I couldn't find a thread for Embarrassing Spelling Errors Within One's Own Family, or Failings of the American Higher Education System, so here I am. This weekend my mom received a thank you card from my cousin, who graduated from college with a teaching degree in April. A sample offering from the card:

"Thanks so much for the gift! [It was a check] It will definately come in handy!"

Sigh.

I'm a pretty good natural speller, and bad spelling bugs the heck out of me, but that word gave me trouble for years. I had a huge mental block with it.

On the other hand, at least I knew I had a problem with it, so I'd look it up all the time.
