Should've gone to scool.
Being able to fluently communicate with other people is one of the big things that distinguishes ourselves as human. Because of this, having good grammar is of the utmost importance. As said by French Renaissance writer Michel de Montaigne, “the greater part of the world’s troubles are due to questions of grammar.” It’s probably a bit of an over exaggeration, but there can be dire consequences when it comes to easily avoidable miscommunication. For example, the Vasa warship of 1628 sank only a half-mile into her maiden voyage. For years, people puzzled over how it could have happened, until archaeologists discovered that one side was thicker than other. One group of builders had been using Swedish feet, while the others had been using Amsterdam feet, to disastrous consequences.
The entries on this list didn’t lead to anything quite as dire as sinking a warship, but they were probably the cause of some very red faces. From mislabelled food products, to educational institutions that struggle with their signs, here are twenty-one spelling mistakes that happened at the absolute worst time possible.
