The Grammar Fails That Make You Wish These People Used Spellcheck

Published on 09/19/2019

Everyone has spelling errors sometimes, but not everyone has spelling errors as drastic and public as these ones. All of these spelling fails will make you wonder why these people didn’t use their spellcheck, or how these words possibly got so misspelled. Hold on tight, because you’re in for a horribly-misspelled ride!

A State Is For Sale

Unless an entire state in the U.S. is for sale, this is a huge spelling error. We get it, “sound it out”, but sometimes that’s not always your safest option. An estate sale and a state sale are two very different things; we hope the customers understood the message.

Tasteless Pop

I love a can of pop just as much as the next guy, but I’m not so sure how I feel about tasteless sugar in my drink. It sounds a bit like there’s not really sugar inside, which makes for an entirely different drink. So what’s in the drink, Pepsi? What exactly is tasteless sugar? This is where punctuation really matters.

Inspiring Fruits

If there’s one major goal everyone should strive to achieve in life, it’s gaining admiration from pears. Peers, also, but definitely pears. We’ll give some credit here- the words sound quite similar- but boy oh boy do they have different meanings!

Anti-Winter Boots

This is a classic spinoff of the popular Ugg Boots, but we’re not sure the word “ugh” was the best way to go. “Ugh, Boots” was probably exactly what nearly every customer saw when they read this sign. But hey, for $10-12, I guess no one can complain too much. Ugh!

Adventurous Dinner

I’ve definitely never had a launch dinner, but now I’m quite curious about what it is. Do they launch you into space for dinner, or maybe launch your food directly into your mouth? Or, maybe they meant to spell lunch and you really just get three normal meals served to you. Launching food sounds way more fun, to be honest.

Unsanitary

Umm, can someone call the health department here? We totally understand not using your hands, but honestly, using your tongue is definitely worse. Maybe they should try to invest in a pair of tongs for their customers to use? That seems like a much better option.

Perfect Time To Start Learning

There is no better way to promote staying in school and working hard than by misspelling words on your school supplies advertisements. We’re sure these parents bought their children double supplies just to be sure they study extra hard in spelling class this year.

But What About Customers?

Does this mean you’re only allowed to use the bathroom if you come dressed up in a costume? That seems a little silly unless of course, it’s Halloween, then it’s totally understandable. On any regular day, though, I think it’s safe to assume this store owner meant to write the word “customers”. Better luck next time.

Sharing Patients

Maybe this was sent from one doctor to another thanking them for sharing some of their patients! If this wasn’t the case, and I’m assuming it wasn’t, this was an unfortunate misspelling incident on a public sign. At least they tried, right? Have patience, you’ll learn how to spell eventually.

Instant Pot Thief

I thought about buying an Instant Pot soon, but now that I know it comes with this stainless steal, I’m not sure about it. If it came with stainless steel, I’d buy it in a heartbeat, but I’m not sure I want this stainless steal in my house!

Admitting Defeat

How likely is it that the person who made this item is still employed? I bet the odds are slim. This person had one job, and they couldn’t even manage to spell the word “bird” correctly. Talk about a huge mistake; where’s spellcheck when you need it?

Stay In Shcool

I suppose that’s one way to spell it. If you say it out loud with this spelling, it does sound kind of fun, actually… In any case, though, this is definitely not how you properly spell the word “school”. We sincerely hope this was fixed before any children learn how to spell the word incorrectly.

Half Lucky, Half Unlucky

Okay, so your car gets towed, that’s unfortunate. But it’s not every day that you get paid for your car being towed! Although it will more than likely cost you much more than $50 to get your car back, at least you had a small win for the day.

Free Fee

So is it free to join or is there a fee? This fitness club needs to get their story straight if they think they will get anyone to sign up for a membership! This is a huge oxymoron, but also maybe it’s secret brilliant advertising, forcing people to call and find out what the situation is. It’s a mystery.

Talented Paper

Wow, get this paper a record deal, it has some serious talent! This paper can rap all of my favorite songs all while WRAPPING my holiday gifts- amazing. Truly one of a kind, you’ll never find wrapping paper that can rap quite as well as this paper can.

The Most Commonly Used Room

I bet this bored room is always packed in the office for everyone to go in when they just aren’t feeling motivated. An executive bored room sounds pretty fancy; I wonder if they have snacks. It sounds way more fun than an executive board room!

More Great Paper

What’s with all this awesome paper coming into existence? Red hot chilly paper? Count me in! But like, how spicy is this paper, I’m a bit sensitive to harsh flavors… Do you think the Red Hot Chili Peppers enjoy red hot chilly paper? I bet they do.

No Living With Dirty Hands

What is this, a bathroom for ghost employees? We’re all familiar with part of yourself figuratively dying when you’ve spent too many hours at work in one day, but to say that washing your hands will bring you back to life may be a bit of a reach here.

So Close, But Missed The Entrance

This is the perfect example of needing that red line underneath your barely-misspelled words so you know to fix your error. This person was so very close to getting it right, but just missed the mark by one letter. Hopefully they’ll pay better attention next time they’re entering a sign-making job.

April Fools?

Oh boy, I sincerely hope this was meant to be a joke about coming back to school and learning. If not, I highly suggest every parent transfer their children to a different school, perhaps one where spelling lessons are taught properly, both to students and staff. Let’s put the brakes on these spelling errors.

The Exact Mistake

What’s more of an inconvenience, being limited in your payment options or having to read this sign five times before you are able to understand what’s going on? I suppose it is pronounced this way out loud, but really, is this how the employee thought the word “exact” was spelled?

Just Imagine

When I read this sign my mind immediately starts to picture mountains of snacks; more snacks then I could ever imagine myself imagining. So, while this sign truly just makes no sense whatsoever, they did get their point across. Props to you, AM/PM, for the excellent imagination.

A Day For Staff To Learn How To Spell

Honestly, let’s just keep our fingers crossed that the staff at this “scool” either just ran out of letters and used their best resources, used the staff development day to catch up on their grammar skills, or a little bit of both. Again, parents, let’s reconsider where you’re sending your children to learn all day.

Your vs. You’re

This one is just a violation of basic grammar rules. There’s nothing more painful than someone old enough to be posting signs like this in public places not knowing how to spell or use proper grammar. Next time you try to be intimidating, try to do it properly.

Question Of The Day

The only thing that would be better than a typo like this, would be having the ability to laugh at a typo like this after a horribly long and stressful day. On one hand, yes I’m sure I want to EXIST, but am I sure I want to EXIT? This question could be tough to answer…
