16 Horrific Moments People Who Can’t Spell Will Relate To – #4 is Death of Grammar

There’s nothing more embarrassing than the inability to spell. Especially when the world is full of people who like to mock us bad-spellers!

So fellow terrible spellers unite together and mope over these situations that we can all relate to:

The idea of writing in front of anyone terrifies you

We’ve all been there, may it be writing on a chalkboard/whiteboard in front of people or handwriting near people. As soon as that writing implement is in your hand the sweats begin.

You remember when not everyone had computers and you had to write your essays on paper

You had to write out about 4 drafts and agonised over every word you wrote. The hand cramp was awful.

When your spelling is so bad that not even Google or Word know what word you mean

And it is at this point that you have to embarrass yourself and ask your family or friends.

You could never, ever work in Starbucks

The idea of having to spell anyone’s name (including the simple ones) is the job of nightmares.

You always have at least one friend will a silly name you can’t spell

We’re talking to all you Hermiones, Eilidhs and Niamhs! We blame the parents really. Name your kid something simple.

You know how to say all these fancy words

But you can’t spell them so you have to dumb down whatever you’re writing with a word that you can spell.

When you think Word has given up on trying to correct your spelling

Because you can NEVER trust that you’ve spelled anything correctly.

When you make a really ironic spelling mistake and all your friends mock you

And you never want to leave your home again.

When you can’t spell your own job role

Indeed, it will take you about 5 years in the job to finally get your head round it.

When you find one of your old spelling tests from school

And you have to instantly burn it.

Before there was Google this was your best friend

And you spent 80% of an essay’s time with your nose in this looking for the correct spelling.

When you try to write a handwritten letter

And it ends up looking like this because your spelling is atrocious.

When you want a script tattoo

But the tattooist can’t spell any better than you. Uh oh.

When someone asks you to proof read something

At least it will be their work that has all the spelling mistakes that you couldn’t proof-read. It might end a few friendships though.

You dreaded spelling competitions in school

You never made it passed the first round.

In fact, you dread having kids and needing to help them with spelling tests

Please no one ask us to spell cafeteria. Ever.

So if I ever stop writing, it's because I've been in a lab experiment and turned into a super villain. I'm particularly interested in video games, comics and Harry Potter. Oh and I have lots and lots of cats.
