18 Typos That Made These Situations Awkward

Mistakes. Everybody makes them, but not everyone has the bad luck of having their grammar errors broadcasted to the world via the internet. These people sure do, though!

Whatever the reason, all of the typos and funny misspellings collected here definitely made life more awkward for everyone involved.

When you think about it, anyone could have made the mistakes on this list. From scholars to newscasters and housewives, everyone forgets to do a spelling and grammar check from time to time. In most cases, it's nothing to be embarrassed about, but the people responsible for the sign and newspaper typos shown here probably want to hide under a rock until the end of time.

It's highly likely that a few people lost their jobs after some of these spelling fails. If they didn't, then hopefully they were sent back to the second grade to learn the basic rules of spelling and grammar.
