Regular Spelling

Five Letters

So I finally got the update to Skewed posted, after working on it for two weeks and scrambling all yesterday to find a way to defeat the invincible boss I had inadvertently created. That lifts a big load off my back, leaving me free to do other stuff now. If you're following that story, you can check it out over on the PokeGym.

So I overheard someone at my work today say something unusual. He said, "I don't know how to spell 'pilot.'"

Pilot? Come on, its five letters!

I'm not quite sure why he'd be needing to write pilot in the first place, but I was quite shocked. Its a very basic word, and should be a no-brainer. Heck, if you do somehow manage to spell it wrong, Google will correct you in every single misspelling I can think of (which isn't a lot, for obvious reasons).

Pilot! Pea-Eye-Ell-Oh-Tee!

Where do some people learn their language? Sheesh!
