Given the abysmal state of most school text books these days when it comes to spelling errors, typos, and general inaccuracies, it’s no wonder when people don’t take the time to proofread things very closely before they make them. For example, in Charlotte, North Carolina, there’s a road called Independence Boulevard. However, when the North Carolina Department of Transportation was putting together the sign, nobody noticed that “Independence” was mistyped as “Indepednence” on the giant green road sign. As a result, the sign was put up over Interstate 277 for all the world to point and laugh at.
Apparently people in North Carolina aren’t exactly the most careful proofreaders in the world. In Guilford, North Carolina, street painters misspelled the word “school” as “shcool,” right in front of a school building! Who knows how many street signs are misspelled on that 95 miles of Interstate 85 between the two cities?
