Why spelling might be important
Yesterday a gentleman came into our office, bringing paperwork that someone in a different office filled out for him. It turns out that the man works at a local retail store stocking merchandise. Under the occupation category on his forms, they meant to write “stocker,” but misspelled it. And, with just a couple incorrect letters, this poor man went from someone trying to make an honest living stocking merchandise to a shady character hiding behind bushes.
