Spell it wrong at your peril

Words have power; misspelled words have the powere to make you look stupid. Texting aside, you need to spell correctly. It’s a competitive world out there. Somebody else can … spell correctly, that is.

I recently received some writing in which quizzes was spelled quizes and knowledgeable was spelled knowledgable. Misspelling undercuts your message. It’s difficult to take the poor speller seriously.

It’s never been easier to spell correctly. Use spell check – although pay attention to too, to, two; their, there, they’re; and your, you’re.

Buy a dictionary. There is a ton of good information in the book and everything is spelled right.

Yours in waste management, WMW
