Even with spell check, my students manage to misspell words in their assignments. That appears to carry over into the workplace, as evidenced by the following.
A police officer was sent to report on a bomb attack. The scene was a cluttered mess of dead bodies and body parts. He started making notes to document the crime scene.
He came across a head and wrote in his notebook: "Head on bullevard". Then he realized his spelling error and tried again.
Next, he wrote "Head on bouelevard." Again, he realized the spelling was incorrect.
By now he was quite frustrated. He looked around and, when nobody was watching, kicked the head to the side of the road.
His next entry read "Head in gutter."
Not Past the Lips.
