I love it when signs save me money and make me feel smart.  Of course, everyone’s had spell check do a number on their work — we’ve had a couple funny ones here at Toolmonger — but it’s amusing to see it happen to other folks, too.

Most people won’t read anything past “50 percent off” anyway, so “register” being misspelled way at the bottom will hardly be a stumbling block amid the pillaging going on at the table it’s attached to.  I had two tools in my hand before I stopped to read the sign fully myself.

    A company I once worked for screwed up their MS Office default build and continued to use it for a year. Anybody who had Office installed in that time had it preconfigured to used the British version of spell check. Many an extra ‘u’ appeared in memos for a long time.
