Last week me and hubby went to Best Buy. Our cell phone contract was expiring and we wanted to switch providers. (Can you hear me now?) We sat there quite a while as the salesman checked our credit and got the paperwork ready.
While we were waiting I looked around at merchandise I would someday would like to buy. I looked around at the signs.
It was then that I saw it. A TYPO! On a sign telling people Best Buy is good at handling problems.
Except "handling" was spelled "handeling."
Before saying anything I made sure I knew it was wrong. I admit I rely heavily on Spell Check. After convincing myself I knew the correct spelling, I pointed it out.
The salesman looked at the sign. Then he called the manager over to see it. I asked if I could get a discount for being able to spell better than whoever had made the sign.
They smiled and said no. Sheesh.
