My grammar has a long way to go, but the good thing is I am aware of it. I guess that is a good thing

Spellcheck and even grammar suggestion software are ubiquitous and cheap (or free) so in this day and age there’s no good reason for a litany of easily correctable mistakes.
It would be difficult to get my mind wrapped around being a teacher these days with the challenges they face.

I did not realize the original post was partly about copying the intellectual property. That adds another layer to the mix.

Quite a few years ago, back in the days of dot-matrix printers and 5000 page boxes of form-fed paper, I was unpacking a large dot-matrix heavy duty printer. Printed on the cardboard used to secure the printhead from moving during shipping were these words written in what looked like an inked single letter hand printing set. ARU-TIS-AYEE. Several of use looked at it for some time before it dawned on us that someone at the factory in China was attempting to communicate with the recipient in English the concept of discarding the cardboard before using the printer. They were attempting to print "THROW THIS AWAY" but ARU-TIS-AYEE was as close as they could get to it. I guess they had taken that famous self paced learning English course, "Hooked on Phonics" or something like it and were then promoted to the North American Marketing team. lol.

my fiancée's nephew got married a couple of years ago. he told the baker he wanted "just married" on the cake. apparently new to the whole wedding thing, the baker did what he thought the customer asked: he put "married" on the cake, and nothing else.

one of our teachers quite accidentally coined a new word while writing our school safety plan:
we now know when to "evaculate" the building.

but the best was one of our APs who intended to write "warm body count" but omitted a very important letter and in doing so, enshrined his name in why it's best to proofread emails.
