Irritating Spellers

Doesn't it annoy you when you read people's writing that's full of spelling mistakes (no, I'm not talking about typos here)? It sets my teeth on edge when I read those incorrect spellings.. over and over again. How can a graduate degree holder (mind you, it's English medium and in the USA) not know that spelling of better is better, not batter?? My guess is, they must have been cooking when they were writing the email. It stumps me to know how a person using computer at work on daily basis not know to run a spell check before sending their emails? I wish I can tell them on their face, that when there is no noise, it's called quiet, not quite. And you don't wander how someone is doing... you wonder. Imagine them teaching their kids..

How I "wander" what (or where?) you are...

Now it makes me wonder if at all they paid any attention to spellings when they were growing up. It's painfully funny, when you ask them to describe themselves, these are the people who would call themselves "vary easy going person" LOL! Of course it's easy because they don't care how to spell, they just type the way they say things.
I saw a profile online where the person was interested in meeting new people before being friends with them or go out on a blind date. He said "will meat then tell" let's just hope there are people out there who are actually interested in meating this guy.

Now I need to "gat" (Wish I can tell them "argh! it's gEt!! gEt!! gEt!! do you get it?") some tea to get rid of this headache. Wishing them "bast" of luck! Or rather to people who have to read their emails. :| Too bad uncle mOnocle isn't everywhere!

Yup, I know what you mean. Recently, I was reading something; the author's sister is a loyer. ;)
