    Once I can understand but multiple offences is rather sketchy. Whomever typed that needs to update their dictionary.

    It happens, but as a business owner you need to double check things like that!

    Gotta be some kind of copy and paste thing going on, theres no way they'd type this 3 or more times for that page.
    I sure they hope they have a good laugh over this and not fire someone or anything .

    Why fix it, the purpose of an ad is to draw attention to the product.... Success!

    good thing none of us have ever made a typing or spelling mistake.:rolleyes::D

    you could laugh at every post I do here. I miss words in sentences. never type them. misspell and my grammar/grammer is horrible, and that's just being nice.

    I've been trying my best to catch all of my typos because it was partly me ( mostly my last defective phone though ) , but It was bad enough at one point I was accused of doing it on purpose and I'm pretty sure there was a thread in one of the sections dedicated to hating me because of it. Perused it once and it was a pretty savage attack for sure.

    Can't really blame them considering the number of typos I was making and my poor forum etiquette before.

    What confuses me the most is that almost all devices have a dictionary or auto correct. It's understandable for one mistake like that to slip by but that person must have that word loaded in their personal dictionary for it to go unnoticed. Even my 95 year old grandmother could have corrected that with her phone or tablet.

    they really arent that great. I had to train mine to spell y'all correctly. it kept trying to make it without the apostrophe and spelled like this... ya'll. which is wrong as it's a contraction of you and all. so y'all. that's one example. there are many.

    Auto-correct has me laughing and/or fuming most every day. I use the voice dictation a lot and if I don't have my glasses on to proof what I'm about to send it can/has been very laughable/embarrassing.

    Speaking of auto correct/dictionaries, I had a secretary at one time that would let the auto correct, "correct" engineering terms I had used in specs I had written. None of these engineering terms were in the auto correct of course, so it made for some interesting "corrections". She was convinced it was smarter than me. She was extremely resistant to ignoring the auto correct. People like her will one day welcome the rise of the machines :eek:

    There is another forum where a member has as his signature line, 'Dear auto-correct, I'm tried of all your shirt!':D
