As a teaching assistant, I do a lot of grading. This means I see quite a few hilarious mistakes.
For example, a student recently wrote that "the goal is a decrease of waist around the world" instead of "decrease of waste." Also, the phrase "have a lasting effect on families and their livelihoods" is much more humorous when it reads "have a lasting effect on families and their lively hoods"
I'm sure others have come across similar instances, looking forward to reading your answers!
I recall when I was at school my friend wrote on a music exam paper, "Beethoven never married but just went from landlady to landlady"
That's actually pretty funny! Lol
My first year teaching music I did a unit on music history. Have you ever given a music history test to eight year olds? Never again! Somehow Beethoven ended up being born in Kentucky and writing Can Can!
I've never taught 8 year olds, but I remember a hilarious - or maybe scary - multiple-choice quiz that was given to kids last Christmas and reported in a British newspaper. Asked whose birthday Christmas was, one in four said Simon Cowell. The same percentage also thought Jesus was born in Brentwood, Essex. One in ten kids thought Barack Obama was one of Santa's reindeer.

Would you prefer other hubbers notify you of spelling errors or not?We all make mistakes from time to time so where do you stand on this?Would it offend you? Would you be thankful?

Do hubs with spelling errors make you think less of a hub?Is anyone else distracted by a hub that has decent content but several spelling errors or grammatical errors?

Does bad spelling bother you? Would it put you off reading the text if a lot of the words were spelt incorrectly?
