‘SANDWITCHES’, REALLY? CHRIST JESUS! YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! NO WONDER YOUR SHOP CLOSED!

.

I really was amused, though, a stranger passing by, witnessing my reaction to the misspelling of ‘sandwiches’*, may have, and understandably so, thought I either having what is commonly referred to as ‘a fit’, or even maybe, as well, going ‘out of my damn mind’. They are, for most, hard to distinguish between, and, if, while out and about in the southwestern desert of the United States you happen upon a man along side the road who appears to be ‘losing his shit’ you best just keep driving.

* according to gingersoftware.com ‘spelling book’, “other users”, as they call them, have misspelled ‘sandwich’ in the following ways and at the accompanying percentages:

  • sandwhich – 20.94%
  • sandwitch – 14.53%
  • sanwich – 5.13%
  • soundwich – 4.27%
  • sandwish – 3.85%
  • sandwic – 2.99%
  • sandwiche – 2.99%
  • sadwich – 2.56%
  • Other – 42.74%

Interesting, for sure, but, troubling as well when one, perhaps such as yourself, thinks too long on what the possible “Other” 42.74% misspellings of ‘sandwich’ could possibly be.
