You are reading page 4 of We're not English Majors, but.... If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Its the typing and sometimes people talk to text and you really need to read it back to make sure they heard you right. I don't myself but I have friends that do . Hey what about coffeve? Ease up maybe it is just typo's.

I couldn't agree more. By the way, when you used 'lead' it should be 'led' ... and I've been seeing this error a lot lately in articles and so on. I guess people get fooled because the METAL lead is pronounced the same as led, as in 'she led the race', but the latter is led, not lead.

Just started a new PD case today and was reading through our (UNOFFICIAL/NON-LEGAL, thank goodness) notebook log and found some consistently creative spelling in very scrawly penmanship, so I just had to rush here to share:

"After brakefast, he came in here and red his papper in his chere."

"Satterday and Sanday"

"oatemeel"

(on a shopping list:) "ceriel, juce, and batries"

"Voice is stile some horsed"

"Had a good appteit today."

and last, but not least:

"He shared" (showered!) :bored:

Permit me to say, YOWZA!​ :wideyed:
