    The news had this headline as they were talking about a robber who had been caught:

    "PHARMACY BURLGARIES"

    Made me do a double-take to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me.

    Ther'es been such a rash of burglaries lately, it's quite shocking.

    My point was the spelling mistake on the TV headline, though. Spelling mistakes like this drive me bonky.

    It happens here all the time. Makes me a bit nuttier than usual. And you don't even want to see the classified ads! Always good for some laughs!

    Yeah, we've got the swine infulenza.

    What was even funnier was the porfessor they were interviewing about the infulenza.

    I just went on a local news stations report and HAD to email them with the many, many errors in spelling, grammar, and quotations.

    Example, they had a grammatically incorrect quote from the school's principal. They also had the audio of the same quote. The principal DID NOT say what they had directly quoted!

    I emailed my corrections and it was corrected by the "next business day". I told them that I was shocked. Except vs. Accept - spelling errors, quotation errors.... it was awful! One or two mistakes, not worth the effort - 5 or 6....unacceptable!

    OMG, yes. That's one of the smallest complaints that we have about our Elementary school principal. He has two secretaries. He refuses to let them look over the stuff he sends to parents!!! HE IS A HORRIBLE TYPIST! It's really funny though.
