The Best (worst) Spelling and Grammar Errors Thread

In the middle of reading this, flipping around, in the back there is a usage section and there are word pairs that get confused:

  • naval, navel - What? Come on...
  • miner, minor - You gotta be kidding me.
  • ordinance, ordnance - I kind of get this.
  • straight, strait - That's it, I am outta here.

Am I overreacting?

Those aren’t usage issues, they’re more spelling errors.

When I think common usage errors, I think there/their/they’re, to/too, and you’re/your...

Like you, I would’ve hoped that a book on syntax would have recognized that.

It’s unbelievable how often I get notes from school  teachers that have those errors. 

‘Please be sure to sign the waiver if your going on the field trip.’

’Their all looking forward to it.’

Good lord, I almost added a golf post to my status report. Good thing my buddy stopped me from posting that along with this...

You quoted before I edited. What’s funny is I changed it to 0.4 from1.4 in the first place 🤪

And after I edited the first time 

I added this here, because it's also a really dumb thing. Last time I try to write a report and blog at the same time, and thank goodness for "zoom" screen share. 🙈

Recently saw an ad for a local supermarket's "Big Seafood Sale". They had an incredible special on MAIN lobster tails! I never knew that there was one main lobster in the sea that provided all the lobster tails!

Brie Larson was good, too.   She’s got a lot of charm.   Since she may be one of the big guns in the Marvel Universe going forward, it’ll be nice to see how they flush out her character

Pretty sure he means "flesh out." 🙂

I don't have a bitching wedge. I wonder if I should look into getting one to fill out my set. :-P

One of the teachers at school has a poster that states that punctuation is important.

Local online paper wrote a good story about a state wrestling champ being a good golfer.  

Polar opposites: Three-time state wrestling champ is also top golfer

This was my response to the writer of the article:

"An 18-hour round can take up to five hours to play -- providing you're lucky" (note actual quote) 

Good article. It's nice to highlight something positive in the area. 

That being said, the reality is that a 5 hour round is sad. With the new rule changes in place a foursome should be able to compete in much less time that that.

Good grief! It's getting into the bizarro world. In Monday's paper, at the very top of the front page are two sports blurbs to clue you as to what in the sports section. One of the blurbs read, "Greg Woodland wins US Open". I pull out the sports section to read the article and see this. There's a picture of Woodland giving the fist pump after sinking the birdie putt at 18, with a caption below correctly identifying him as Gary Woodland. Then, the headline of the article reads, "Overland holds off Koepka for first major title." Overland?! Where the Hell did that come from? 

I was so pissed that I called the paper to complain. I told them that if they needed a proofreader I was available. The person I talked to could not have cared less about the paper's business, and no job offer was forthcoming!

    • This whole video is worth watching, but the marked spot below shows what many amateurs do and then what you should be doing.  
    • 1. Average 150+ ball speed and max over 155. I can hit 150 but am averaging high 140s.  2. Handicap to high 3. I have fluctuated in the 4s and 5s this year but really want to have that be 3s and 4s.  3. Average 10 greens a round.  4. Scrambling at 50%. 
    • I really can't see the commissioner route. That is a real grind and I don't see Tiger wanting to devote that much time to the Tour.  I do see him teeing it up in the Senior Majors. He may say no now, but he is just too competitive not to play. 
    • I am a believer in golf instruction, but I'm not the best student. I much prefer to play rather than practice, and when the off season comes I get pretty busy and don't take the time to practice. I've had instructions from 2 different people and I've liked both, but I had my back issues start up when I just started with one. I find people like the gentleman in the op exasperating. I don't care if you don't want to bother with golf instruction, but I also don't want to listen to your rant. Read the room, so to speak.
    • Day 1: Trying to get into this challenge again, again. Starting today since I had a lesson. I feel like I have gotten to a point in my golf ability where I am creating a video game character with a limited number of stat points to distribute. Every time I add points to one area, they get taken from another area. I need to improve my commitment to practice and practice methods to really get out of this mode. This time I have to work on my backswing again, again - more turn earlier, more width, more depth. Have a simple thought for the downswing since it's not what needs to be fixed first - hit a push and finish low.
