Stupid Spell Check.
#1
Stupid Spell Check.
Ok, I think it is fantastic for horrible spellers like me that the words are underlined to make me feel stupid enough to google them so I can find the correct spelling. But I don't google a word if I don't get a red line under it. 

But damn it, for weeks now I have been spelling it "Mien" Kampf" and when I type "Mien" it DOES NOT give me a red line, but when I spell it "Mein" correctly it does. I've been using this meme for weeks to poke fun of Mein Drumpf. So why is my spell checker doing this?

And also when Kampf it also does the same thing.

Because the spell checker is looking for English words. 'Mien' is an English word, 'Mein' and 'Kampf' are not.

Ugggggg. See again, I really  do try to spell correctly. If I had staff to check my work, I would so do that. But I don't get paid a dime for it. You can be good at ideas and certain things and suck at other things. I've seen the smartest college professors with the messiest office. I think presentation in public is important, but if all someone is doing is hearing it and not reading it, they cant hear your spelling mistakes.

I have promised myself that if I ever luck out and manage to be able to pay my bills with my opinion and poetry, most certainly would I have a staff. I really have hated that I am a horrible speller. But I also wont live my life in fear of being imperfect. I think context matters. There is a huge difference between being a no name and being in the public eye. Yes everyone SHOULD do their best to spell correctly, and I do love that annoying red line, because it helps me, but right now that is all I have.

Also when a word is underlined in red, instead of googling it, right click on it and the correct word will appear in a drop down menu.

RE: Stupid Spell Check.
I halve a spelling checker,
It came with my pea see.
It plainly marks four my revue
Mistakes I dew knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait aweigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the era rite
Its rarely ever wrong.
I halve scent this massage threw it,
And I'm shore your pleased too no
Its letter prefect in every weigh
My checker tolled me sew.

You might want to add can't and won't.
Clearly your spell checker has a very positive attitude to omit these words. :-)
