Sometimes spell check just isn’t enough.
Sean totally gets props for alerting me to this little gem.
Would that be something like a Trojan plant?
Okay, so for the last 15 years, I’ve worked for local government and I think I have typed (or tried to type) the word “public” about 10 million times. Unfortunately, this mistake is SOOOOO easy to make! And then you get paranoid about it, and it seems to happen more and more, to the point where you’re searching your documents before you send them out to make sure the “pubic” isn’t there!
Jelly, in my first job in TV, I had a keyboard where the “O” stuck regularly. And I lived in mortal terror that a when I was typing “County” for a screen chyron, I would end up with “Cunty” instead. I must have caught that right before air a few dozen times!
You can thank Mario for this one. He alerted me to it, but it was too good to not pass along.
Ooooh, at least my typos only get seen by a few people. hahaha!!!
My bane has ever been “gables.” As in Coral Gables. Which always turns out “bagels.” For the better part of 30 years.
How many times have I read a paper – or even a cookbook – recently and remarked ” Damn! These people need a copy editor!”
LOL, oh man!
Well, pubic safety does rather demand it’s own centre, otherwise it’d be in the same room as the teapot, and really, how sanitary could that possibly be?
I want to know what the job titles for the centre are, though… “Inspector of Curlie-Wurlies?” “General of Trims?” “The Brazilian Attache?”
That is absolutely positively pubiculous.
