And, BTW, the list printed on the side of the box had "Dining Room" spelled correctly.

There used to be a store near me that for over a year had a sign out front advertising their "Gran Oppening".

I die just a little bit inside every time I see someone post about their pet chiwawa.

When I was a Physics Teaching Assistant, grading papers and lab reports from clueless undergrads, I once encountered the spelling excelleration.

After marking up his mathematical errors, I crossed out the offending word and wrote Accelent! underneath.

Great, now I have the 1812 Overture as an earworm.

A previous boss of mine - a fairly high level administrator - placed a hand-written sign above a clogged sink notifying all that the plummer has been called.
