when I type a very common word and suddenly it just doesn't look right and I start questioning if I really know how to spell it and I keep looking at it ... it looks wrong but I know it's right.

just happens so randomly.

"tried" is the current word

I do that all the time. I installed a dictionary widget so I could speed up the second-guessing process. :nerd:

Sort of like vuja-de.

This happens to me all the time when I'm working on manuscripts. Sometimes I'll be looking for every occurance of a particular term, and after the 200th instance, it starts to look really wrong. Drives me crazy.

Dang it, now you just made me do it, "biscuit" that never looks right, but spell check also likes "bisquit" but my little dicionary in my desk says the first one is the way. :whistle:

I don't know, guess I don't care. :laugh: Just have to spell it the same in a post if I use it more than once. :D

I just did it with "past" today. I typed out the sentence with "passed" and still sat there debating which one was right, even after going over what both meant in my head.

I felt like a dolt.

That just happened today. I was at the whiteboard in front of class writing the words, quarter, dime, nickel, and penny.

The word nickel just looked wrong to me.....if but for a brief moment.

I do that a lot...hate it. It also happens when I know how to spell the word, but if someone asks me how to spell it, forget about it! lol

The worst has to be that someone asked for my phone number today. I had to take out my cell phone and pretend to dial it because I didn't have the slightest clue what it was. We've had this number for 8 years!! lol I hardly call it so I couldn't think of what it was off the top of my head.

I had a boss with the last name of Nickles once. After writing her name a zillion times, I have trouble with nickel/nickels too. I keep wanting to spell those words like her last name.

I have the worst time with double letter words. Commitment or committment? (Firefox tells me the first is right)

Speaking of which, that word and "occasionally" never look right to me.
