There’s this weird thing that can happen when you’ve heard a word or a phrase a lot but you’ve never actually seen it written, then you yourself go to write it for the first time.

Sometimes it just results in what looks like a typo, but other times, it’s the funniest thing in the world. It’s most understandable when you’re dealing with, say, a foreign phrase (English speakers trying to phonetically stab at “bon appetit” has become an entire meme on its own, for example.) But sometimes, when the word of phrase if from your native language, and you STILL manage to get it so incredibly wrong, the best you can expect is some hard stares from the folks around you.

And maybe you should read a little more often, lest you end up on one of these Reddit posts.
