I Kant Spel
My biggest pet peeve would have to be people who can't spell. How hard is it to ask the person next to you if you've spelled something correctly? My husband checks with me all the time. If there's no one around, type the word into Google. It will tell you if it's spelled wrong. It's like magic! Lastly, if you don't have a friend or a computer, you can get out your trusty pocket dictionary. If you don't have one, run to the store and get one. Today. Right now. Before they're all sold out!
How would I punish those who can't spell? I think they should have 'I KANT SPEL' written in Sharpie on their forehead. After three offenses, the Sharpie gets replaced with a tattoo. How's that for a lesson learned?
