My younger brother is going to start high school next year and since my family has lost all hope in the public school system, we are currently shopping around for a private high school. When I say “we are currently shopping around,” I really mean “my mom asked me to do a Google search for schools in our area.”
During my research, I was on the website of a particular school and everything about the school seemed great. It wasn’t until I came across a misspelling of the word “English” that I started to worry and got the urge to bang my head on the keyboard and have the writer of the website defenestrated. I’m sure it was nothing more than a typo, but the first words that came out of my mouth when my mother asked me which school I liked best were “DON’T YOU THINK A SCHOOL WHO BRAGS ABOUT HOW WONDERFUL THEY ARE SHOULD MAKE SURE TO SPELL THE WORD ‘ENGLISH’ CORRECTLY?”
The fact that they misspelled a basic word is not even the greatest issue. My issue is that they managed to misspell a word even though ALL COMPUTERS TELL YOU WHEN YOU SPELL SOMETHING WRONG. The red squiggly line that appears underneath awkward-looking words is not there for decoration. Please, for the preservation of the English language, right click on the squiggly line (unless it’s a green line. In that case, don’t listen to the computer’s suggestions. More on this later). That’s my story. Glad I got that out.
