Practically teething

October 5, 2011 at 22:45 | Posted in FAIL, Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Due to some rather extensive and drawn-out dental work, I haven’t been in the mood to eat, much less cook.

Wth?

I've never had this maccoroni you speak of.

So I am just going to address a pet peeve of mine: spelling. Spelling is important anywhere you are going to write something. When a restaurant writes their special on the little board, isn’t the purpose to have it read by lots of people? Isn’t the purpose to “sound” appetizing?

This is a ridiculous problem.

I felt dumber as I went into this establishment. It is irresponsible to misspell something as simple as macaroni in this particular forum. It is even worse that the work day was half over by the time I got there.

Does seeing something misspelled in public as bothersome to you as it is to me? Am I being too critical?

  1. Bad spelling is unacceptable. In every situation.

  2. Pet peeve, yes. Though sometimes I redirect my anger toward sarcasm and mocking. 🙂

  3. …and then there’s the Asian restaurant down the street from my house that perpetually advertises a special entree on the sidewalk sandwich board thing. Special is some pork dish served with Chiness Broccori and a spicy sauce on the side.

  4. You are wonderful. I very much appreciate this. I mean, one generally knows if he/she is a bad speller, so when forced to do something like advertise a special on a sign, just ASK SOMEONE TO DOUBLE-CHECK IT FOR YOU!

    Thank you, Nikki.
