Beginning today, the official spelling of friend is firend. OK? Thanks. This way Bossy won’t have to keep correcting herself and sister mercy why is it always this word?
It’s not so much a matter of dyslexia as it is exlyasdi.
Also Gah, if it’s not too much trouble, can you change the word just to juts? And how about obviously to obviosuly.
P.S. Bossy’s council may have more words to add to this Name Change Edict, dear Gah, so please read Bossy’s comment section. Not that you don’t always! Because: Gahhhhh!

I’m changing the name of facebook to FACEWOOK.
I really need to bookmark facvebook. faveniil.
monnik saysNovember 11, 2009 at 10:46 am
Because needs to change to becasue.
I type it wrong every. single. time.
The Great Getzby saysNovember 11, 2009 at 10:47 am
My life would be infinitely easier this semester if bureaucracy were spelled breuacuraycy. Because that’s what I normally get from my fingers on the first try.
Laurie saysNovember 11, 2009 at 10:53 am
I work in an accounting firm ….can we plseas (that was totally spontanious (!) right there) ….danm didn’t know how many typos I make when I don’t correct them!! …….change it TAX RETRUNS??? I type it like that every time. Makes me wonder how many RETRUNS have slipped through.
BOSSY saysNovember 11, 2009 at 10:55 am
Wait – Gah – greta! Please change great to greta! How could Bossy forget! Thank you, gah. You’re so greta.
p.j. saysNovember 11, 2009 at 10:59 am
How about ocasion, because, as my Grandpa insisted, double consonants are wasteful? And I can never remember which one gets doubled when I write occasion . . .or ocassion. Praises on spellcheck.
BOSSY saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:00 am
Oh, and dear gah: bedsides. Instead of besides. Despite what P.J.’s grandpa says, the extra ‘d’ just seems to make so much visual sense there, eh?
No dissresspecct, P.J.’s Grandpa.
FL Liz saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:03 am
Goofed more often than anything else for me…………the should = teh.
Kristi Young saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:06 am
Can we please change any word with the “for” group – like “for” and “form”?. My left hand must be a little faster than my right, because I get “fro” and “from” every time!
Sissy in Texas saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:07 am
My life would be so much easier if my mother had named me Shaorn.
Acher saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:08 am
Wierd and weird should be interchangable, because I just can’t ever remember which is which.
But really? Iron should be irno.
krg saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:17 am
the end of friend is end.
anne marie in philly saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:22 am
thought = thouhgt, please = plaese, fight = fihgt, like = liek, first = frist, giant = gaint, truth = turth, and = adn (and so on into infinity)…thank gah for spellchecker!
Meg at the Members Lounge saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:32 am
An idiot boss from another era used to write that his employees were so “conscious” in their yearly reviews.
I was extremely conscientious about not correcting the toad.
g saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:43 am
I am a pretty good speller – but why aren’t my fingers?
Amy saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:46 am
In my frequent reading of blogs, I’ve seen “teh” so often that I wondered if it was a secret, special blog thing that I just didn’t understand. I see now that it is merely a typo. Or is it?
ris saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:47 am
the=teh every. single. time.
Sheri saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:54 am
vacum and restaraunt! Can not spell them EVER!!!
Smalltown Mom saysNovember 11, 2009 at 12:10 pm
I vote for TEH, too!
ScottsdaleGirl saysNovember 11, 2009 at 12:16 pm
for = fro maybe = mabey and I am sure there are more but those popped out of my head first.
Melissa saysNovember 11, 2009 at 12:17 pm
definitely the = teh
and for me WISH should iwsh. I ALWAYS spell that one wrong the first go-round.
joeinvegas saysNovember 11, 2009 at 12:33 pm
Sorry, after you change the spelling you’ll find your fingers messing the new way up too.
tina de luxe saysNovember 11, 2009 at 12:33 pm
The german word “nicht” (meaning “not”) is what I need to be changed, cause it always comes out as nciht. And I think it might be a kind of Freudian slip not to be able to say no more insistently.
Martha in Kansas saysNovember 11, 2009 at 12:49 pm
Please add “univresity” to our dictionary. Also can we change “united” to “untied”. My students would be happier. (“I live in the Untied States and I fly on Untied Airlines.” Kind of apt at times.) Anothre (oh, there’s one!) student calls Applebee’s “Apple Pies” and I’m ok with that one too.
La Suzette saysNovember 11, 2009 at 12:55 pm
hospital = hosptial
They are close enough, Gah. Also, I vote for liek, frist, teh. Let’s just make form and from interchangeable and be done with it.
Pam saysNovember 11, 2009 at 1:06 pm
And Always offcie…change that one as well.
Nancy saysNovember 11, 2009 at 1:14 pm
“Public” = pubic. Very unfortunate, as I use the word a lot in my professional life. “Public,” I mean. Not “pubic.”
Zannah saysNovember 11, 2009 at 1:24 pm
yeha for yeah. It’s sometimes appropriate (and I can’t count how many times it just took me to get “appropriate” right just then!), if you pronounce it “yee-haw”.
The Other Laura saysNovember 11, 2009 at 1:26 pm
Could we please use the words form and from interchangeably?
Carroll saysNovember 11, 2009 at 1:56 pm
Silly Bossy. It’s not “juts” it’s “jsut”. And I should know…I teach wirting to college kisd!
Avitable saysNovember 11, 2009 at 1:57 pm
I keep typing “I fucking hate you” instead of “Sincerely” in business emails. My damn clumsy fingers!
Dana saysNovember 11, 2009 at 1:57 pm
What about organe for orange? Something my grade four teacher taught me that has stuck this long. If you ‘fri’ your FRIend, it will be the ‘end’ of your FRIEND.
Jacquie saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:04 pm
Well, there’s teh obvious. Also, I can’t write “sushi” without typing “sushit”, which doesn’t sound nearly as appealing
Tree saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:18 pm
Probably should be “prolly”. The way my co-worker pronounces it. Much easier to type.
janny226 saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:19 pm
I’m soo with monnik on becuase. And teh. Adn. And then the embarrassing little ones I usually miss in emails to DB’s etachers like “of” for “on” and stuff like that.
Connie Harbor saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:25 pm
And don’t forget: teh/hte, hosue, adn, ect., taht, and the ever popular, taht. Studies have shown that our minds read the words correctly, so WTH? H’it don’t make no nevermind nohow!
klcrab saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:28 pm
taht teh left hand is soo mcuh faster than teh right hand.
It makes mcuh sense.
BossysMom saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:31 pm
I don’t want to commmit.
Big Dot saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:32 pm
Please, ‘inot’ – it’s not much to ask.
kelly saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:43 pm
Client = clinet. I have even taken to speaking it that way, and said it to my dad, who is now completely unable to type it correctly.
BH saysNovember 11, 2009 at 2:58 pm
teh (of course)
How about Gerogia?
GrandeMocha saysNovember 11, 2009 at 3:24 pm
affect and effect – can’t keep ’em straight
appriciate instead of appreciate
Dash saysNovember 11, 2009 at 4:25 pm
Three words: wurd, wird and werd.
Jen W. saysNovember 11, 2009 at 4:43 pm
I’d like to change the name Brian to Brain. I don’t think too many Brians would mind.
Christine saysNovember 11, 2009 at 5:16 pm
Oh my gosh! I had no idea these were such common typos! I alway thought it was just me typing faster than I think. Since so many other people are also typing teh, adn, taht and from, maybe we need to change the keyboard order. Because it’s obviously the fault of the layout, not our fingers!
Rorrington the Fireman saysNovember 11, 2009 at 5:47 pm
Anyone else get “Thnaks” when meaning “Thanks”? And I thnak everyone (Wow. And THAT wasn’t even intentional!) when I sign off my e-mails and they’ve helped me out in some way. So, “Thnaks” for asking, Bossy!
BOSSY saysNovember 11, 2009 at 6:47 pm
Would andyway be too much to ask?
jp saysNovember 11, 2009 at 7:19 pm
BEST THING EVER………..
spell chk on The Well Read Hostess’s Blog!

My husband made Detroit DETRIOT in a commercial – – – that was aired.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysNovember 11, 2009 at 8:50 pm
My list is too long, but a high school friend of mine had a boyfriend named Brain, except he was really Brian and there was no brain anywhere in the equation.
Serena saysNovember 11, 2009 at 10:30 pm
Oh yeah, Thnaks is a good one! And how about throwing in prenatal instead of parental? Your Ten Word Tuesday post just brought that one to my attention – I clearly see “Parental” but I read “Prenatal.” Ah, but this is not a spelling issue, is it? Maybe that migraine I just had scrambled things up in my brain. Thank you for your good wishes, BTW!
Shelley saysNovember 11, 2009 at 10:32 pm
I think we should change the word “lose” to “loose.” Everyone else on the interwebs already has. As in, “Oh my gah, I really need to loose some weight.”
Cupcake Murphy saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:08 pm
I want to change the spelling of AnnCoulter to Jack Ass.
CJ saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:39 pm
teh, adn, taht, fro, ot, jsut, untied and thnaks. ‘Type’ often ends up as ‘tpe’, my finger just doesn’t reach far enough to get the y. Any word that ends in ‘gh’ comes out as ‘ght’. I had to backup and fix the word ‘enough’ in the previous sentence and this one. A word I type a lot is ‘environment’ and it comes out as ‘enviornment’ every time.
Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy saysNovember 11, 2009 at 11:45 pm
LOL at Avitable! I think excercize should be spelled as it sounds. Not that I use the word a lot, but still.
Brenda saysNovember 12, 2009 at 12:05 am
and I thought it was just my dyslexia….LOL
I agree–my right hand is much faster than my left hand. The mistakes I make are usually right handed mistakes.
An easy way to remember restaurant=there is no U in rant. I have had to learn a lot of little “tricks” to remember how to spell things. It’s one of the major problems I have with my dyslexia.
maria from nj saysNovember 12, 2009 at 12:10 am
meterologist. And I have a friend who is one!

#53 – that made me laugh, but I refuse to type L O L.
Dawn in Austin saysNovember 12, 2009 at 2:07 am
I loev that Bossy is getting some words changed around here.
Amy saysNovember 12, 2009 at 2:45 am
I thougth I was the only one with typing dyslesxia. Love not chanigng anything when typeing. Hmmm. Ok, I don’t love it much. My foe is from/form because then spell check doesn’t catch it.
Lis saysNovember 12, 2009 at 3:10 am
teh (the), fro (for) and, my favorite at work…agreeemnt.
habanerogal saysNovember 12, 2009 at 6:55 am
I’m with Avitable on this one. If only our fingers did what we wanted them to all of the time. But for the love there are 3 forms of the word to (two and too) but nobody ever uses them correctly anymore The End
Helen saysNovember 12, 2009 at 8:12 am
I’m the world’s worst typist so commonly make almost all of the mistakes mentioned about. Also Spet for Sept. Always. Grrr.
Gail K. saysNovember 12, 2009 at 10:47 am
let’s add Thrusday to the list. Because by THURSDAY I am THRU!
Sewmouse saysNovember 12, 2009 at 10:58 am
I work for a company that makes screws and bolts. I hereby annonce the propler spelling is “Farsteners”
That is all.
Dharmamama saysNovember 12, 2009 at 12:35 pm
“Youtube” always comes out like that first when I type it. And, I think it could make for an entertaining site on its own!
Jen saysNovember 12, 2009 at 3:26 pm
Definitely ‘taht’ and ‘Royal Aok’ instead of ‘that’ and ‘Royal Oak’. It’s very sad – my fingers obviously work much faster than my brain.
Sue saysNovember 12, 2009 at 10:11 pm
Aww come on the word is wen. Who needs the stinkin H
krazy kris saysNovember 12, 2009 at 10:13 pm
Without even trying, I will now type the words that for over 30 years have eluded my ability to type correctly unless I really focus (like, who the heck does that anyways?)

Oh geez, I have several of these I have to retype EVERY TIME. The most common – students: studnets. Every.single.time.
Sandra saysNovember 19, 2009 at 8:09 pm
Thank you for making me feel less alone in my mispoelled world. I hate double constantns too. Oh, and can we please get rid of their there and they’re. I often type the wrong one.
