Common mistakes I make

I make a lot of stupid mistakes while I type. I decided to point a few of them out to you so if you see them you know I'm not retarded I just make mistakes a lot.

  • A lot of times you will see my sentence end with a 1. This isn't supposed to be there. That means my pinky finger got a little lazy with the shift key and I didn't hold it down enough to succeed in placing a (!) point there.
  • That's werid. I do that one a bout a thousand times a day. No matter how many times I go back and retype it I can never seem to spell werid (see) werid (again see) weird the right way. I guess maybe this is just because I'm kind of werid!
  • I type oyu instead of you. Why I do this I DON'T KNOW!
  • I often start a new word before I finish my last. IE I would typel ike this
  • I type the first letter of the spelling of a number instead of a number. This means you often see, I have f apples instead of 5. I also do this often with n for 9. I do the reverse too with 9. Often I write this is 9eat!
  • I have had to actually concentrate and go back and edit to make all my damn I's capitalized.
  • I don't know how to spell definitaly to save my life. Definitly? Defiinetly? Dammit how do you spell this fucking word! The worst part is I'm usually so far off spell check doesn't even know how to help me.
So there oyu (seee!!!!) I really am a moron disguised as a functioning adult with major help from spell check.

I don't know how to spell necessary or exercize. Exersize. Excersize. Holy crap! How do you spell it????

And I make most of the same mistakes you do except for the number thing (but now that you've brought it up. I'm sure it will happen).

I'm always typing p for 9 and s for 5. Probably because I never learned how to type without looking at the keyboard, and they sorta look alike.

P.S. It's definitely.

I do the same thing with definitely. I had to look at the last person's comment to check the spelling when typing this. I also could not spell convenience correctly either. Don't even get me started on Wednesday, February, or words like physical or psychic, etc)...I think it is just a mental block you get against certain words. That's why they invented spell check.

I do lots of stupid things too. I always misspell "becuase", because I am a moron. My biggest thing is that I tend to leave words out. For example, " Yesterday I to the store." Obviously I left out the word "went." Except when I proof read my post, I won't even notice my mistake. I just read it the way I had intended for it to sound.
