Boss Insists Spellcheck Is Broken, Has It "Fixed," Makes Gibberish Until Fired

If spellcheck is making it impossible for you to make a sentence, there's a decent chance it's not spellcheck's fault. It's like this employee who insisted on their spelling of "Hampster." This exact issue is what births many dumb and creative spelling fails, but we're not here to tell people how to spell correctly. We're here to laugh at them. It's hard to tell a higher-level employee when they're wrong, but if they insist on being wrong, go ahead and let them. For another technical solution to a frustrating boss, here's an employee who wrote some code to comply with their boss who said employees can't idle.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
