I used to enjoy watching a school spelling be. To see young people spell words I had never hear of made it heartening to know they cared about their education.

Unfortunately texting has created a whole new generation who spell it as it sounds. The following is a perfect example of what we are seeing more and more of these days. Don't get me wrong, I am not belittling the poster. I am sure he/she is doing the best as they have been taught.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

My guess is posted from a "smart" phone from the lack of CAPITAL letters, fat fingered spellings, and short sentences. It's easier to hit send than proof read and correct.

Lots of spelling errors, in the Craig's List postings, here. Sometimes, I read them, just to get a chuckle. I've forwarded some, to a former English teacher, for entertainment or harassment. Ed
