Spelling Fails That Made Words Harder Than They Had To Be

Maybe it's the state of public schools. Maybe it's parenting. Maybe no one cares. Maybe reading books is just lame. Either way, we see a whole lot of spelling fails out there that don't need to be out there. No one wants to be a stickler about this kind of thing, but when you see your third person of the day say talk about how they're taking things for granite and asking you to be more pacific, it wears you down. Here are some more regrettable and dumb spelling fails.

Misfortune Monday: Turmoil is the Name of the Game

Nothing will ever be perfect, so it's important to remember that relative happiness is all about finding room to breathe in between all the blunders, goofs, mistakes, failures and chaos. The thing about life is that it goes on and all the stolen hubcaps, flooded basements and toilet cobras are just part of it. Is it cathartic to see all these problems, or is it just spectacle? Who knows, it's just semi-regular distress with Misfortune Monday.

Spelling Fails That Beat The Meaning Out Of Words

Alright, fine. Linguistics majors who've taken their 100 level courses will tell you that language is an everchanging thing and that as long as someone has communicated something effectively, it counts as effective human communication. But they're not talking about the extremely dumb spelling fails that we all see every day. Calling a terrarium a "terrorism" isn't a profound shift in language as we know it, it's someone who didn't want to Google "thing my turtle lives in" and settled on the closest bowl of word salad that autocorrect wouldn't slide a red squiggly line under. Here are more spelling failures that really shift the bed.

Design Failures That Could Have Been Avoided

Graphic design, font choice and building decisions seem simple enough in our heads, but they come with pitfalls in practice. Design failures are all around us. One slip of the font can turn a fortress into a fartress or a public area into a pubic one. The architects of these design failures could use a little bit of blame. Of course, for the rest of us they just make life more fun and interesting.

"Not My Job" Moments of Occupational Ineptitude

As human beings, it's our duty to complete our jobs with the absolute minimum in mind. To some degree, we all pride ourselves on looking like we've done our jobs without making our general apathy and unprofessionalism too obvious. That said, we're not perfect and it can show in the form of "not my job" moments of dubious professionalism. But also, it's not like an upside-down stop sign is impossible to read.

Spelling Fails That Gave Words a Hard Time

Ever have a text correspondence with a friend and discover that they think the phrase "dog eat dog world" is pronounced "doggy dog world?" Ever read a comment section and discover that a different friend spells "calamity" as "clam city?" Spelling failures are a lot more common than you'd think. You could chalk it up to poor proofreading or the state of public schools, but the errors will persist. There's no escaping the impressively creative and dumb spelling fails of the world.

Design Fails That Could've Used A Second Set of Eyes

Designing things is hard. And it's not just a matter of spelling something correctly so that it doesn't accidentally say something filthy. Sometimes design fails exhibit really poor craftsmanship, horrible toilet placement or just a complete lack of sense. Whether it wields some kind of irony or is just sort of gross, design failures remind us daily that things can be worse.

Unsafe Maneuvers From Those Tempting Fate

It should occur to everyone that letting your dog pilot your scooter is a bad idea, yet some of us choose to trudge further on life's metaphorical (or literal) tightrope. Is it that we have too much blind faith in our ability to complete these unsafe maneuvers? Is it the belief that we're invincible? Is it self-confidence? Is it frugality? Whatever the reason for the many safety failures out there, it doesn't make them any less of a spectacle.

Misfortune Monday: Why Should Anything Go Right?

Not trying to be a Charlie Brown here, but it's not like there's a natural law dictating that our lives must go perfectly. We just kind of have to hope our lives play out better than horribly and not let the setbacks get to us. That's a hard thing to do in a merciless world where things just keep happening, but we're basically out of options. The world is home to misfortune and chaos, and we are its roommates.

Misfortune Monday: The World Keeps On Turnin'

The world is a merciless place filled with chaos and misfortune of all stripes. It's almost not even worth it thinking about what could go wrong, just because so much can go wrong. Worried your dog will escape your fence? Well he's already chewed up your shoes. Afraid your car will get towed in that iffy spot? Well it's been crushed by a tree. It's clear that in life, things just keep happening and we only have a little bit of control over the menagerie of misfortune that might befall us.

Safety Failures Of OSHA-Defying Boldness

Sure, the get 'er done mentality is an effective way to motivate yourself to complete tough jobs and long hours, but when it's used by your boss to justify lowering you on a backhoe over the side of a cliff, you're entering safety failure territory. Anyone with a physical job is regularly tempted or ordered to take scary shortcuts in the form of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Gotta admit, jacking a car up with a plastic chair doesn't really seem worth it.

Design Fails That Could Have Used a Second Look

For some reason it's always the least detail-oriented who are in charge of details. Maybe it's a lax attitude toward perfection that leads to some "not my job" failures of professionalism. Maybe it's just overconfidence that results in design failures that deserve some blame. Whatever the reason, it sure does not look good to have a big sign that reads "We will eat your family."
