I found this on Facebook and knew people over here would like it.
A couple of them are not safe for work.

Heh, I'm amused.  But I also know that Outlook is a blessing for the spelling/grammar help it provides. 

There is a 'view more' option at the end of the page with some slightly more hit or miss ones.  Pg 3 was all reruns :(

I've seen #7 posted in classrooms.

It really makes me mad when spellcheck tries to correct words like "you're" and "their."

The abbreviated keyboard on phones and tablets doesn't help, either.  It makes us feel it's not worth the effort to use quotes and possessives properly. For example, "Jenna's puppy," is messy to enter.

Thanks for the amusing post.
