Most Ridiculously Spelled Words People Have Encountered

It's far too easy to take for granted just how strangely spelled some of the words in the English language are. The weird spellings themselves can end up making for quite the hassle for when it comes time to actually say the words out loud. Seriously though, have we just accepted that desert and dessert are actually spelled wrong? 

People describe the most ridiculously spelled words that they've heard of.

Stupid Mistakes Tattoo Artists Witnessed

Tattoos can be tricky business. One typo or slip of the hand can have someone wearing "I love moom" on their bicep for the rest of their life. Tattoo artists take multiple precautions to idiot-proof the process, but we still end up with tattoo choices that have people asking questions. Sometimes the customers themselves are uncontrollable, like in the case of this male Karen who didn't believe a tattoo shop owner.

Clearly, the kid surfed right on into another dimension to grab the answer he needed to continue onwards with the spelling bee. That takes some kind of grit and composure to come back from a fainting spell, and actually manage to spell the word right. Good for this kid.

Spelling Fails That Left Us Emotionally Robbed

Spelling can be challenging, but there's sort of a base level that most of us should be comfortable with by now. That's not the case. We see spelling fails all the time. The really good ones are when people homebrew their own creative spelling of a popular phrase. No, it doesn't make sense to suffer from day jaw food, but that's just how regrettable and dumb spelling fails go.

Impressively Dumb and Creative Spelling Fails

Everyone makes spelling mistakes, but sometimes that mistake is so blatant or so far off the mark that a spelling fail can leave us emotionally robbed. It's a race to see who can ignore what words mean and just say whatever seems to make sense at the time. It's hard to look away from such creative misspellings and embarrassing spelling fails.

Regrettable and Dumb Spelling Fails

School wasn't fun for any of us, but in the long run it can pay to know how to spell really basic stuff and not look like a moron in public. On a daily basis, people come in contact with a lot of spelling fails that make us curse our education system. At least spelling fails make someone feel smart.

Design Failures that Deserve Some Blame

Designing things is hard, and people aren't very good at it. Whether it's an accidentally creepy sign or some painful looking stairs, we make things that probably could have used some extra input. This world is full of design failures that were someone's fault. For some more professional buffoonery, here are some "you had one job" moments of occupational incompetence.

Spelling Failures That Hurt a Little

Spelling is a skill, and enough time without practice can lead people down some weird rabbit holes of how letters are supposed to fit together. Sometimes watching someone write out their thoughts is enough to realize that they don't have a terrific grasp on what words mean. Either way, in life we come across a lot of spelling fails that deserve a harsh sentence.

Delusional Employee Defends Spelling of "Hampster"

Just cause you want something to be spelled a certain way doesn't mean it's actually spelled that way. It's something many creators of spelling fails never seem to learn. In this case she went and doubled down rather than deferring to the whole world telling her that there's no "P" in "Hamster." Is that the hill anyone wants to die on?

Spelling Fails That Mangled Words Up Nice

You can't sit down and make everyone spell the way you'd like them to, so you're just kind of left with seeing the mistakes where they arise and laughing about them when you can. Who knows what the cause is for all of these spelling fails. It could be public schools, sheer ignorance, aggressive autocorrect or a combination of all three.
