    I hate when businesses deliberately spell things wrong. Yesterday I saw a shop down the gold coast that was a "booteek". Ugh. And there's a coffee shop near us that uses "k" instead of "c", for example Kora's Koffees and Kakes. I won't shop there out of principle.

    I get incredibly frustrated when I see grammatical errors in the paper or advertisements. A journalist or copywriter should get it right as words are their business!

    One I see often is the misuse of enquiry/inquiry. Gah!

    Or a rather large certain online blog/news website who never proof read, and their articles and headlines are constantly full of spelling and grammatical errors

    There was an engraver where I used to live and it was called Persinality Engravers. On principle I would not use them because if they cant spell their own name right, what hope do they have of engraving an item correctly.
