Well, we got a letter from the principal from Aydans school and there were three words misspelled in the letter. And of course, my young son was reading it----so much for him having to do well on spelling tests----right?

Thats a good one. Did you point it out to them?

Our local Agway was selling "bird suits" last year.. I pointed it out and it took them days to change it. [should have been suet]

I am a teacher. If you check out the Punny Monday feature on my blog you will see that I made this exact same typo in my slide show. I promise this isn't my classroom, though. I would have stepped back and looked that bulletin board over carefully before letting the parents in.

However, teachers are people, too. While we should take care to double check our work for mistakes, I do think it is unreasonable for others to expect us to never make them. I earned a college degree, not perfection.

quilly said...

Wait a minute! Your a teacher, too. (I'm extra slow tonight.) IS that YOUR bulletin board?!

Alicia said...

love it!! that's awesome! lol

Nellyn said...

Thank you for your prayers and support!

how do they separate welcome like "welc-ome"????
Other than being misspelled and such, it's just plain funny!:)

Y'all: Giant is a local grocery store. This is the bulletin board in the front of the store. I pointed out their mistake 3 weeks ago. The typo still stands.

Yaya said...

Haha!



You commented right above me at sits today....creepy!

Susie said...

They definitely need to go back to school!

Affecting a Boston accent in print?

Tammy Howard said...

Oh. No. Way.


(so tempted to say "your funny" - but so many people really make this mistake, I can't risk having you think I'm one of them!)

I remember going to an open house at school and my daughter's teacher had misspelled words on the white board.

Also, there was a private school who's TV ad had several misspelled words...I called them and told them it may indeed be a "privelege" to attend, but that they should really hire an editor before airing commercials for their superior school.

haha. I love pictures like this. I hate that it is a classroom...but it still cracks me up.

Genny said...

That is too funny!

Yeah, I'm Still Here... said...

HaHa! I'm always getting those dang "headquaters" too. I just take a pill and lie down until they go away...

'R' you kidding?

Sad.

blueviolet said...

That's just shameful!

Oh my goodness! Sadly, it is not an isolated event. I've had emails from my daughters' teachers with all kinds of spelling and grammatical errors. It is quite scary.

I'm stopping by from SITS! I just wanted to share a bit of comment love. I hope the rest of your week is absolutely amazing!

I thought the mistake was that the little girl has her pants on backwards...

The Blonde Duck said...

Well, they are going back to school...

Loved the lunchbox pun!

Brian, the old man said...

Makes sense to me, they are head of all the quaters, what ever a quater may be. Maybe it's some rare element needed for a science project or an animal from a far off land. I'm sure if you asked they could help you find all of the quaters you need.

Mom of Three said...

Ok it could be exhaustion catching up with me, but I can't stop giggling at this one. Lol.

I keep hearing it being said like "Head KWAY ters".

Helene said...

I noticed that right away!!! LOL!!

quilly said...

you're

You know, I never quit when I'm ahead. sigh

miss jo said...

Funny. Funny. Was the bulletin board in Brooklyn ?

LadyStyx said...

This one definitely needs to be sent to the Grammarphile's site. If not there, then definitely over to the FAIL site.
