Which word do you hate being spelled wrong?

A lot of people are really horrible at spelling. i try to cut them some slack, but sometimes, it just drives me nuts! This one is the worst of all (in my opinion): Flordia. No, it's F-l-o-r-i-d-a. If you sound it out, you will spell it right. It isnt a hard word, so I think that's why it gets on my nerves. People are just too lazy to think things through! lol I am talking about people who have lived in America their entire lives. I understand that they may not be able to spell every state, but I think Florida is an easy one! What words drive you guys nuts? Or am I just crazy?!?!? lol

I agree that Florida is an easy word to spell but we also have to considers some reasons why it was misspelled. Here in mylot or in some emails, there are lots of typographical error because our minds are faster than our brain. Even in written pieces, some words are left misspelled when we do not have time to check it. In my case, I hate checking papers of my students who abbreviate words in TXT format. I don't know if they are just used to that way or they play safe because they don't really know the spelling of some words. I hate it when my family name is misspelled but I must admit it is something unique that people tend to misspell it most of the time.

If you are crazy then I am too. I agree Florida has to be one of the easiest states to spell. The ones that irritate me the most are; fiery, leisure, misspell, oh and the whole their/they're/there thing don't get me started. Anyway poor spelling and grammar irks me to no end. ^_^ Great discussion topic.
