    That lucky Kid, he gets so much stuff to himself!

    Yes, it should be "Kids' Dentist". To write "Kids Dentist" would be the same as "Children Dentist", which isn't quite right.

    In a book I'm reading, I just saw: 'and properly great your uncle'

    Seriously, why so many mistakes in published books?!

    Because they're hiring the wrong people as editors OR the book is so boring that the editors didn't read the whole thing.

    I read 'Notorious Nineteen' by Janet Evanovich last week. 2 typos. Annoyed me immensely, because I'm pedantic

    I received a Worker's Comp Certificate at work the other day, which advised the patient was being 'reffered for sykological testing'.

    It was written by a doctor. A doctor!

    I have two funny ones to share with you -even if they were written by six year old girls lol! The kids in my class had to finish this sentence: "I went to the park and..." .

    Child 1 wrote "I went to the park and I rid my ****" which after I stopped giggling realised she meant she went to the park and rode her bike (b/d confusion is always funny!).

    Child 2 wrote "I went to the park and I played on the monkey ****".

    I love the innocent spelling mistakes of little ones!!! Adults on the other hand.....
