE DOOR!!” EH!?

How cum they dont have no spill chucker on hear????

Okay! That’s it. I’m gunna go reed my Diktionerie for a wile.

Kcir ….....Sorrie… Rick
