Does poor spelling piss you off?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. Just wandering around the jobcentre website and saw this pile of bollocks.

    Poor spelling irritates me more than the ex wife.

    I hate teenagers as well!

  4. Indeed it does, particularly when spelt the yank way. However, normally when I see bad spelling on websites such as the BBC news webpages, I use their contact form to report it (as per their wishes). Did you contact the site owner to inform them of their mistakes?

    Spelling used to bother me, when I had little else to do with my time.

    But then I realised my aspiration wasn't to become a blue-rinsed Daily Mail reader going about my life tutting at everyone and everything, whilst ferrying endless bags full of cat food tins for tiddles, back and forth to my damp and lonely bedsit during my twighlight days.

    No - what really grips my shit in the world of written communication is when I get end of course reports for my new soldiers just posted in from Phase 2 establishments only to realise they have simply 'cut and paste' their name into the 'bog standard' appraisal - and not even bothered to check the sex of the soldier in the process.

    At a forward up-tempo unit preparing for Ops I could maybe forgive - but in a trg establishment where the permanent staff have knack all to do all day except populate their 'hectic' Outlook calendars with golfing trips and charity bike rides (don't forget to CC the CO so he can see what a 'good egg' you are), whilst spending the rest of the time reflecting on why the field force has posted them away - it is pretty unforgiveable.

    Or the head dobber OC at Brecon who managed to mix my report up and my name changed completely about halfway down the page. This was before mass use of computers so I reckon him and his clerk were just basic cunts!
    Still got the promotion though although I suspect that was in spite of my report rather than because of it!

    Agree to a certain extent m'learned friend, but don't you also think spelling errors such as those shown are also indicative of laziness? I mean, how difficult is it to use spellcheck?

    The sex thing is also so very wrong, my youngest sprog Alexander would regularly get comments on his school report from heads of year/dept etc stating how well she has done this year. I mean there are about 1000 kids in a school so 200 in a year and 30 plus in a class yet no one ever checks?
