Eh, but spelling doesn’t matter, right?

May 20, 2016 at 1:57 pm (Stuff that Bugs Me Right Now)

So we’re helping a family that couldn’t remember how to spell the name of the town where their loved one was born. They were pretty far off at first, but they got close enough eventually that I was able to google the place and find the correct spelling, which we would then use in the obituary and death certificate.

Upon telling them the correct spelling, the daughter replied: “Well, I don’t know. Should we use that spelling?”

"Meh. Why bother?"

“Meh. Why bother?”
