I have a handicap wich I wish would get some sort of official recognision. I can not spell. I spell words how they sound to me. I also pronounce words incorrectly and this exasserbates my spelling problems. I wish I could claim an official disability like dickslexia, but I can not. If it were not for spell check I would not be able to blog at all. For this post I have turned off spell check just to make a point.
There is no spell check on Facebook or on comment dialog boxes. Because of this I often withhold comments and stay out of discussions because my poor spelling always illicits responses like, “You dumb jerk you can’t even spell why should anyone give any credability too your opinions?
Why is being a gud speller sew dam impotant?
Lots of people had trouble driving cars. They invented automatic transmissions. Lots of people had trouble with computers. They invented the “Geek Squad.” People hate manual labor, we allow illegal immigrants. People can’t cook, we have take out.
Why can’t someone invent fail safe spell check on everything?
My sister-in-law, Judy, has never misspelled a word in her entire life. Does that make her smart? Ok that is a really bad example. Hitler was renouned as an excellent speller; did that make him a good person? Einstein was a lousey speller. Did you know that “Energy equals Mass times the velocity of light squared” is really spelled E=msea2? Does that make Einstein stupid? I thimk knot!
In today’s world, fat people are excused…they have a matabulism problem. People with bad grammer are excused…they come from a disadvantaged family. Drug abusers and alchoholics get a pass…it is an addiction…poor thing, send him to rehabilitation.
Everyone with a problem these days has an excuse and is forgiven; everyone except poor spellers. No body walks up to a fat person and slaps a donut out of their hand. People never laugh at someone with a birth defect. Even people with bad higene are simply pitied. Why is it OK for someone to say, “You dumb jerk…you can’t even spell?”
It is just not fare!
