- What do you often misread?
That and “Extreme fishing with Robson Green” always seems to catch me off guard.
I nearly spat my cornflakes when I first stumbled across that on the tv guide.
also used to get a bit worried in HMV when spotting anything by Dido. for some reason my mind would always slip a ‘L’ in there.Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Warehouse for whorehouse
A friend’s grown up dyslexic son had to write his first report for a new employer. He’s pretty much on top of his dyslexia but this was the first time he’d needed to produce written work in an employment rather than educational environment and obviously pretty nervous about the whole thing. A bit of mis-click when spell checking changed every instance of ‘warehouse’ in the document to ‘whorehouse’Posted 4 years agoseaversMember
My iPhone keeps asking for my Postcode to unlock it.

I always get Burns night and Bums night, or Burns Unit or Bums unit at the hospital confused.
So if you get Bum Burns on Burns night and have to go to the Bums unit you are going to be in a right pickle.Posted 4 years agoOnzadogSubscriber

A girl I used to work with once left me a post-it note. I’d not been there long and she was suggesting I read some guidance notes before a site visit. Her note read “THOUGHT YOU MIGHT LIKE A QUICK FLICK BEFORE WE HEAD OUT”.Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber
I have a friend in East Lothian who stays in a country house with a sign at the end of the drive. The house name? CLINT, even in a lower case it’s open to misreading.
Yeah, there’s a magazine (or was, I think it just folded) with the same name and same problem. Made me laugh when I saw it, the ‘misread title’ gag has been a running joke in SFX magazine for years.Posted 4 years ago
