Ever since I switched from writing on paper to typing on a computer, I’ve gotten worse at spelling. It’s the ubiquitous spellcheck that does me in – it’s on my phone, my word processor, even my internet searches get automatically corrected or checked for spelling. If I never need to pay attention to spelling why should I be any good at it?
I mean, to be clear I’m not that bad at spelling. We all make mistakes sometimes, and that’s just a part of being human.
Some mistakes are worse than others of course. And sometimes it’s hard to tell if a mistake is just that, or if it’s actually a reflection of genuine dumbness. Or maybe they just don’t know? You decide:
