Spelling or English as Your First Language


Now I understand that English is not the first language for many people in the U.S., to include those that were born and raised here.

Some English word are difficult to spell...well some are more difficult to some than to others.

But come on people, if you have a profession, you should at least learn to spell the name of your job. That isn't asking too much (see I used TOO and not TO...if you have to ask why, don't...please don't).

Take this one: "Occupation: Bodygaurd"

Now I am pretty sure gaurd isn't the French spelling of examiner. So I can only assume, that he is a body guard, like security guard or national guard. Now it could be a simple misspelling you say, but he repeated the error a few times. So I can only think that he doesn't know how to spell the name of his job or he is being cute by intentionally misspelling what he does for a living (however if I was a highly successful business guy that required the services of a body guard, then I wouldn't want one that had some cute misspelling of his job title). But I am not in need of a body guard or gaurd, so none need apply.
