So i was just answering an Augmentin case study due tomorrow morning, and since this was somewhat last minute, i happened to be typing really fast. I hardly ever cross check my work (which is a very bad habit, kids). In fact, whenever I read my past blog posts I always go tut, tut, tut! But today, I decided to skim through my case study just in case my answer didn’t make sense. Then I found this
Do you have any idea how inappropriate that word is? (Or am I the only one with a perverted mind?)
Now before you tell me "You should’ve looked at the red line," Pages (Mac Word processing software) always underlines words that are not written in American English and you can’t change it to any other languages (intolerant much?) and since I have to hand in my assignments in UK or Aussie English, many words get the red underline. It seems with time I am learning to ignore the underline and this nearly made me hand this in!
When I was studying my foudation at Taylors, I did really well in English. My essays were always praised and one time, my argumentative essay even made it to the community Newspaper! So in the peak of my "English success" I handed in a huge essay about Courage and Endurance, thinking once again, I was going to top the class. When I got it back, I had absolutely no corrections, tick, tick, tick all the way through and even posisitve remarks! But somehow, I had lost 5%. I kept checking and checking and there it was – right at the concluding paragraph…. I meant to write:
"… from this analysis, we can deduce Sarina Russo’s father …"
but instead, I wrote
"… from this analysis, we can seduce Sarina Russo’s father …"
Embarrassment is an understatement of my situation that day.
I had to go and apologise to Sue, my English teacher and for the next few days couldn’t even look her in the eye.
The most embarrassing one! – A few years ago I was msn chatting with a guy I had a huge crush on (Oh, da good old days!). We hadn’t chatted in a while and he asked me if I was avoiding him, to which I replied.
"No I’ve just been very busty these days!"
Busty instead of Busy!!!! What’s worse? I didn’t realise until he replied with a ??? Gosh, I just wanted to sink into the ground and never resurface again! So embarrassing and it could’ve easily been true! Stupid double entendre typo! Shame things didn’t work out with him though (and NO! it wasn’t because of the Typo!….I think….) Hehehe, dude had other issues! Anyways that’s history now though. I think he is married… probably to a girl that can spell properly *sigh*
What’s the worst typo you’ve committed?
P.S. I was just watching Dexter’s Lab online and realised how much I miss it 🙂
