Initiative, whenever i type that at work I'll usually get it wrong. However, about 8 out of 10 times I get Schrwarzenegger right.

Karen said...

i also cannot type the word initiative (that took like three tries). also words with double letters or that i think should have double letters. I always try to put an extra m in amendment and typing recommend takes a few tries too. i always want to put in an extra c.

Beth said...

I have a lot. All of Karen's except initiative. I always want to spell "devastating" with two Es.

maintenance. I always want to spell it maintanence. To get around it though, I call it "the help."

I knew someone who spelled committment (<--- like that) on his match.com intro. Freudian Slip perhaps?

Spelling is one of my pet peeves, but have trouble typing the single/double, double/double letter words like harassment and embarrassing without feeling the need to run spell check.

Definitely and occurrence.

(i totes just spelled check those two)

Accommodate...can never remember if it has two Cs and two Ms. I sometimes have trouble with words like traveling, canceling...I want to put two Ls in there.

Slightly related note to all sports commentators: Resiliency is not a good word...shouldn't even be a word at all. The word is resilience. Resiliency (even though it is a word, I just checked) sounds like something Fred Durst would say. Thank you.

Commitment. I'm always confused with the double m and want to put a double t. Can't spell, can't handle it.

I also tend to mistype my name. Perhaps my parents should have named me Tamiak--life would be so much easier.

Convenience.

I NEVER get it right...and sometimes the way I spell, spellcheck can't even figure it out.

Mike said...

Thanks Brian Regan.
